“When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn't said afterward. There's nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in--that's stronger. It's a good thing not to answer your enemies.”
~ Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
When a woman is able to control her words, she is offering her companions a glimpse of Christ. When she guards her mouth, her audience is given a portrait of the Prince of Peace. When she speaks in gentle tones though her heart is in turmoil, she has starved the nature of self and nurtured a place for the Lord to shine. She will be blessed for she is a peacemaker...
"Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue
keepeth his soul from troubles."
~ Proverbs 21:23
Let us ask daily for the strength to guard our tongues for blessings will abound!
