Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

Random ponderings....
By SDB February 5, 2013
There are times in all our lives when someone seems to not know better, are plain rude, or offend us with their words or deeds. Does a "knee jerk" acknowledgement or reaction affect one's own words and deeds? If one takes the course of condemning them or seeking retaliation does it only add 'fuel to the fire' and place one in a position to be no better with one's own words or deeds?

In most instances, would it not be better to pray for them that they may gain wisdom and understanding? Would it not be better to have the ability and grace to forgive them for what they do not seem to know or understand? Would not the gossip, rudeness, hurtful words or deeds of others more quickly fade away with the wind if one did not add more 'fuel to the fire'? It seems if one would stop for a moment, no matter how angry or hurt one might be that many simple misunderstandings, or issues with others would not burst into uncontrollable flames by adding more 'fuel to the fire' that could result in unintended consequences.

"Everything we do and say, not only affects us but also touches all the lives of those around us. Many times those words and deeds have unintended far reaching results and could create bigger issues than we anticipated in which they may touch the lives of those we don't even know."
