"One there is above all others,
Well deserves the name of Friend
His is love beyond a brother's,
Costly, free, and knows no end."
This is true poetry. True, meaningful words! Is there not someone in an influential position for America who is so eloquent and convincing? The Inauguration Emancipation shows just how loose we Americans are becoming with our speech. Just think - we have millions of words to choose from and yet we use (probably) only about 10% of them. I could be exaggerating, or I could be just right! Think - the Lord God gave us all those piles and bundles of words - and we use so little. How sad! What beautiful words we exclude from our vocabularies, leaving us dull and colorless. No secrecy or mystery. No charm or intelligence. My Mom use to harp on me about improving my vocabulary. I never really listened to her until now, and I'm practically repeating her words. I started trying to get a better grip of words just a few months ago. I'm sixteen now and I'm doing exceptionally well (I think)! It's not hard! This is just a thought. I'm not trying to convict you, just share what's in my heart. There are lovely movies in which the characters have particularly picked out words for them to speak. Life's words can't be that perfect - but it can be close. We speak a beautiful language, but most of the time it sounds harsh and dry because our speech is so 'limited'. It doesn't have to be that way......
