Words!  Our lives are filled with words.  Words that we speak... words that we write... words that we think but go unsaid.  And, in these days of social media, we also have words expressed as emojis.  We communicate our thoughts and ideas and feelings throughout the day.  Our words reflect the busyness of our daily lives.  And, our love too.  Take a moment to think about what you have said today.  Which words were full of love and loving kindness.  Which words do you regret saying or writing or texting?  Why is this?  Which thoughts were positive and uplifting?  Which do you regret thinking?

This Pentecost, I have been thinking about how the Holy Spirit filled Peter with the words to say to the crowds in Jerusalem and all of the apostles with the words to say to these visitors.  These visitors were amazed to hear these powerful and moving words being spoken in their own language.  For the first time, they heard God's message of love in their own language.

It is when we are in tune with God's Spirit that we are best placed to speak words of love... even in trying circumstances!  Look back at today's regrets.  How could God's Spirit have re-framed how you were feeling and re-shaped your words?

May God's Spirit bless and guide all of our words - spoken and unspoken.  May we speak with love.

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina
