I have two ears and one mouth and I use them in that order.
Sometimes you may not have the right words to say, but that ability to listen..just be a kind ear..is sometimes all you need to do.
I do things, hoping that maybe..one day, someone will remember what I did for them and in turn do it for someone else..kind of like paying something forward if you will.
I do things with no intentions of expecting anything back in return because that is not how I was brought up.
I was always told it’s always better to listen that to speak, to give than to receive and to love instead of hate..and those words that I constantly heard have resonated with me and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve understood the weight behind them.
Nobody is perfect.
I’m not perfect, and I have never claimed to be.
I pursue being Christlike before all else, and whatever else comes in addition to that is a bonus.
I like to set an example so my actions speak louder than my words and ensure that anything that isn’t is few and far between.
I choose to use my two ears to listen before I use my one mouth to speak.
