Chatterbox

Liars secretly hoard hatred;
fools openly spread slander.

The more talk, the less truth;
the wise measure their words.

The speech of a good person is worth waiting for;
the blabber of the wicked is worthless.

The talk of a good person is rich fare for many,
but chatterboxes die of an empty heart.
- Proverbs 10:18-21 {The Message}

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 ...

Linda
