Celebrate Controlling My Tongue


Sometimes, not saying anything is the best answer. You see, silence can never be misquoted.
~ Unknown Author ~

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
~ 1 Peter 3:8-11~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well in your world. (smile) Been busy at the circus and just returned from a TDY trip.


I celebrate controlling my tongue. No complaining when I was assigned the last seat on the plane.

No nasty response when security randomly selected me to be padded down in front of everybody.

No entertaining rhetoric when I got the middle seat with no leg room and a crying baby near my ear.

Silence is powerful, when we realize most times, no response is required. Now that’s wisdom from above.

Praise The Lord for self-control and understanding controlling the tongue is a process.

Thank God for his grace and faith, at the end, of the day, I’m blessed, smiling and still standing.

Abundant blessing and enjoy your weekend!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)
