i am...

These are just simple words... but I'm wearing them around my neck these days. Words are oh, so very powerful-- for blessing or for cursing, for bringing hope or for bringing despair, for causing joy or for causing sorrow. God warns us continually about our words (our tongue) and the harm or the good they can do to others... and to ourselves.

They can also form our attitudes ... or be a reflection of the same.

I'm wearing these words to remind me every time I look into the mirror...
Or when my hand strays to touch the necklace at my throat... remind me that I AM well and truly blessed...
and that I AM (to be) thankful and grateful...
Bind them always on your heart; fasten them around your neck. When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. ~ Proverbs 6:21-22

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. ~ Proverbs 3:1-4

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. ~Deut 11:18


  1. I haven't commented since I've been reading on my phone (dead laptop), but I wanted to say that these are great words-very fitting for November too.

  2. thanks, dave! so good to hear from you! (i chuckled for days after your last wv comment about 'no perv' & your favorite words!!) :)

  3. I often forget to be thankful and grateful that I'm blessed! I really should wear one around my neck too. :) So glad that you're back :D
