The Journey Within Series
The Power of Spoken Words
By Audrey Eddings
ExcerptYou may remember Al Capp's cartoon of "Lil Abner" in the mountain village of Dogpatch. There was a character in the cartoon strip by the name of Joe Bfstplk [bif-sta-plic]. The little guy walked around with a rain cloud over his head and a life that is just one disaster after another. Wherever Joe went the rain cloud followed him and stayed just over his head, even when all around were sunny skies. When everyone else in Dogpatch was experiencing good things, it seemed like Joe was cursed.
There may be times when you wonder if Joe's black cloud is following you, constantly endeavoring to dampen your spirit, rain on your joy or drown you altogether.
