WORD FURROWS

WORD FURROWS

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

The farmer tills the soil and plants the seed.
Similarly, word furrows are lines of words plowed and burrowed into us from our childhood and to this day.
The stronger and more emphatically words are pronounced and announced over us, the deeper the furrow and plow into the soul's soil.
Rich deep furrows suggest a rich deep harvest ... of some kind.
What do I hope to do through words but plant furrows of my own inside of you.

"The best word shakers were the ones who understood the true power of words. They were the ones who could climb the highest."
-Markus Zusak

It ought to be suggested that at any given moment we have the power to change our lives by simply changing our vocabulary. In applying wholesome, energizing, and purposeful words to ourselves and to others we remedy almost any and every negative condition and render to ourselves a positive outcome of grace, acceptance, and success.

Consider word furrows:
+Shane was governed by rigid, hateful words and strict discipline from early childhood. Hate seeds planted early by both of his parents were fostered and furrowed deep into the lad's tender heart where they lay dormant and later developed.
But not negatively as some might suppose and suggest.
Shane explored the positive world of words through books ... of which he had access to many. He delved into the rich resource of great mens' lives and learned that many had developed success later in life by acclimating themselves to the difficulties and hardships imposed and furrowed into them in younger years of life and then utilizing them later as hopeful resources of wisdom, compassion, and resilience.
Indeed, Shane's outlook began to be curiously and beautifully governed and bettered through thoughtfully recreating scenarios on paper and constructing hopeful outcomes. He declared himself to be a "paper-shaker," an effective writer and climber who would ultimately live to empower others and advocate possibility and potential where others saw negativity and problems.
Shane is a hope-breeder, a life-feeder, and a positive "seeder."
His positive words to others are bore from deep furrows of sustained and prolonged pain ... and then transformed into a great and enriching harvest empowerment whereby others are given hope.
A positive word furrow is a very forcible thing.

  "No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas change the world."
-John Keating

+Kara's elementary teacher enlisted a positive word furrow into Kara's life that took root and grew up into her adulthood. Cupping young Kara's drooping and tired head into her hands, Miss Trumane spoke a well entrenched life furrow:
"I predict a life for you teeming with success, Kara. Your mind is brilliant, your writing is good, and your earnest thoughtfulness is demonstratively employed in compassion and consideration to others. You possess rare virtues at an early age and will be a woman talked about one day. Leave home at home. See beyond."
And that's just what Kara did.
A forceful writer and eloquent speaker, Kara advocates and champions childrens' rights today. She affects the world around her with possibility and positivity and spreads a hopeful harvest wherever she goes.
Kara is a hope carrier and positive seed planter. She deposits and delivers bottomless, positive words into scarred and furrowed souls and she makes a beautiful difference in both the planting and harvest wherever she goes.
A positive word furrow is a very empowering thing.

I want good for you and to plant in you the suggestion that deep furrowed words of any kind can be supplanted and tendered with a more endearing and lasting kind.
Speak words that empower, energize, and uplift. Speak positive words deep into the furrows of the soul's soil ...
And then wait for the water and the sun.
The harvest will be sweet.
Word Furrows.
