I think I need to find this little poem as one of those wall word thingies... I am totally reposting it from someone's facebook status but I thought it a good reminder for all of us. Because we all need to be reminded of the power of our words to hurt or heal.
A careless word may kindle strife;
A cruel word may wreck a life.
A bitter word may hate instill;
A brutal word may smite and kill.
A gracious word may smooth the way;
A joyous word may light the day;
A timely word may lessen stress;
A loving word may heal and bless.
