Sometimes you just need to shut up

Well isn't that a catchy title??

Today has just been one of those days when it seems like nothing is going the way it should. What happens most of the time when I have these days,and maybe you too, is that I don't want to say anything "nice". I want to grumble and murmur and complain and gripe and and and... that's when I am reminded of the many times that Proverbs tells us "even fools seem wise if they keep their mouths shut "

I am also remindEd of my momma telling me " if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". You probably heard that phrase too!

We will have days like I had today, it's life but we can choose to POWER DOWN our mouths ( our responses and words and opinions) and just keep quiet. We will seem wiser and really be wiser for doing so.

THEN We choose to praise the Lord for anything and everything! That's the power we have through the Holy Spirit!

Take heart--you got this girl!
