little tongue what you say, oh be careful little tongue what you say for the Father up above he is looking down in love, so be careful little tongue what you say. 
I learned this little song in Sunday School.  I still need to be reminded of this as an adult.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,

but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:29
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14

I am pretty sure that I have written about my quick tongue in this space before.  This verse from Ephesians was on the homepage of this morning.  I woke up late this morning and I don’t have an hour plus to sit, read, think and pray, blog, etc.  This verse spoke to me to day…probably for a reason.
Lord, please help me to watch my tongue today.  Help my words to be pleasing to you.  Be with those that need you in a special way today, especially those that are hurting and alone.
Things with my tongue are getting better – I think I just needed a reminder.  Often our words, said in innocence can still do harm.

Am I the only one that has to watch my tongue?!?!?
