“There are some people who have the quality of richness and joy in them and they communicate it to everything they touch. It is first of all a physical quality; then it is a quality of the spirit.” Thomas Wolf

Conversations are powerful. The mouth can draw out good positive things filled with hope and good faith. People come together to communicate, share knowledge, and share one another’s stories. Through the use of words we create an understanding of the world.

We have more satisfying relationships through conversations.

Concerning the great power and authority in words the mouth can be used to bring blessings or destruction. Our mouths can hurt, break down and depress or heal, restore and uplift. Although we try to say things that are right and pleasing sometimes they come out harsh and hard causing bad feelings. When pressure mounts the mouth flies open and we speak careless words.

We must learn to discipline our mouths and take responsibility for what comes out of them. We must grow in self- control and discipline of mouth. Control and the taming the tongue should be our goal. Think before we speak/say the right words with right tone or perhaps not speak at all.

Keeping watch over the door of my lips and mouth has been a lifelong work. We are looking for good and helpful, gracious and kind words.

Our words give expression to what we think feel, think, want and the purpose of our heart. The organizations at 15 Lund Road in Saco invite you to join in the healthy fun and energizing sports.
