As promised...

I love how it turned out, don't you?  It came within a few days of this post but I forgot I had promised to post it.  We had a very positive family meeting at dinner one night to explain that this is one of our family's guiding verses.  We had an impromptu game of deciphering "harmful words" from "words that will help others become stronger."  We decided that when one of us uses harmful words, we would gently remind the person and suggest they pray and ask God help them to use words that make others stronger.  It's been a useful tool.  We are still working on accepting when we are reminded to do this.  The kids often don't want to receive the correction.  It can be frustrating but I have to remind myself that this "training them up" is a marathon not a sprint, right?
