Words!

O my God words!
How incredible is this gift of language
With it we can share love and hope and dreams
Yet also with it we can damage and hurt

Holy One
May my words this week convey your holy love
May my words this week inspire hope
May my words this week share dreams

Holy One
May I this week – speak with care so as not to cause damage
May I this week – speak with healing and not hurt
May I this week be your lips, convey your Word and be your vessel

Lord open my lips
That I may speak your praise
Amen

  1. Yes, I especially needed to hear the “Holy One
    May I this week – speak with care so as not to cause damage
    May I this week – speak with healing and not hurt
    May I this week be your lips, convey your Word and be your vessel”
    part.
    And, we’ll need to see pics of the puppy…

    Blessings!
