Careless Words

“That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.” Arundhati Roy, an Indian author.

I wish I had those words back? Those words I blurted out in anger. But they’re irretrievable.

By the grace of God, I keep pursuing patience. In the most trying moments. In ways that will strengthen the bonds of love.

I need a listening ear and a patient heart. Sometimes the trail gets bumpy. I am so, so thankful that our gracious Lord will not relent in helping me to blossom.
