Words.........

Tonight's blog post is inspired by Beth over at Homedaisy/Cottage Bethy. If you haven't visited her, you MUST! Her home is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Every pictures gives me peace and melts my heart. She has a decorating gift and amazing taste, plus she is a true sweetheart to boot....anyways, she posted words on her blog and asked to see words in our homes so I went around taking pictures. I know I missed lots of things, but these are the bulk of the words on display throughout my home. To me words have so much power. They can bring you comfort, bring you happiness, make you think, and sometime words make you sad or angry. That's why it's so important to choose your words carefully, whether in spoken or written form, because once it's out there you can never take them back. I always try to be kind with my words, because I know I've hurt people with my words before and I've been hurt so many times by unkind words to me. Even though I've forgiven others and myself for those things, I still remember them. However, I don't dwell on them. You can't have peace in your heart and bad things in there at the same time. It just doesn't work. My advise tonight is to let go of the grudges against people who have wronged you. Life is too short to let mean people have that much power over you. I know it's not an easy thing to do, but if you forgive, you will feel the burden lifted off of you and I promise you will feel inner happiness...which in turn lets your outer happiness and beauty shine through....honest!
Now take a little tour around the words found in the George home.


oh so true!






Love this!

the overlay says "we may not have it all together but together we have it all"

For my honey



silly, but I love his little face



something we should all remember when leaving the house




Perfect one to end with.

I do plan to order some vinyl wall word from my friend Michele with some quotes that are special to me....and Michele...if you are reading this, my mom packed your tool, but I found it. I'm so sorry and promise to get it to you very SOON!
Thanks you so much everyone for sharing bits YOU with ME.

is it a coincidence or did you aim that post at me, perhaps I'm feeling paranoid at the moment ;)

Amie said...

I am so glad I have checked your blog b4 going to bed.... I have had a crappy day with the kids and Salty, yelled at them all and feel horrible.

This makes me have a good think!

Andi said...

Love all your "words"! I even referred to them in a comment I made on one of Susie Q's earlier posts.

Does your friend Michelle take orders from others for vinyl or is this just something she does for you? If she has a web site or special link to order from would you post it please? You may have already in one of your earlier posts but I couldn't find it. Thanks.

I love this post!! It will be awhile before I could post the items of "sayings". This post was very inspirational and thank you for it.

I loved the "It's nice to be important but it is more important to be nice."

Take care,
LOve,
Terri

I love all of these! I'm still searching for one that says, "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" for above the boys' bedroom door.

Cassandra said...

I truly love your words! I bought the word "LOVE" and am anxious to buy more. I'm trying not to buy much now though since we will be moving in a few months. My favorites are the "Return With Honor" and "Do what you love". Thanks for sharing your home!

I know what I'm going to do when I get home tonight - I bought three wall plaques a couple of weeks ago that say "faith" "hope" and "peace" (I think - haven't looked at them lately!) and I need to hang them!

Cheryl Wray said...

LOVE the words in your house! Love esp the "All because two people fell in love"!
I'm inspired to blog about this too!

Chickenbells said...

This is my first visit to your blog. I love it! Enjoyed seeing all the signs around your home. I have a few pictures posted on my blog about the words around my home.

~Telah said...

Love all your words, Jolene! I got to thinking about it and I have no words around my house! Unless you want to count the scribble done by my littlest one. :) I need to get me some words, don't I.

Miss Jenny said...

Oh, you girl. I am sitting here reading your words of wisdom and wondering how I could have lived without you for so many years! I've missed my Jo!
