I like it.
So let's keep going.
First of all, we've added two more to the list of WorthLESS words when it comes to secrets:
MARGARET: "Come over here . . ." (so no one else can hear)
ABBY: "It's just a SMALL secret."
If you hear or say those words, that's a WARNING that a secret is about to be shared that shouldn't be.
Okay, so we stop saying and listening to our list of Warning words (see yesterday's post). Right. Sometimes that's like saying, "Stop breathing." It helps to have WorthWHILE words to say instead. You've actually already started that list:
"A secret is a secret."
"I won't take any more secrets."
Your job today is to add as many worthWHILE words, phrases, sentences to that list as you can. Secrets are hard to keep -- and sometimes hard to tell when we need to -- and we need to have plenty of answers at the ready so we don't have to stop and think, "What do I say now?"
Don't forget the Wall of Fame challenge (that's in yesterday's post, too). Oh, and yes, ABBY, you were right about the picture of Maeryn in her Burger King crown, pretending she could see when she clearly couldn't. At one point she grinned and said, "Who turned out the lights?" Yeah, AMELIA, she is so stinkin' adorable."
So are you, my mini-women.
"Those who guard their mouths preserve their lives." (Proverbs 13: 3, NRSV)
Dear God, please fill our minds with worthWHILE words today, especially when it come to secrets. And please don't just let us KNOW them -- please help us to SAY them when we need to. We can't guard our mouths without you guiding us like the Amazing Dad you are.
