Approaching family time

Dear Readers,

We will most, or all, be visiting with family soon.  In the past couple of weeks I have continued to face challenges to hold my words, be quiet, and allow the other to speak and share.  In certain places I have spoken very little.  Sometimes this is because I feel unprepared to say anything helpful to the other.  I find that the LORD is stopping me in the process of my thoughts, to ask if certain things I know are profitable for the other.  Most of the time this is my dear husband.  He would handle hearing things that are unhelpful through Christ, either immediately or after awhile.  So would most of my contacts.  However, if I am sharing news that I learned even at an inner city ministry, do I need to burden him with it?  Is it helpful for him to know?  Is he able to do anything about it?  Some things I am to process directly with the Lord.  “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”  James 1:19-20
