For You 💖

A very sweet lady wrote these comforting words for me and I now pass them along to YOU my beautiful readers. Whatever is bothering you, wherever you are, however you feel. At this very moment, YOU ARE LOVED!

Wish I could sit down with you and give you a long, gentle hug.

I am sad to hear all of the pain in your voice.

I get it though.

You are Enough.

You are Beautiful inside and out.

God is with you.

He is your nearest, your dearest Friend.

He will never leave you.

He will never forsake you.

He will never be too sick.

He will always be there for you.


I am praying that He will wrap His Arms

around you and be your Comfort and your

JOY right now.

And that’s my prayer for you too! If you are sad, lonely, depressed…..look up. God cares and hears your cries. He understands. He knows. He will never leave or forsake you. Ever. Run to Him. Sit at the foot of the cross in full surrender and let it all go.

Much love,

Viv 🙏❤

Healing words

There are two kinds of words; words that hurt and words that heal. We all do it. We use words like daggers cutting people down into bits with our tongues. The problem is once they pop out they can’t be permanently erased even after apologizing profusely.

When my kids were in kindergarten our curriculum had a special fun project we did to demonstrate the importance of using words for good and not evil. I would give them a band-aid to keep in their pocket. Then I instructed them to give it to someone else who was sad, hurt or upset. We used the visual band-aid to demonstrate the deep importance of using healing words, like the band-aid helps to heal hurts, so the words we use can heal, restore and bring balm to the broken. They loved it, (especially when I had Spider Man band-aids) because in their 6 year old minds, band-aids always make the boo boos better.

Words are very powerful things. The sticks and stones rhyme can not be farther from true, because physically words can hurt us, since our emotions and bodies are so intermixed.

We have a choice; we can choose to use our words to heal, like band-aids or hurt like daggers. It’s not easy controlling our tongues but with God’s help through prayer and a heart that desires to honor God in all we say, we can choose to use words that heal and in the process those healing words will be balm to our own souls too.

Much love and blessings,
