Gentle thought for the day...

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.



OK, so I need to remember the above at a church committee meeting this morning. To approve a votive stand or not approve it...That is the question. Some folks are in favor and some are against it. Some want a wooden stand; some want metal.


We'll see what the committee says. Oy...and this isn't the only issue to be discussed. There's no business like church business!

Oh boy, it is Monday in Mayberry and a new week begins! Lord, please watch over my head, my heart, and my mouth. Amen.

Wood or metal? Wow, sounds like an issue that needs to really be debated. You know like the health care mess. Just saying.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug. :)

I have the same problem with the second part of that verse! Some day I will learn to keep my big mouth shut ... maybe!

Good providence at the meeting today; hope that everything works out to the best and amicably!
