Words are powerful. In the Bible the book of James says the tongue can pour forth both blessings and curses. The person that can control the tongue is perfect. My heart’s greatest longing is to use my words to bless and build up others. I know I have hit the jackpot (Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!) when my gift causes the recipient to burst out in tears and exclaimations. 🙂
The picture above is a photo I took and downloaded to PowerPoint then added text using each letter of my friend’s name to describe a virtue or character trait I admired about her. The next thing I did was find an interesting rock from my garden and painted the word “Precious” and the Bible reference Jeremiah 31:3 on it. My purpose was to let her know just how precious she is to God for He says “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”. I will give my friend and co-worker these gifts tomorrow night for her going away party. Do you think I will hit the jackpot? Would you like to receive such a humble gift of love?
