Sweet Words are like Honey

Honey Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble!IMG_9644

This is my final honey recipe and it’s DESSERT!

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. ~Proverbs 16:24

I hope you will make this SWEET dessert and serve it up with some SWEET words for your loved ones! Too often we use our words to tear each other down instead of building each other up. We focus on that which is lacking in one another instead of praising each other for our strengths.

We all know how much words can affect us… at least they affect me… they can make or break my day (or my week) and can inspire or discourage alike. So, whether you write a note or bring a verbal word of encouragement along with this crumble, speak gracious words that will be sweet to the souls of those who receive them… sweet like “honeycomb” as Proverbs says. 🙂

This recipe is especially close to my heart…
