Are you familiar with this term?
It has been my intent lately to make a more concerted effort to be careful about any negative comments - or thoughts … about anything …or anybody.
Sometimes it is my tendency to over-analyze conversations and the words I speak.The proverb about words and apples of gold came to mind, so I Googled the phrase. (Somehow my search produced an image of road apples!) I never heard of road apples before, but as I thought about it ...
Do you ever just wish you could have a redo on something you said?
Road apples are unattractive and smelly.
Those aren't the kind of words I want to leave behind
to be cleaned up later.
I want my words to be lovely and sweet.
Apples of gold glow.
is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl.
Proverbs 25:11 NCV
