So I am going to try weekly to post new words for the previous week which I have learned. Maybe we can all learn something. After all, I started playing Words With Friends to help my brain and to make me think a little.

Ensilage -prevesation of green fodder in a silo or pit

Selcouth -strange, uncommon

Brisance -shattering effect of a high explosive

Carp - to find fault or complain querlously or unreasonably
-a type of fish

Conniption - Fit of hysterical excitement or anger

Moschate -having a musky smell

Ruck -large number or quantity, mass

Decide To Forgive Poem

This is from Dear Abby advice column.The poem is by the late Robert Muller,a former assistant secretary-general of the United Nations.
I thought this is a really inspiring poem and makes one pause and think.
Therefore I am sharing it.There is also a schedule for one to forgive.


Decide to forgive

For resentment is negative

Resentment is poisonous

Resentment diminishes and devours the self.

Be the first to forgive,

To smile and to take the first step

And you will see happiness bloom

On the face of your human brother or sister.

Be always the first

Do not wait for others to forgive

For by forgiving

You become the master of fate

The fashioner of life

A doer of miracles.

To forgive is the highest,

Most beautiful form of love.

In return you will receive

Untold peace and happiness.

And here is the program for achieving a truly forgiving heart:

SUNDAY: Forgive yourself.

MONDAY: Forgive your family.

TUESDAY: Forgive your friends and associates.

WEDNESDAY: Forgive across economic lines within your own nation.

THURSDAY: Forgive across cultural lines within your own nation.

FRIDAY: Forgive across political lines within your own nation.

SATURDAY: Forgive other nations.

Only the brave know how to forgive. A coward never forgives.

It is not in his nature.
