oops from a woman's mouth - jill biden

Gosh darn if our mouths can't get us into trouble. Words have power. There is life and death in the power of the tongue. Women can use their tongues to tear down their homes or build them up. It's interesting that women are warned about gossip (Titus 2:3-5) and not men.

Often we're far too quick to say what we know, give an opinion about what we have NO clue about and use our words to whip our men into shape.

Our sweet new VP's wife, Jill Biden, just might have let something slip that she shouldn't have. Check out the chagrin on her dear husband's face. Take note of the color change on his face.

I have to admit - I've been guilty of the same thing. I've totally talked about things that I had no business talking about. I've given my opinion when I didn't know what in the world I was talking about. Have you?

Women(myself included) have got to watch our words. We can emasculate our husband's so quickly and then we wonder why they aren't protecting us, leading us and instead are a bunch of couch potatoes, game boy addicts and disengage from loving us.

In time, when a woman keeps using her words (angry, cutting words) to lay out her man - she'll shut him down and the fight to conquer and love will be gone.

talk about foot in mouth disease!!! I can only imagine either the commercial break or the green room conversation once they left the stage!

I had to chuckle when this happened yesterday.Then, I felt, oh man, can you imagine the dismay felt by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knowing this now? I bet she is turning over inside her head feelings of dismay and slight confusion.

I sure wish I had read this last night because I allowed myself to forget all about grace and keeping my mouth shut.

Wow... That's going to make life difficult for JB for a while.

I need to be reminding myself of this constantly.
