Words; aren't they fascinating, compelling, and awesome? I have long had this fascination for words. I am in awe of those who can speak two languages and so have command of words in more than one language, and me I stop and ponder searching for the perfect word to descibe what it is I want to say and only have one language to contend with. :-) Sometimes, though I love and adore words, they are inadequate. Feelings are so intense that I stumble in my mind to find the perfect ones. They seem to be just beyond my grasp hanging out some place in space.
One of those times was after the birth of my first child. As I gazed at him with tears streaming down my cheeks euphoria took over. My heart was joyous and grateful but no words came to mind, just an extreme closeness and gratitude to God mingled with a fear of the tremendous responsibility which lay ahead; a fear of not being equal to the task and not being worthy of the gift.
1. Do you remember a time when you were caught speechless?
2. Is it something you can share with us?
