Say What You Need To Say

Hello, Gate Goers…it has been way too long..
Since my last post, I have had the privilege of having the Lord take me on some twists and turns in life and I am grateful that He continues to show me His grace and mercy down each road He leads me to.

My mother went to be with the Lord a little over a year ago. I miss her presence here on earth, but I am grateful that her heart that had been sick for many years is now at peace.
I’ve learned many things since then, and the one thing that sticks with me every day is that we need to say the things we need to say to the people that matter most to us.

 We all seem to be in such a hurry that we miss chances—little pockets of time that are opportunities to tell people around us how much they mean to us.

While they are here.

While we are here.

Proverbs 18:21 states, “Death and life are in the power of your tongue…”

I have committed to speaking words of life over my family and friends. Life breeds life. My prayer for you today is that you will do the same.

Tell your mother you love her –no matter what.

Tell your kids you love them—no matter how much they get on your nerves!

Tell your closest friends how you couldn’t imagine life without them.

Let’s commit to breed life…over our families, homes, neighborhoods and friendships.

John Mayer’s song “Say What You Need To Say” lyrics put it simply:

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say….
