My Tiny Thoughts

Just another weblog

I am sorry I Stammer!!


Join BSA today

I was told a true story today that made me feel sad and angry at the same time.

It was about a girl who I know very well she is about 37/39 years old lives with her Mother and works with the severely handicapped and has done so for about 25 years.She has a gentle and trusting nature and would always be the first to help somebody in trouble.

She went to see a fun day out at a village about 10/12 miles from where she lived and because there would be a lot of people and cars there her Mother left her to the event and told her to phone on her Mobile phone when she was ready to come home.

She  told me she had a good day out but when she decided to phone home her mobile would not work.She decided to go into a well known local shop the only one open at the time and ask could she use the telephone.She went up to the owner and tried to explain what had happened but the owner said Sorry we do not have a telephone here!

Strange you might say that someone would turn her away like that in fact the Girl was so hurt and confused especially as she had seen a Telephone behind the counter that she walked the whole way home in the rain it took her 3 hours.

Why did the owner tell lies well it could be because the Girl has a Stammer  in fact she has a very bad Stammer and the more she felt embarrassed the more she Stammered                                                

                                               She said this:

If only the owner would have given me 1 minute of her time I could have spoken the words slowly to her and explained what was wrong but because I stammered I was labeled as strange and made to feel like dirt.

I wonder what God would say:


John: What do you think of that God?

God: Sad story

John: Sad people more like !

God: Who the Girl

John: No the shop owner

God: What are you going to do about it?

John: Me what can I do about it?

God:  Why are you so mad with the shop keeper?

John: You know why

God: Tell me

John: People are so ignorant they never take time for anything always running about they never think of the other Person only themselves

God: Do you Mr Goody Two Shoes

John: Well I try

God: How well

John: You know

God: How well

John: Ok I could do more

God: Then why don’t you?

John: You know how it is I don’t like making a fuss

God: Sometimes it is better to speak out to highlight things to educate people but in a gentle way not in a bitter or angry way

John: Why?

God: Because people hear more and understand better when it is said with an educated and caring voice and heart. Teach them to hear more clearly then they can understand even the stammering voice.

John: Why does she stammer Lord?

God: It is a better thing that I listen to the heart and not the mouth John…………….

Mark 7 31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre and went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. 32 And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment, and they begged him to lay his hand on him. 33 And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue. 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” 35 And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. 36 And Jesus [8] charged them to tell no one.

Isaiah 32 The heart of the hasty will understand and know,
and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak distinctly
