Tonight a fellow pastor's wife came over for supper on her way through town. I must tell you all that sometimes it is so nice to talk with someone who GETS IT. Someone who is actually in the same position I am in (albeit with several years more experience). It is always nice to hear that other people go through the same nonsense that you are going through and have survived it. With joy. Not as a martyr but victoriously.
It helps that this particular lady is super down to earth and extremely intelligent all at the same time. So thanks Priscilla for an encouraging meal.
Priscilla reminded me of the need for "life giving words". It is so important for us all to realize the impact of our words on others and to take the opportunity to give life giving words instead of words that take away.
It is like I have always said- If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Words to live by people.
