TAMING THE TONGUE: It is beautiful (and scary!) to see in action just how much power words can have. – I was in an on-line chat where a young woman was sharing her confused feelings about her son.
He had been conceived while she was living with her then-boyfriend. They had become Christians and married, but she said she was having a hard time confessing her long-time sin of premarital sex, became it had given her their beautiful son.
I wrote, “You don’t have your son because of your sin. You have him in spite of your sin.”
She was just SO relieved and uplifted to understand this thing that merely took substituting “in spite of” for “because.”
The scary part, of course, is that if we can do so much good with a few words, imagine how much damage we do when we speak thoughtlessly or out of malice.
BREAKING IN: This is a great story … but who knew there are still places where prisoners working on road crews actually wear black and white stripes! LOL

KAVANAUGH: Andrew Klavan has this to say about the latest round of lies aimed at Justice Brett – “The New York Times, a former newspaper, has set off a bombshell with a new report of completely unsubstantiated rumors of yet another absurd sexual allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The report of the factually empty gossip was such a bombshell that it blew several Times reporters out of the newsroom and into a vast darkness of journalistic malfeasance where they floated desolate in a soul-destroying moral vacuum along with most of the Times’ editorial staff. … The woman in question says she has no memory of the incident.”
The New York Times was forced to issue a significant correction Sunday to its “bombshell” report on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after being called out by other journalists for excluding exculpatory evidence from their initial report.
President Trump called them “horrible people” and encouraged Justice Kavanaugh to sue.
