Sweet as Honey

Caileigh and Collin have been learning about Proverbs during school this year ( We have been particularly paying attention to the ones about the tongue. The first one we memorized was "He who guards his mouth and his tongues keeps himself from calamity" Proverbs 21:23. We had fun acting out calamity, but this week we are learning, "Pleasant words are like honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." Proverbs 16:24. I had our vinegar bottle handy ( which is useful for whining and complaining) and a spoonful of honey. After trying the vinegar and talking about how unkind words, and disrespectful tones are like vinegar, we tried the honey. What a contrast! We all saw ( and tasted ) the difference our words and tones make. It has really made us ( and I mean us - I find myself judging whether my words are honey or vinegar) take the time to watch our words!
