Slow to speak

She said, "Let me tell you, I will be making it a daily prayer in my life. I am going to use this Psalm as a prayer on my lips Psalm 141:3: "Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips." "
I won't go into a lot of the details leading to the article, but for me and my thoughts I hope to live by "James 1:19–Help me to be quick to listen and slow to speak," also quoted in her blog.
I need to be slow to speak as well!
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
I want to clarify a little here.
Lori's last paragraph today [Aug 25] is what I have committed to with my speaking. ["I'm going to avoid criticism and hurt by listening before I speak and honoring what I commit to do."]
Not my speech. I gave that to the Lord quite a few years ago. When I even think a cuss word the Holy Spirit chastises me.
