My blogger-friend Corrie shared this bible verse with me when commenting on the "Is Shouting The New Spanking" post.
Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Could there be anything more true?
I like to think I'm a kind, nice, forgiving, loving person. I like to think this. But sometimes, what comes out of my mouth...
... and to the ears of the people I love the most. Or need my love the most.
When my words have themes of self-centeredness, judgmentalness, sarcasm, bitterness, and criticism, I fear for what is in my heart.
So, to change the words, I suppose one must look into the heart.
I just wish I wasn't so afraid of what I might find in there.
