To each his own. To me my own.

Time in a bottle

Have you ever thought about the old saying ‘actions speak louder than words’? I’ve thought about it quite a bit lately. It points out the fact that while people may say one thing, their actions may be saying something quite different – and throughout time, a persons actions tend to give a better indication of their true nature.

Reflecting back on prior lessons learned, I know that we can usually relate this to relationships. Sometimes you feel so very certain about your future or how someone else feels about you, and then something crystal clear is presented. It may be something you’ve ignored for a while, perhaps even grown accustomed to throughout time. It could have been a question that was raised before, only to be brushed back under the rug.

Just like time itself.

  1. Beautiful song, Bonnie. I enjoyed listening to it. Thank you for the post. 🙂 Blessings…

    Actions speak louder than words. Only for a time does a person have the opportunity to bring his/her actions and words into alignment. Otherwise, those close will begin to see the disparity.

      Thanks, Carol Ann – I was raised on Jim Croce as a kid, back when it was all on 8-track. It’s one of many past music genres that I never tire of.

      I love your analogy and totally agree. Blessings to you, my dear friend.

      I can see how this song would do that, Duke. I love Croce’s music, he was taken from us way too soon – but left us with a huge legacy.
