Appropriate Talk ~

Are our words fitly spoken? Do we give soft answers? Are our words sweet to the soul, from the heart, and life giving?
Or are our words filled with anger, or do they bring death to relationships? Are our words corrupt or defile people? Do they bring our lives to ruin?
Words created the entire universe. Words are so powerful. They never go away. They remain. We can't retract them. They are out there accomplishing what we sent them to do. What are our words accomplishing? Are we spreading the happy with our words? Let's do! What do ya say? Let's let it be said of us that our talk is happy talk!!
Happy Monday 😊
