All the Keys to Your Heart

'Keep vigilant watch over your heart:
that's where life starts.
Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth;
avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.
Keep your eyes straight ahead;
ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step,
and the road will stretch out smooth before you.

Look neither right nor left;
leave evil in the dust'
- Proverbs 4:23-27 {The Message}.

Here's a note from a slanderer who knows firsthand what wounding banter,
little white lies, and bruising, assassinating gossip is all about  ...

  1. The Message really tells it like it is doesn't it!

  2. I'm reading through the Bible
    chronologically with this fresh translation ... it's been refreshing and thought-provoking.

    Thanks for stopping in, Elizabeth!

  3. Everyday life struggles we face... usually when we open our mouth OR, in my case, NOT opening my mouth, but people laugh and tell me they could read it on my face. But, with the years of the Lord in my heart and the grace poured on me, I'm doing better. Trusting HIM, and not me, is a "good thing."

  4. OH yes ... He is so trustworthy, never fails, knows when to speak, knows when to act!

    I'm so thankful that He has it all in His most capable hands!

    Thanks Caryjo ...


Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
