Thanksgiving past

Thanksgiving is past and left overs are abundant.  Hopefully each of us have a few more precious memories to tuck in our souls.   Many will have a few old wounds slightly opened or at least touched.


I go again to Proverbs for the wisdom I so desperately need.

Family gathering times can be times of talking about others.

Proverbs 18:8  The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.

That’s the problem.  Those words can wound deeply and not be forgotten

Proverbs 16:21  The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.


To be silent and let ones heart listen to God for His wisdom is a sure way for the words that follow to be worth speaking.
