Lord, deliver me from the urge to open my mouth when I should shut it.
Give me wisdom to keep silent when silence is wise.
Remind me that not everything needs to be said, and that there are very few things that need to be said by me.
Unlikely words from a blogger, to be sure, but imagine what would spew forth from my keyboard if I didn’t consider this quote from one of my heroes. I wish I had time to tell you all the ways Elisabeth Elliot has influenced my life, but alas, it is late Sunday night and I am packing to leave for yet another trip to Seattle. I’m getting my blog in order before I go to bed.
Tomorrow I head to Seattle for a three day Science field trip with five moms and nine girls; I’ll give you a report when I return and my life is back in order.
Question: Do you have a hero? Leave a comment and tell us.
