In the Fall it's the new school supplies - all those fresh notebooks and boxes of crayons.
We have the ability by our words or actions to drop something into a situation that will change it completely.
So therefore let us continually pray
"Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight O Lord my strength and my redeemer." Psalms 19:14
because like the dye swirling in my cup, words, once distilled into a situation, cannot be taken back. They change everything.
So let your words today be ones in shades of praise, and affirmation, and joy coloring the environment around you with love.
