Words

By: Nan Forehand

The amazing power of a word;
Keep it silent or should it be heard?
Strong enough to break a heart,
a word can make a teardrop start.
Not so much the sound, but the tone;
leave those mean words alone.
God gave us words to encourage.
Don’t use them to discourage.
Say all the kind things you can.
God loves every boy and girl,woman and man.
Use all the good words your mama taught.
‘twas with Jesus’ blood you were bought.
Jesus Himself others did scorn.
His clothes and His body, both badly torn.
Live a good life with prayer, so fervent.
He will say “Well done, my good and faithful servant."

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
