March 27, Today’s thought – Gossip

P1000038One morning we got up early to watch the balloons rise at sunrise in Reno, NV

Good Morning

It always starts with one word

First, somebody told it,

Then the room couldn’t hold it,

So the busy tongues rolled it

Till they got it outside.

Then the crowd came across it,

And never once lost it,

But tossed it and tossed it,

Till it grew long and wide.

This lie brought forth others,

Dark sisters and brothers,

And fathers and mothers–

A terrible crew.

And while headlong they hurried,

The people they flurried,

And troubled and worried,

As lies always do.

And so evil-bodied,

This monster lay goaded,

Till at last it exploded

In smoke and in shame.

Then from mud and from mire

The pieces flew higher,

And hit the sad victim

And killed a good name.

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
Incline not my heart to any evil thing,
to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity:
and let me not eat of their dainties. Psalm 141:3-4

Set a watch, Oh Lord . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
