Word Wisdom

Welcome, I’m so glad you dropped by today!

Recently, I read some articles by differing authors, that were of great concern.

Their words were written in anger & directed towards the people who had caused them pain.

Now, I’m fully aware of what pain & trauma can do, having lived through many a traumatic situation in my life.

One shared in Forgiving the Unthinkable 

But I’m also acutely aware, as a Clinical Counselor, of what words can do long term.

Especially when spoken in the heat of the moment or through pain altered reasoning. 

You see once spoken or written, words can not be taken back, often causing deep & long lasting wounds to both parties.

So I invite you to journey with me to see what wisdom we can use in such situations in, Traveling Grace Road

Until next time,


You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook

  1. Thanks for the post on the problems associated with speaking or writing in haste and in the moment of hurt or fear. Many of us sound angry (or feel angry) when what we truly are is afraid – afraid that our needs, wants, feelings will go unheard or unmet. I enjoyed my visit to your blog. (My first visit.) I found you through Hearth and and Soul.

    1. Hi Laurie, you’re right many are fearful & carry hurt, writing & speaking in fear & hurt…

      It’s so lovely having you here new friend, you’re most welcome to join me in a cuppa anytime 🙂


  2. I had to learn forgiveness isn’t automatic, and it’s a process that takes time to peel back layer by layer. However, once I finally forgave my offenders, I felt free from the anger and heartache they had caused me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words once again.

  3. I agree. Words swiftly written shouldn’t be words swiftly sent. That’s been my experience. 🙂 My goal is to sit with my words for awhile before I send them or say them because my heart needs time to clear out the junk first. I don’t always succeed, but I’m thankful when I do.

  4. I appreciate getting to say the Lord’s Prayer collectively each Sunday. I also appreciate the chance to admit my wrongdoings, both committed and omitted silently each time. It helps me remember that I am also of need of forgiveness. As Christians forgiveness isn’t really optional but often impossible by myself. Those times I need others’ prayers, company and understanding to help me reach the place.
