I love words.

They are like the clay that I mold into a vessel that carries things. They are a way to paint pictures, provoke emotions, get people to think, get my message across.  For me, words are a creative way to express my very soul.

I love to make them dance, tell a story, make a point.

Words in my hand make me happy. I rearrange them until they feel just right, and the coma or the period, they intensify the message.

Words are communication. Words have creative power.


Did you ever read a great book, and you found yourself sucked into the story? You saw the characters, and the town and the house and the big oak tree, you could smell the apple pie and the fresh grass after the rain? This is the power of words.

And my God, He created all that there is with words.

He said, “let there be,” and there was.

Words create.

Words can evoke powerful emotions, good or bad. God wasn’t joking when He declared that “life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

With my words, on my tongue or on the page, I can slice, edify, kill, nurture, humiliate, restore dignity. I can clothe people with shame or deposit a crown of honor on their heads.

Words, they are like arrows that plunge deep into the soul.

Words, they are like wings that bring shelter in the storm.

And they don’t need to be numerous or fancy to have an impact on the hearer.

I told you so. You always. You never. Really? Kidding, right?  Worthless

Wow! So proud of you. Amazing. Lovely. The Only One.

But here is the kicker: did you ever think that you are the first hearer of your words?
