Consider the dove - A symbol of the Holy Spirit and God, it is a bird of purity and wholesomeness. Remember how Noah opened the door from the ark and sent out a dove in search of land? The dove returned the first time with no sign of dry land, although the next time he sent forth the dove it returned with an olive leaf, so Noah knew the waters were no more. God was with Noah. If God wasn’t, the dove wouldn’t have returned to the ark. Today the dove symbolizes that the Love of the Father is always with us. God is constantly watching over us at all times of our life. When you are in time of need, trouble, misery, perhaps perplexed, or even frightened all you have to do is pray- you will draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you. So the next time you see a dove, remember that God will ALWAYS be with you every step of your way!

You're probably wondering what exactly I'm trying to get at here. Well, onto the story. Last week during our trip, Casidy, my sister said to Samantha, "Samantha you have a large nose." My Mom replied, "Casidy remember this"I always watch the words I say to keep them soft and sweet because I never know from day to day which ones I'll have to eat."
Ooooh, ouch. Remember this? "which ones I'll have to eat"
Last night, Casidy was asked numerous times by my Mother & Father to please do the dishes. Casidy said, "No I don't have to." So off she marched out the front door (slamming it) She set up her golfing net and was going to practice her swinging. There she is happily golfing and having the greatest time... All of a sudden "smack" went the golf ball into the net, and hit the side fencepost, then nailed Casidy right in the.... can you guess? Remember those words she said earlier in the week? "Samantha you have a large nose." Here she comes screaming in the house - blood literally is EVERYWHERE. Mom and Dad tries to get the bleeding to stop. Mom said, "Steve, I believe she broke here nose." & "Start the car." It took 20 minutes to stop the bleeding and after waiting a good hour in the emergency room, she finally got in. Yes, Casidy does have a broken nose. Thank the Lord it wasn't a really "bad" break.
Anyways, it is a great example for all of us to learn and too grow from. In James 3:6 it says "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue amongst our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." So, please everyone remember to watch the words you say! In just an second it can strike you.
Note: this isn't to criticize or too judge Casidy, I'm simply giving this as an example...
I hope you all have a great evening!
