    A friend recently shared with me this letter

    from the author Victor Hugo (Les Miserables) to his lover Charlotte Drouet. The simple reading of his words made me shiver. I felt I had to translate is and share it with you. English translation: Night between the 17 and 18th February 1841 Can you remember my beloved...

    The Lord led me to a scripture verse in the

    Bible this morning. "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." Proverbs 18:4-7 A lot of us could avoid disappointment and heartache if we would just change the way we speak and think and pray. In Jesus name, you have the...

    What you say can really hurt people :|

    Sometimes you won't see it and then when it's really obvious and they're showing it, it's too late to fix or they won't accept anything from you ever again because they're afraid to be hurt again. Words can be powerful in stories, love and in death.

    Words Hurt

    They say that words have no effect, that they are just wind and noise: "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing". We are often told that actions speak louder than words do. It is even said that "sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you,". They are...

    The Power Of Description

    I once had a job where I took my lunch in a quiet room and wrote my thoughts. I fell into a rhythm of describing the same street and scene that I saw every day. I live in Oregon, so many days were rainy, cool, and what some would call dreary. But, in this excorcise I learned...

    “So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays...
