Sticks and Stones...

As you know, I'm a regular contributor over at Brave Girl Community. Today's post is on forgiveness and reconciliation, and whoa! The Spirit is moving so greatly in this theme. Throughout my Facebook Feed today, Christine Caine, The Busy Mom, The B Note and others are listing verses about love and forgiveness over and over.
Here's an excerpt, click this link to read the entire thing.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but sometimes I’d prefer that.
I’ve never had a broken bone, but many words have hurt me.

I was born with a big heart and a bigger mouth. Though I love people, my delivery of love sometimes is jumbled and/or misinterpreted. How thankful I am for those who take the time to clarify with me. I’m grieved that something I express to them in love has caused them pain—I didn’t see the possibility of misinterpretation! And, I’m relieved that they care enough to let me clarify—they believe I have good intent.
