Watch Your mouth

When I was a little girl, seems like I was always hearing my mom say that.
"You'd better watch your mouth, ole girl!" she'd say. There was always a
good reason for it, too.

Today, not too many people tell me to watch my mouth, but this morning, the
Word did. I was reading my Bible and came across a couple of verses that I
want to share with you.

In 2 Corinthians, chapter 2 verses 1 and 2 it says, and I quote the King
James 1611, "But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again
to you in heaviness. For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me
glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?" Now, Paul isn't talking about
talking, but he could have been. If I say or write something that brings you
down, then who will be there to lift me up, except the one who was brought
down? Am I making sense?

A few days ago, I posted a blog that while true, is a bit depressing. My
intention was not to bring anyone down, but it seems that is just what has
happened. For that, friends, I am so very sorry. From now on, I'll try not
to write or say anything that could bring you down. It is our job as
Christian sisters and brothers to uplift one another. As the old saying
goes, "If you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at
all."

Y'all pray for me, and I'll pray for y'all.
