Are you like me, eager to grab a toothbrush and tackle 'morning mouth'? A local dentist once spoke at our church about the way God had moved in his life. As he concluded, he said with a smile, "Every day do two important things: floss — and pray." His audience laughed but I never forgot his words. As you floss and brush your teeth, prayerfully ask for the grace to use your mouth in ways that reflect God, by speaking only words of love in the coming day.
