Clean Up The Environment...



















Here I am at the Public Library ...
 And thinking where are the comforts of my home and my sweet familiar lap top?

Mr. Sony called and they hope to send out my computer today,
 I was told that I needed a new hard drive, and software.

I think I am in the teen area of our library I can hear music coming from all their headphones!!
 The music makes me think of the title of my blog that I was wanting to use:
"Clean Up The Environment"

 Dirt and grime or pollution can come in many forms,
 the one I want to speak of today is air pollution.
 Not the kind you would normally think of,
 this kind of air pollution has to do with what we say and how we speak.
 Our words can be "verbal pollution".
 Did you ever notice when you're walking through the grocery store,
 there is often some mom screaming at Johnny to "shut your#***#*##***mouth".
 And of course her screaming and her words
 are way worse to listen to than Johnny's screaming.
 I usually shudder whenever I hear a mother speaking word curses to her children.
 I know  most of us are not guilty of speaking this way to our loved ones,
 but often we allow negative talk or gossip to flow through the airwaves out of our mouths.
 I love the scripture that says
: Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
 but what is good for necessary edification. -Ephesians 4:29

I was reading in my devotional today,
 Which suggested taking the challenge of avoiding critical words for a whole week.
 Those who participated were surprised to find out how little they spoke!
 As they continued the experiment, they actually had to relearn conversation skills
. Scary, Huh?
 It might be something worthwhile to try ourselves and see how we do.

"What! Never speak one evil word, Or rash, or idle, or unkind!
O how shall I, most gracious Lord,
This mark of true perfection find? -Wesley"

Hope to have my laptop back soon and blogging as usual.
 I can think better when rap music is not thumping through the headphones into the airwaves behind me.
 Many blessings until next time.

Living From Glory To Glory

  1. Wow, I love this challenge, Again you have blessed me with your words dear Roxy. Love reading your thoughts and prayers.

    I do agree with u about what comes out of our mouths. It is something that I know grieves the Lord. I hope and pray that He makes my mouth clean.

    I am anxiously awaiting your computer's arrival home to you. I am always checking your blog, and I squealed when I saw you updated today.

    Love you so much.
