I am trying to help where I can with regards to my sister & her family. I just hope I am doing more good than harm. That may sound like a strange statement to you, but I am the kind of person that wants to keep everyone moving in a positive direction... as I am told so often, "you live in La La Land". I just believe that the words that come out of my mouth sets the tone for my attitude & outlook on things. I have not always been that way, unfortunately, but God has done a real work in me where that is concerned. The words that I speak are the words I hear & not only me but anyone around me & also the devil... why should I give him the chance to use my own words against me????
The written word can be so good...it really can impact life... for instance the Bible... there is life in those words. Just like the spoken word... we can speak life or we can speak destruction. Try taking a verse & reading it out loud... it might sound weird, but I have found when I do that it gives me so much comfort. On the other hand, when I speak something bad about someone or even about myself... is there ever any comfort in that???
"Be done with every trace of wickedness and all deceit and insincerity and grudges (envy, jealousy) and slander and evil speaking of every kind." I Peter 2:1
We, as Christians, are told to be encouraging to others... my question to you is... how do you encourage people that may not want to be encouraged?
Just a little card I put together for a birthday wish... like I said before, I have this butterfly thing going. It is simple, but I love the colors. And yes, I actually used some of my jeweled flowers!
Thanks for stopping & reading my thoughts... your visits are appreciated! with a grateFUL HEART, carin
