Words like freezing rain

IMG_2589

You intend them to be kind and you sprinkle them with a light hand, but they freeze upon impact.   Soon there is a slick barrier between you and the hearer.  It’s not a killing frost, just an icy setback.  Time and warmth will melt the coating, leaving no trace.                          Take care not to slip.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable
in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

  1. Beautiful Jyl! Absolutely perfectly describing words I spoke this morning. Praying the warmth comes quickly. Believing no trace will be left, praise be to God!
