Word's Do Matter

Word's do matter...           This picture caught my attention quickly but beyond the concern for people who are the victim of verbal abuse.  (Don't get me wrong this is a serious issue and I am saddened by their pain) I was reminded of the power we have in our tongue.  It made me think of times where I was diligent to change my negative thinking and claim healing and life but there are many times where I fall victim to the enemy in my thinking and speak death rather then life.  

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.  Proverbs 18:21

Are you using your words to encourage and bring life or are you bringing death and discouragement?  I mean really think about the things you are saying.  Such as speaking illness into our bodies rather then speaking health and healing, or speaking bad about our husband instead of lifting him up.  Talking bad or gossip about a friend or family rather then speaking life into them.  It is so common for us to allow the enemy to win this battle and make us think we are defeated or not worthy but we need to stop that thinking and remember who we are in CHRIST!  "I AM MORE THEN A CONQUEROR!  So no more saying, "I'm sick" "Your killing me" "I am hormonal" (yep that has been my words lately...preaching to myself here)  "I'm depressed" "your dumb" or how about "my kids are naughty" my kids are rude" "my kids don't listen" or how about "my husband is ______"  

If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?  1John 4:20
Lets try to remember to LOVE more like CHRIST! 

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life. Prov. 15:4

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Pro 12:18

Have you ever wondered who started the saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me."  This is just not true and very un-biblical.                   So how do we start speaking life rather then death?  First, get in the WORD and second think before you speak!  :)  Would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!  :)

So, so true! I've often thought that bones can heal, but words go far deeper and leave scars that at times no one can see.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
