Good Words

Mabel Lucie Attwell

     Who doesn't love a compliment?  We all love flattering words that make us feel noticed.  I wore my pink monogrammed jacket this morning to church.  A friend asked me if the 'A' was for Awesome?  I smiled and said yes.  If we all know how good a compliment feels to us personally, and we do, then why isn't our speech filled with them?  Your words can be the difference in somebody having a good day or a bad day.  Compliments can also be good conversation starters.  If you want to talk to someone but aren't sure what to say, start by telling them something you like about them.
     Colossians 3:12  ''Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.''
     Compliments are an act of random kindness, so go on out there and act on it.
''Kind words can warm for three winters, while harsh words can chill even in the heat of summer.''
