Sticky Notes To Say I'm Sorry

Posted on June 13, 2011 by Cathy in
Sometimes, we make mistakes with the words that come out of our mouth, and even with the words that flow out of our pen. And one of the greatest tragedies is when we choose the wrong words so what comes out is actually different from what our heart really says. And we hurt somebody.

James said the tongue is like fire that can burn down an entire forest. (James 3) The tongue is a small part of the body but can bring huge disaster ( can break a lot of hearts...). And so we always have to choose the right words... the perfect words before we speak or write it down.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Have you hurt someone with your words lately? You made the wrong choice of words and got misunderstood for something you really didn't mean? To your parent? Friend? Loved one? And it breaks your heart that you've broken that person's heart?

Then say "Sorry". Ask for forgiveness. From the person you have hurt and from God. And ask Jesus to help you not to hurt that person again...esp. when you really don't mean it because you love em.

I think I'll post a sticky note today for somebody... to say I'm sorry. *sigh* I told Jesus I make the silliest mistakes a lot of times...

And I could really make that person tree of sticky notes because my regrets are as many as sack of leaves--a big sack of leaves, that is. ( I think I look like the discouraged Honey O. right now... with drooping head and all. *wink*)

If you would happen to read this... tonight, next week or a couple of years after...

I'm so sorry.

That`s not what I meant.

Will you forgive me?

Is there anyone you would like to say sorry too, today?

What a great thing to blog about.
All too often we forget that admission of fault and those two little words can go miles to close gaps between people.

@Tayskye Thank you for leaving a word, Tayskye! Admitting our mistakes also heals our hearts and that of the person we have offended. Asking for forgiveness is sometimes hard but it is a sweet thing that restores relationships. We must not be afraid to say sorry... ;)

@Richard Ling I think everyone of us does, Richard! What matters is how we learn from those mistakes. We can change from day to day!

Blessings to you!
