Sparing our words...
Watching what I say is an ongoing challenge for me. I pray about this often -- that the Lord will help me to stop and think and weigh my words (and sometimes even pray) before speaking.
Proverbs 10:19 is a good reminder.
"In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise."
Concerning this verse, Charles Spurgeon wrote:
"How common is the fault of talkativeness. Men talk so much because they think so little. Drums make a great noise because they are hollow. One attribute of a wise man is within the reach of us all -- we can be quiet. Let us try it."
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
