Let My Words Be Few

Sthill, er, still sore. But only on one side, so chewing should be somewhat more bearable today. It was so painful yesterday to eat, swallow, even talk, so that I didn’t do much of any of these. I was thinking how during this time I wouldn’t want to speak- if I had to say something, I needed it to count, and to do it in as few words as possible. Now, why I don’t approach life this way all the time, I don’t know. It would bless anyone I came in contact with, to only hear the truth in its beautiful simplicity, without all the fluff and jokes and idle talk. I’m all for kidding around sometimes, but I know I have thrown away a lot of words, when it should be my goal to conserve. Aunt Charley told a story about a talkative little girl being warned that she only had so many words and when she used them all up, she would die. That shut her up. But seriously, we all should be talking (or not talking) that way.
New Year’s Resolution #1: Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2
