Words

I just got done preparing my 10-minute talk for the Oregon Christian Writers meeting on Saturday.

I am going to talk about words.

Isn't it amazing that through sounds from our mouths or little black lines on a page, people can understand your feelings, laugh with you, know what you're experiencing.

I think words are a gift from God*.

*In spite of episodes such as this:
Quote of the Day:
Jenny: (chatter chatter chatter chatter)
Me: Jenny, do you have to talk so much?
Jenny: Well, I just wanna be a good conversationalist.
Me: Good conversationalists listen more than they talk.
Jenny: (wicked grin) Then you be a good conversationalist!
