So I found a website of bizarre and wacky holidays, and do you know what today is? Best Friend's Day!
It's also Name Your Poison Day.
That got me thinking about friendships, obviously. How the Bible says in the book of James that our tongues are full of deadly poison. Yikes.
Our words have power, friends - not just the written word, but the spoken as well. Are you using your words to uplift and edify your friends? Or are you more quick to spew poison when you get angry or defensive or feel misunderstood?
I think we're all guilty of both. We sincerely try for the first and all too often defaul to the latter.
Today let's make an effort together to put that poison away and focus on our friends and our loved ones, and on saying something NICE. :)
