  1. Denise,
    I like the idea of being “a bringer of kind words”. When I leave this world, I hope to be remembered as someone who brought kind words. Being on the receiving end of extremely harsh words, I know how much damage they can do. Likewise, being the recipient of kind words myself…they are like an agent of healing – a balm to my soul. May God give me the power and self-control to be intentional about what comes out of my mouth. Great reminder this morning!

  2. Thank-you for posting this Denise,
    Life would be so much sweeter if everyone followed this.

    I hope everyone has a blessed Sunday overflowing with kindness.


  3. Denise,
    I have been praying for God to put His hand over my mouth and help me to soften the words I use. I want to be remembered as a sweet, healthy, salt & light word smith to the world! I want them to hear Jesus & know that I care! I would love to be a healing balm to someone by my kind sweet words I use!
    Blessings 🙂

  4. This is so timely! Having a hard week in ministry with some conversations…harsh words quickly close my heart up. I’m okay with tough honest words but feeling attacked is not my favorite :). Thanks for reminding me to share in the way I want to be spoken too!
