"Law of Kindness" ~ A Homemaker's Victory



For the very first time, she kept her lips from moving...

It took all her strength for she had plenty to say. The careless comment her husband made brought a rush of red into her cheeks and with it, plenty of ammunition. She was exhausted, it had been a demanding day. But, "her way" of handling situations never went well. She was determined to cleave to the Scriptures and give that "soft answer".

So, not trusting her words, she simply smiled…

How the angels must have rejoiced at her triumph!

  2. What a wonderful post, Jes. Thank you for sharing! Like the verse from Proverbs 15 says, "A soft answer turneth away wrath." Oh what a reminder and may the things I say be honoring to the Lord.

    Have a blessed week!

    Hugs to you!
