We have read and loved this book for a long time...since my oldest was a baby. It seems to be more relevant to us lately - what the Santos Times has been struggling through. It seems we've been passing out a lot of grey dots - so much so it is becoming a bad habit. Now we are trying to keep track of this by calling it what it is.
Every time one of the kids or I say a negative thing about someone or something, we call out "Grey Dot!" and we become aware of how we are using our words.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: ~ 1Peter 3:10
Charity...beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:7
Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. ~ Proverbs 10:12
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. ~ 1Peter 4:8
He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees.
