I'm a little distracted. The bathroom is next to my office. The voice of a four year old singing VERY loudly is punching its way through the wall and into my ears. It's quite a catchy tune. I don't know if it's an original or not!
Have you ever thought about how wonderful it is to be able to hear? Your child's voice, the sound of wind in the trees, music, laughter, all wonderful sounds.
Sound can also be horrible. Parents screaming at one another. A child being verbally abused. Unkind words said about another person.
What do people hear when they are around you? Does what they hear bring laughter, joy, encouragement? Or, do they hear negative, abusive, bitter words that tear down instead of building up. Hopefully, people will hear things from our lips that bring blessings.
Hoping what others hear when I speak is a blessing to their lives, Gloria
