Our words have POWER, to create, to connect, to uplift, or to wound. When we are not careful with our thoughts, our words reflect that carelessness, sometimes with lasting damage. We will not be perfect, we will not always say the right thing, but in the moment that we realize our words have caused pain, we have the choice and the ability to use words to ask for forgiveness.
“Today I will be mindful of my words and do my best to be thoughtful before speaking. But if I stumble in this commitment, the moment I realize I have caused pain, I will do my best to apologize.”
