  1. Love your blog, as always, and enjoyed your article at Dabbling Mum. You go girl!! Keep writing for the King!

    Hugs from a fellow scribe,

  2. I had a wonderful dad. One day, however, when I tripped over the vacuum cleaner, my dad chuckled and called me "Clumsy". ( 11 yr. old girl, clumsy?) He was teasing, but it hit at a sensitive time, I guess, because I still remember the ache it gave me. Our words are, indeed, powerful, and they really can live forever. It's my good fortune to have many positive memories to heavily outweigh the goof-ups. Your "Swearing Off Swearing" says it so well...our words carry the need for great care.

  3. Sending warm and cozy greetings for a beautiful season, filled with His love and joy--now, and all through the New Year.
