The Wily Will and Won't of Words





Sometimes those words we’d like to say
Get all knotted within,
Our thoughts all muddled until we
Don’t know where to begin
But, on the other hand, sometimes
Without hesitancy
The words that we should never speak
Slip out so easily

...and the little lad squirmed on that chair growing harder by the minute,
wishing with all his darling five-year-old heart that he could have those naughty words back, so he could run and play. 
We chatted about how it is; when words slip out there is nothing we can do to get them back, so we should think first, then talk.

Taming the Tongue
But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.…James 3:8-10
