Positive Words - Days 11-14

I've had laryngitis since Sunday.  Every word is such an effort that I've needed to think through every little thing I say before it comes out of my mouth. 

So there, laryngitis is a blessing.  :-)

That was a very tough challenge.  It really made me aware of how much negative stuff really does come out.  And the thoughts that I didn't say...let's just say that I haven't arrived yet.

7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.        James 3:7-10

Blessings to you,
