Peaceful easy feeling and giving THANKS our youngest is alive. As more details surface he began to realize he should not be here. Mention was made by him that he will not be riding his motorcycle for awhile. HE mentioned it. Even mentioned the I MIGHT SELL IT words.

We go to the doctor at 8 this morning to get re bandaged. We picked up a post op surgery shoe for him yesterday and a cane. Gosh those canes are expensive. I told him not to lose it as it would be Terry's size for later in life and it is a nice cane. We will know more once we see how things are healing. He felt better yesterday afternoon, so he probably will return home today or tomorrow.

My Neale Walsch email today talked about TRUTH. Truth spoken is a gift given. When truth is withheld a gift is denied. Part of an old adage says, "the truth hurts". If you think about it, the opposite is true. No truth is too hurtful. In the same breath, no lie is harmless. A truth will open your heart to another person. A lie will create a wall of separation.

They way you share a truth could be hurtful in how it is shared with both the given situation and tone of voice. So if you have something to share with someone that is truthful, speak your words in such a way that only peace and honestly come forth from you. It is funny how some folks lie so well and deliver those lies with a spoonful of honey making it easy for us to believe what they say. Didn't Tonto from the Lone Ranger say something about "You speak with a forked tongue."? Gosh I am old.

Watch what you say and do with those around you and if you must share some truth that could cause hurt, pray first that the Lord will give you the right words and a peace as you speak.


“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” 1 John 2:1
