So many of us say so many things. You know, I just heard some of the most cutting words that I can imagine. It hurt a lot and words speak much of a persons heart. I choose to use my words to build up. I choose to think before I speak and maybe let a little quietness be within me. A dear friend told me something years ago as an encouragement to me because I am generally a quiet person. I was feeling bad because I was quiet but what he said moved me and I remember it well. He said that when you are quiet and are willing to listen, you leave the room knowing what they know and knowing what you know too. So as I stayed quiet for only a moment as experienced those words tonight, I left the room knowing another persons heart and knowing mine as well.
