Have you ever explored words and sometimes their hidden roots?

For example, let’s talk about the word “Message.”  Every challenge we face in life should be looked at as an opportunity for growth.  In order though for us to grow, we need to take our “mess” and make it our message.  Here’s another example of hidden words within words.  Consider the word “Beautiful.”  When we think of the word beautiful, we vision something of great worth and value.  Beauty is desirable and something we all seek.  What if you consider your life as “Be-you-till-full.”  Doing so, you begin to understand that in order to be beautiful, you need to be you!  What a beautiful concept!


Ok, let’s have a little fun and try it one more time.  When you begin to “realize” something important in your life, you do so, because you see things with “Real-eyes.”  Wow…I can’t stop there.  Do you sometimes have figurative “Boulders” in your life that seem to make it difficult to move forward?  Sometimes a boulder is difficult to scale because we don’t allow others who care for us, and are willing to help give you a leg up and over the boulder that was unscalable until someone was willing to help.  What if you took the letter “U” out of Boulder?  Doing so, you suddenly become “Bolder.”  It’s amazing what difference just one letter makes in the meaning of a word or message.  

Choose your words carefully.  King Solomon is attributed to writing much of the Old Testament Book of Proverbs.  He understood the importance of words.  Proverbs 16:24 “Kind words are like honey–sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” Proverbs 18:4 “A person's words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.”

May we all consider the words that we use in conversation with others.  Words are not meant to demean but to lift.  May you realize the beautiful messages you can share with others simply by kind words and a smile.

"There is simple beauty in a cairn and the connection it creates with people from the past and from all over the world. It let's us know that we are not alone."
