The Power of Our Words

"Mothers, be faithful. Don't get discouraged.
Pray for your children, and do not forget to talk to them:
your words will settle down in their hearts.
They never can, they never will forget them.
They may appear not to heed what you say;
they may put on an appearance of thoughtlessness and levity,
which look as though your words were disregarded;
but persevere--- those words are there, and never will be forgotten: but may be called up in years to come when you are dead and gone, and like seed cast in the earth, germinate and produce fruit that shall flourish in immortality."

    1. And thank you for stopping by, Anne. Have a lovely week-end, my friend. :)

  2. Amen! (Hi Lisa! Hope you are doing well and having a lovely fall) ♥

    1. We're are doing well, Jane. Fall is here and I usually love this season, but it was my dear Dad's favorite season, so it is not as wonderful as it used to be. :'(
      Love to you!

  3. Thank you for this encouragement Lisa! Sometimes it feels like our words fall on deaf ears... This was very helpful to read!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, JES. And I really needed to hear this and thought there might be other moms who needed to hear it, too. So glad it was an encouragement to you!
