If you can't say something nice




I am a true Southern Belle...I even went to charm school when I was a preteen..I learned about manners and being a lady..it is something that is so ingrained in me that it has become second nature. it goes along so well with being a Christian woman...being mannerly..and being kind to one another...it seems I have had a rash of unkind remarks aimed at me over the last 6 months..I am sure I am not the only one this has happened to...I thought this little video was appropriate this morning...and yes, there are ALWAYS exceptions but this is on my heart for this morning...I don't believe it is ok to just say whatever comes into your brain.. ...we need to filter our words through love and kindness...and relinquish the need to control anybody else..I am committed to being a woman that is kind and loving..and I encourage you to be the same..

So here I am this morning, hoping to spread a little kindness and encouragement..
and thankfulness for you my readers. and all of your kindnesses shown towards me..

  1. I'm right there with you! Our culture encourages us to just "speak your mind" and "let it all hang out" but that usually just ends up with everyone's feelings hurt! The Bible encourages us to speak only things that are uplifting ... those rabbits have the right idea :)
