Ain't that the truth! Most of us would do well to keep still, keep quiet, start listening!

Great counsel from God's Word, Cary Jo!

Dear Joanne
This is a great reminder that our words should be few and thought through before we speak, thanks!

Love this, Caryjo! I have recently been increasing my practice of... silence. And I am finding it a very empowering thing. I have no idea just how many fusses, frets, arguments, misunderstandings, and entanglements this has prevented, but I'm sure it must be a goodly number. Practicing this is also enabling me to measure and weigh the words I do speak, realizing that usually it's really true that less is more (effective).
Great picture, great wisdom. Thanks.

Love this photo/scripture pairing. Silent, pondering gull giving substance to Proverb's wisdom.

Oh, so true! I'm always amazed how much more God does when I just keep my mouth shut and step out of his way. Nice photoe, CaryJo!

Sometimes we can talk just to talk, can't we? It is so much wiser to stop and listen to God before we speak! Love this picture!

Blessings, Joan
