Gentle Words

"Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit." Proverbs 15:4

Gentle words begin with listening. Gentle words come from a heart that is selfless. Gentle words come from a heart full of love for others and the condition of their hearts. 

When harsh words are spoken, the pain lasts and lingers within our hearts. Harsh words damage others. The crush/blow of harsh words reveal a truth and the condition of our hearts. 

Speak life. Speak in love. Be prayerful before you speak. Think of the impact your words will have on others before you speak them. 

The Laughter

It's this unexplainable laughter that fills the air, when they talk. 

He has a way to make them giggle like no one else. 

The loudness of their laugh sets off a particular aroma that fills every inch of our home with joy. 

It literally clears out any frustrations, any anger, any sadness. 

Daddy's way of bringing joy into the lives of our boys is irreplaceable, unexplainable, and overwhelmingly amazing. 

Jesus does all of that plus more. Open your ears to hear the laughter and goodness of Christ.
