Brevity is wit, silence is golden. One of the great joys is to sit with your spouse in peace and look at the beauty that surrounds you and the beauty graven upon their face.

We are to be holy, and then what is holy will be spoken from us: but we are unable to be holy. The only justification we have is that we proclaim Christ is Lord over all, and live by the words he has written.

Matthew 12:33-37

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. 35 The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. 36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
