Note to Self: hush!

From my devotional, this morning:

Ephesians 4:29 (Amplified Bible)
29Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God's favor) to those who hear it.


Ephesians 4:29 (The Message)
29Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.

And after my day yesterday, which included a raised voice, and discouraging words, I WILL be obedient to the Word today.

UPDATE: Today went pretty well. Amazing what a little conviction will do, and focusing on God's Word throughout the day ALWAYS works wonders.

Please continue to pray for Jon & Emily, and the baby. Emily was taken by ambulance to the Twin Cities last night as she was having contractions, but didn't know it until the local doc saw her to monitor the baby. Emily had been doing kick counts but wasn't noticing any baby movements, so off to the local hospital they went, only to be directed to the Cities. The last update I heard was this morning. The doctors have stabilized Emily, and we are in a holding pattern.
