It seems like I have been neglecting this blog lately! Life is so busy as you all know. Right now it is Saturday morning around 6:30 AM which is usually my day to sleep in....BUT....my middle son has a football game this morning and must be there by 8:00 AM. So, I got up early to prepare for the day. After the game, myself and the three boys will go shopping for some boots they "desperately need".
So, it seems that it will be a long day with lots to do. On days like this, it is easy to get short tempered and say words that can be sharp and biting. Especially after looking at 25 pair of boots and not finding the right ones and the youngest is running around in circles through the racks, and there are a million "can we get these too?", "can we eat lunch at a restaurant?" All on my day off which should be full of rest and relaxation!
I am reading Proverbs in the Bible each morning and this morning some verses jumped out at me, so I thought that I would share them. These are familiar verses, but prepared my heart for this day. "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones." "The wise in heart will be called prudent, and sweetness of the lips increases learning". It sounds like sweet, pleasant words are pretty important, and if I can focus on pleasant words, those around me will be blessed and even situations that can be "challenging" can go smoothly and happily.
So, I'm off to get the boys up and looking forward to a great day filled with fun, pleasant words and wisdom!
