Proverbs 16:24
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Two people blessed me yesterday simply with the power of their gracious words. In the midst of my crazy busy life, at home and at work, when sometimes I get overwhelmed with the gravity of the negative, these two women spoke words that were truly sweet to my soul and healing to my bones (and heart, and spirit).

Never forget the power of your words to bring healing to others. Never forget that a simple thank you (be specific), goes a long way to bringing joy to another person’s life. Never forget that your words have the power to help and heal or to hurt and tear down. It is you that makes the choice to speak words of hope, health, joy, grace and gratitude.

It doesn’t have to be much: a phone call, text or Facebook message, e-mail, or face-to-face as you pass in the hall will all do the trick.

Who will you bless with your gracious words today?
