Life giving words hold far more power than we realize. They are authentic, meaningful and sincere, and seek to bless another, rather than seeking a personal ‘feel good’. Life giving words are affirming words that acknowledge purpose and value, where life has declared death and an end.
Like autumn sunshine on coloured leaves–a season when life sheds from nature–words that offer hope, draw indescribable beauty from a wounded heart. And while autumn and winter stand in between, they are the seeds that awaken hope and hold the promise of spring, when new life will burst from the soul.
Hope is the light that shines it’s warmth on that promise… the light that guides the wounded heart. Speak words of life; it may be what gives one heart a reason to live.

So true, Trudy! Death and life are truly in the power of the tongue.
