Do Words Matter?

Lately, I have been thinking about the importance of words.  These last few weeks we have seen the importance of words in the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates.
We've heard true, false, rude and kind words.

Our family has been following very closely the happenings of friends who are in Uganda seeking to get guardianship of two precious little ones.  Words of anguish have been interspersed with pleas for prayer and then joyous words of rejoicing when these prayers were answered.  Today, after several days of begging God to do what was a humanly impossible act, came these beautiful words:

WE WILL HAVE OUR PASSPORTS ON MONDAY!!!!
EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SIGNED.
THANK YOU JESUS
 It's not all over for them until they are on that plane heading back to Texas, but for today, these were beautiful words and we look forward to meeting James and Jolie.
 
"IT'S OFFICIAL!  I AM A TEXAS A&M AGGIE!!!!!"
These were the more than welcome words from our oldest granddaughter yesterday.  She has worked hard to achieve this goal and we could not be more proud of her accomplishments.
 

Some of the sweetest words I hear every day are, "Have I told you today that I love you?"  When I reply, "Not that I can remember," Hubby always says those precious words, "I love you!"

Yes, words do matter!
Without a doubt, the most precious and important words spoken are in the Bible:

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things persent, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:35-39

Now you share "words that matter" with someone.
