Making Your Home A Haven Week 2~Soft Music

Joining in on this with Courtney 

This week’s challenge:
Play soft music everyday in your home. Choose worship, classical or another form of peaceful music that the family enjoys. I’ll be playing Christmas music! Focus on using peaceful words and maintaining peaceful relationships. Work on gentleness this week.
I love this quote that Courtney posted 
Edith Shaefer says “There is a charm in making music together which not only stimulates interest and creativity, but which breaks through whining and fussing and clears the atmosphere.”
 Our daughter E'lyse has been play hymns on the piano lately and it is so beautiful to hear them throughout the house. I enjoy playing the sound track to Little Women and songs from Mindy Gledhill. I am now starting to play Christmas music and church CD's to lift and lighten the mood in the house. 
 When I am working at the spa I am hearing soft peaceful music as I give massages to clients. 
Courtney posted these scriptures to help us out this week. Proverbs is full of wonderful guidance in out days.
Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning.” Proverbs 10:13
Pursue discernment.
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.” Proverbs 10:19
Hold your tongue.
A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue.” Proverbs 11:12
Hold your tongue.
A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.” Proverbs 12:16
Overlook insults.
Reckless words pierce like a sword but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18
Use your tongue to bring healing.
He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.” Proverbs 13:3
Guard your lips.
“A quick tempered man does foolish things.” Proverbs 14:17
Be slow to anger.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh words stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1
Give gentle answers.
“A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.” Proverbs 17:27
Use restraint.
These are all things that I will be working on. Lighting my candle, listening to beautiful music and praying for guidance and support for my weaknesses.  
Hugs, Bobbi Jo
