Genuine Words From the Heart

I took this picture with my little Kodak digital camera at Mt. Vernon

 Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart.
 ~John Wesley
We probably shouldn't always be genuine. Sometimes we are genuinely grumpy or genuinely too opinionated or genuinely bitter.  When those times arise, our best option is to remain quiet and seek the Lord. The book of Psalms has a nice way of reminding us where we should be in our walk with God:

            Psalm 51:12 Restore unto me the JOY of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

When our joy is restored, then our words can be uplifting, helpful, sweet, and genuine
