A Day Without Sarcasm?

I recently tried to go a whole day without saying or thinking anything sarcastic. My conclusion: I have a problem with too much sarcasm. Most times the sarcastic or facetious comments made are meant in jest, but frequently my children or my husband tend to become the target of my quick tongue. With every foolish act or question, ill behavior or wrongful decision, I tend to revert to sarcasm. Such habits initially present themselves as innocent and playful, but they always seems to find their way into becoming bad ones. Such as our strengths and our weaknesses are often the same. I enjoy being able to come up with something quick witted and I love to make people laugh and feel comfortable, but I first must learn to tame my tongue. My prayer and desire is to be a kinder, more uplifting, merciful, encouraging, and gracious wife, mother, and friend. To quote the Proverbs 31 woman.... "She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness." Prov. 31:26 I hope I can learn to bridle my tongue and save my sarcasm for special occasions :D, totally giving up my wit would be like leaving a part of myself behind. May I one day become that kind of woman that opens her mouth with wisdom. Thanks for allowing me to share my heart.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. " Phil. 4:8
