Harrison's little gurgles and squawks have starting taking on recognizable consonant and vowel combinations. That is right people! We have words! Ok, not really- he has no clue what he is saying, but the little words just melt us! Who would have thought "Da-Da" could squeeze your heart so much, that "mum-mum" would make your whole day miraculous!
As Harrison tries out his new words, as we are easily impacted by each one, we have been reminded what a force words truly are! They are mighty things. What a responsibility we have to train Harrison to use his words for God's glory. Our words are leaving an impression on Harrison as much as his words are leaving on us. May our speech be pleasant. What words are you impacting other with?

always be kind and pleasant so you will be able to answer everyone in the way
you should." Colossians 4:4-6
