Wednesday Words

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

I am really working on positive communication. I want to build others up with what I say. I want to be an encouragement. I want to focus on the positive instead of the negative. I want to encourage my spouse. I also want to find creative ways to encourage others from my spot as a stay at home mom. I am focusing on this. So far, the focus is mostly causing me to recognize when I mess up. Still, I know being aware is the first step.

Jane Anne~ I love this! I need to do the same thing in my home, too.

Did you design this button, or did you find it somewhere?

I may use it next week, if you don't mind . . .

Praying for success for both of us.

Have a blessed day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gentle yet effective reminder to use my words to build my children and spouse up and NOT tear them down.

I found the flower clipart online and then I doctored it (added the words). Feel free to use it. I would love to hear what inspires you!
