I started doing devotional again, I had stopped for a while, b/c like, sleeping in late, you don't wanna spend more time in your room, you wanna go eat... and staying up late to watch movies or go skinny dipping in hartwell, you are already pooped from staying up you wanna go to bed. Anyway, I started doing them again today and you wanna know what it said? It said: "Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Incline my heart away from any evil, from busying myself with wicked deeds in the company of evildoers. Let them not be my compainions ... ... Let a good person rebuke me in kindness, but let the old of the wicked never anoint my head.* And it hit my like a pound or so of brinks, (like I said, a ton would squash me into oblivion) because I'd been loose with my lips many many times in the past bit. So, I was like, Okay! Okay... You're right, of course. You always are! Anyway, it just reminded me how slacking off on your prayer life... you don't really notice it, you know, but it's so berry berry important



*From the Psalms, the devotional book "You Shall Not Want"*
