Mouth-control

 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, 
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
Prov.16:24

😊
 
Swallow hard and bite your/my tongue
Harsh words swift-spewed live so long
Breathe a prayer and count to ten
We all need grace now and then 
And soon you/I will be so glad
For sharp replies left unsaid
Where a bit of mouth-control 
Is like sweetness to the soul
