  2. Pause....love this word and here lately I have had to do just that Deb. With words. I've had to stop and pause and rethink what I was going to say. Not because I forgot what I wanted to say...but because I remembered what I was going to say.....and I needed to pause before saying! Praise the Lord that I did too or I would have said something I would have regretted. Just keeping it real this morning sister. God knew I needed to see this post first thing this morning. Thanks for sharing like you do. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Confession: I seem to never pause long enough before I take action. Something I really need to pray about and work on! Hope your day is happy and blessed.

  5. A good word! I am learning, as I get older, to pause and calm myself before reacting in anger.

  7. My goodness, Mrs Deb! Our posts today are once again along the same theme! God must be working on some similar things in us right now. :)

  8. The "pause that refreshes"...this was that...thank you! I am trying to remember to pause before speaking, before acting, before jumping to conclusions...etc. This is a good reminder. Thank you.
