When In Doubt Shut Your Mouth

I love to talk.

Maybe I've mentioned that before.

However, there are times when it's better to be quiet.

Yes, this post actually has a connection to Friday's post.

The hearing went pretty much exactly as we expected.

Essentially nothing has changed for now.

There are a few little monkey wrenches that have been thrown into the case.

I could worry.........

But I've decided not to.

Back to the subject at hand........or mouth.

Right before the hearing--a member of my foster children's birth family talked to me.

Actually she asked me one question.

I could have blabbed all sorts of information at her.

Some of it useful--most of it not.

I chose instead to simply answer her question.

I have thought of a hundred different things I could have said, but I doubt they would have improved the situation.

The relationship between foster parents, and birth parents is strained at best.

I think keeping my mouth shut was the right thing to do.

Thank you so much for all your prayers!!


  1. Good job! Isn't it wonderful when the Holy Spirit whispers in your ear. I am still learning to listen better....

  2. eeeek. Monkey wrenches. I hope everything works out ok for you and your family!

  3. I hope things go well! I hear you on this one....there are many times, I should have kept it simple and said too much. I am sure you made the right decision. :-)

  4. Thinking of you! And I'm totally with you in learning when I should keep my mouth shut -which is usually far more often then I do!


Please comment I love hearing from you!
