Stampin Sisters In Christ #69

Good Sunday Morning! Yep - It is that time again for SSIC Challenge. This week my sweet sister Patti is the host and she has chosen the verse:


Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. ~Ephesians 4:29 NLT. 

Her challenge: "A way with words", create a card or project that will compliment, encourage or cheer someone in need of uplifting.

Our Sponsor this week is "Simeon Say's".

Insight: This sounds like a good verse but is not always easy to do! We have a tendency to complain, bicker. We have to be right in what we say so we always try to get in the last word. But this edifies no one, is useful to no one. Our attitudes does not bring out the righteousness of Christ in us, let along shining our light for others to see Christ and to be touched by Him through us. Proverbs 18:21 ( one I must repeat often) say's, The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.We will bear the fruit of our words, to speak words of encouragement brings joy and peace to both parties, to speak ill or in anger  does not bring joy or peace to anyone. Let us remember to watch the fruit of our lips. WORDS..

Make sure you go and check out what my other sisters have to share this morning over at SSIC.
