It is difficult to find the right words, “try as we might.”

A Way With Words

This blog is devoted to words.  I spend a lot of time exploring how words are used in the writings of others and experimenting in my own writing ways to best use words to express beauty and meaning.  I firmly believe in the value of finding just the right words to communicate effectively.  Try as we might, though, we always fall short.  Our words are ultimately imperfect offerings.

And so, more than anything, I devote this blog to the “final, perfect Word” celebrated in this song by Michael Card –

 You and me we use so very many clumsy words.
The noise of what we often say is not worth being heard.
When the Father’s Wisdom wanted to communicate His love,
He spoke it in one final perfect Word.

Chorus:
He spoke the Incarnation and then so was born the Son.
His final word was Jesus, He needed no other one.

One thought on “

  1. I’m happy you found this post meaningful and re-blogged it. I listened to Michael Card this afternoon and found this song really spoke to me in my writing life right now. Even when I think I’ve found “just the right words” in my work, I am humbled when I consider God’s perfect Word.
