Say All the Unspoken Things

By: Jenifer Metzger

We are not promised the next day. I've learned this all to well with the losses I've experienced. In the last four years, I've lost my mother-in-law, grandfather, grandmother, an uncle, and a best friend. All unexpected. All shocking. All without getting that chance for a goodbye.

Through the losses, I've learned to say the things you want to say. Tell your loved ones how much you love and appreciate them. Tell the ones who have hurt you that you forgive them. Tell the ones you've hurt that you are sorry. To say all the unspoken things.

John Sowers knows this lesson too. One year after losing his own mother, John began writing letters to his daughters. His letters were turned into a book. Say All the Unspoken Things: A Book of Letters.

In John's letters he addresses his three daughters Rosie, Dass, and Evangeline. In his letters he tells his girls how he feels, how much he loves them, and teaches them important lessons.  He shares stories, his dreams, and his faith. Letters his daughters will always have.

Say All the Unspoken Things: A Book of Letters is a precious book of letters. Each one reminding us of the things we need to say now to our own loved ones.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.


  1. This is such an important message...telling those we love that we love them. Not taking anyone or anything for granted. Forgiving and being sorry are so important even if we think 'they know that' already. It does not matter. Tell them anyway. I too have had much loss in my life and for some, I have no regrets to the words I got to say along the way. For others, well, I am still learning. Thanks for this always timely reminder.
