The mouth only speaks what is in the heart.
Ugly words -> ugliness in the heart
Kind words -> kindness in the heart
Speech is improved by guarding the heart and feeding it Scripture. I can talk about OTK boots all day – why – because I spend time looking them up.
Note to self -> more private time in the word with God!

My eldest sister once told me ‘just get it in there – and the rest will work itself out.’ She’s wise like that…and a huge blessing to me. Short phrases stick and become actionable goals. Distill it down so I can stay on task and target!
