God has much to say to me about the way I speak, my tone and the appropriate use of speech for love and blessing. Very early in my discipleship a friend directed me to the book of James. Knowing how much I love the gift of gab, my heart was pricked, and I began to take seriously the many reproofs regarding an uncontrolled tongue.
My most vivid memory of sharing ministry time with Chloe is that she carried a pocket-sized artist pad of paper and an artist's pencil. She sat quietly on a stool in the dressing room crowded with more flesh than clothing and sketched a picture of God's love. There was a specific woman she felt Holy Spirit was guiding her to bless with her picture.
