Nov.9: It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice. (unknown author)

Where’s our Hope? I looked up the meaning of nice and was surprised to see that in the 13th century it was used to describe foolish, stupid, senseless, careless, among others. Oh yeah, it was a very nice word indeed, my kind of sarcasm! Then by the 17th century it had developed into meaning good, enjoyable, or of good quality, polite, friendly.

Today nice seems to describe mediocre at best. Oh he’s nice enough but… it was a nice gift….I had a nice time…. not great and not terrible, just somewhere in between. Boring!

Ladies let us not just be nice, lets be worthy!

“Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future .                                             She opens her mouth in wisdom. And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.                                                                                                                                        Proverbs 31:25,26 NAS

About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
