Or as my mother said, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything!"
"May the words of my mouth be pleasing in your sight, O Lord"

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day, Kelly-Anne!
Love,
Cecilia

Wow, what a list! Thank you for sharing this reminder with us! I pray my words are a good representation of Christ and to know when it is better to be silent.

Hello Dear Kelly-Anne! I hope you are doing well. We are in the busy Christmas season and I'm trying to go slow and enjoy each day as they come. I refuse to miss all the excitement of the holidays! ;)

I love the scriptures you listed... my favorite of course is the Be Still and Know That I Am God! I have a beautiful picture of a single tree with that scripture hanging in my hallway. Love it!

I hope you have a delightful weekend!

Hugs to you, Amy

I think that is very good advice, my friend! Thank you for the reminder.
Silence more peaceful and we might actually hear God's promptings!
