Words will never harm you???


The words flew from her lips
with skin piercing velocity.
They ripped and cut and left
gaping wounds that may
take a lifetime heal.
His only recourse – forgive.

Forgive or bleed out, either or, the choice is his.

Well done in 160 characters MM.

Forgiveness is the best recourse but not always the easiest.

Excellent 160.

Even without the picture, your words are very graphic. You are REALLY good at this 160 thingy. I have enough of a challenge with the 55 words! Enjoy your Sunday...in the jacuzzi?

people who forgive are the only people who can be truly happy, since forgiveness saves themselves & also the other!

In some cases, words can be deadly weapons.

I was told once that I was the queen of the stinging comment as a teenager. Sorry that seems to have been passed down.

Forgiveness is such a wonderful spiritual gift for those of us who have not yet grasped the spiritual truth that we are complete within ourselves - the only place that God can be found.

Words can cut like a sword but it also can heal the wound. We have a choice to use it for good.
