Wisdom from Georgie Girl

 

Knowing What to Say 

Take care when you speak in judgment.
Words are powerful weapons…

Never make a person look like a fool with your tongue;
Never make a person look small with your mouth.

A hard word, a sharp word, can burn for a long time,
Deep in the heart, leaving a scar.

Accept that others think differently,
Act differently,
Feel differently,
Speak differently.

Be mild and healing with your words.
Words should be lights.
Words should be calm and bring people together;
Being peace.

Where words are weapons,
People face each other like enemies.
Life is too short, our world too small
To turn it into a battlefield.
