A hard lesson-

The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
I have been on both ends of this verse-
I have said 'things' to people I really love(d) that was out of pure anger.
To this day the words haunt me.
I have said I was sorry but nothing changed.
I asked for forgiveness but again nothing has changed.

However, when I have been on the receiving end...
I am told to move on and I have-
I've been told to forgive and I am trying-
I've been told to make up and be friends I have tried-
I am so thankful the Lord forgives us... Thank you Lord!

Carson, In life please remember your tongue is the sharpest weapon.
Your tongue can break up relationships.
Your tongue can scar someones heart.
Your tongue can be controlled-
Please think before you speak.
Before you respond with a negative word- pray

I cried when I read your comment on my post. That hug in August - it is what is getting me through these hard times. I'll have to catch you up on recent events, but your post speaks to them. I need forgiveness and I need to forgive. I need to extend grace and I need it given to me. So happy that you're in my life, Gret. Much love and many, many hugs. Times are difficult right now and the road I am currently walking...I see your footprints and know you've been here. I think this is why the Lord brought us together.
