July 22/21 – Always drink up stream from the herd.

Good advice. I have heard it said if you hang out with the pigs, you are going to get dirty. Don’t get caught up with negativity and gossip. Boundaries. Pray and lift those that are down and dirty with the pigs in life.

Peace to you.

June 23/21 – Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.

wordsThatSoak

You catch more bees with honey, not crap. From experience a gentle spirit can defuse a heated situation. Try it. Use a grace filled response and not pour gas filled words on a flammable situation. The outcome and your blood pressure will be much appreciated.

Peace to you.

Sometimes life dictates that you must go through the stump. With prayer God will bring you through and out the other side. You may have a few scratches and blisters but the courage and strength you’ve gained will be invaluable.

Peace to you.

June 9/21 – Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

One mouth two ears. A good listener is a gift of grace. I know it can be difficult to not give  your lip service with an opinion or advice, but most people want to be heard. It’s the best way to give grace and support. Not sure? Pray on it.

Peace to you.
