Just wanted to share that I feel like a very fortunate woman being involved with Royce -- and looking forward to being his wife. I was having my quiet time this morning and reading in Proverbs and came across the following words, "It is a wise man who listens and does not speak, for when he does speak others will listen and weigh his words as wisdom." I felt like I was reading a description of Royce. As you know, Royce has been through some troubling times with our business -- but he has mostly listened -- patiently I might add. When he has chosen to speak, I have marveled at the wisdom that has come out of his mouth. I caught this picture of him while he was in the middle of "one of THOSE" phone calls. You can tell from him face that he is very serious...but you will notice his mouth is closed...he is just listening -- not defending -- not arguing -- not trying to persuade...just listening. I love that about him. You see, I have a disease -- it is called ETCMMCOMM. Hard to pronounce I know but it stands for Everything That Crosses My Mind Comes Out My Mouth. Horrible disease. I am always having to go back and apologize for stuff...wishing that I had thought just ONE more second about it before I said it...so anyway -- now you know what I was studying in my quiet time this morning...Keeping Watch Over My Mouth -- and praising God that I am engaged to a Wise Man.
Hope you have a great day.
