two things to remember in life take care of your thoughts when you’re alone, and your words when you’re with people.

i read this quote a few days back and really liked it. so, i am sharing it. and the pictures really have nothing to do with the quote but, i am sharing them too. just a few snaps from life lately.

it is so important to keep watch over our thought life, isn't it? those quiet or dark or lonely places. they can be breeding grounds. this was a great reminder for me to "take every thought captive to obey Christ". thinking about what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, praiseworthy. keeping my mind focused on the right things. not allowing my thoughts to stray into distractive places. not allowing my mind to mislead me.

and then, to be careful with our words when we are with others. letting our words be savory and appealing and uplifting. not tearing others down or cutting into them. using words to build and buoy and infuse life and truth and hope. being gracious and graceful in our speech. encouraging one another. sweet and gentle.

here's to being mindful of our inner dialogue and external conversations.
