In silence

13 Jun

I swear occasionally (you will hear mutterings of “bugger, bugger!!!” from my corner of the office, especially if I can’t seem to follow my own trains of thought!)!  It takes a lot out of me (as I feel terribly guilty when I swear—can’t help it, I was brought up to think swearing is not the done thing), but I bite my tongue most of the time (I say most because there are days when I simply cannot take it!).  But I hope that I’m mostly silent (not suffering…!), even when I am stressed.  Fingers crossed and tongue bitten!

I think Philippians 4:8 should be my mantra in these situations:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. (New International Version)
