It's the Balm

Updated on August 18, 2014

What do your lips say about you?

Did you realize that your lips tell a story about you? They actually tattletale whatever you are feeling. If you are happy they smile, but if you are grumpy or sad everyone can tell because your lips get wrinkly and poofy. That is why it's important to do things that keep our lips happy.

Something that people may think is very strange or even weird about me is that I always carry lip balm with me. I have it with me every where I go. Whether I am at home or out somewhere, lip balm is always in my pocket. When I go to bed at night it is on my nightstand. There is never a time I am not without my lip balm. Yes, it's the balm for me that makes me smile.

Why do I make such a fuss about my lip balm? Because it keeps my lips smooth and feeling good so I can always be ready to smile, say kind things, sing or even whistle. No one likes dry, cracked lips. Happy lips means happy smiles. Are you ready to smile or make someone happy by using your mouth to do good things for God? Then "balms" away.

Be sure to use your lips and mouth only to say things that will encourage others to smile also.

Sing with Your Lips

Singing is a great way

to make people smile.

Use your lips to make joyful

noises that will please.

Larry says he loves his lips. - Take care of your lips. If they turn blue, what would you do?

The second video has the words to sing along with Larry.

"By him therefore let us offer

the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is,

the fruit of our lips

giving thanks to his name."

(Hebrews 13:15)

Music from my lips: Hebrews 13:15 MP3 - Singing is fruit from your lips.

Three versions that are taken from Hebrews 13:15. One to suit every style. (May not play in this order, but you can tell which one it is.)

Version 1: A Sacrifice Of Praise (Hebrews 13:15 - NIV) by Integrity/Columbia Music Group offers a soft version for memory verse lessons. I like this version very much.

Hebrews 13:15 version released in 2006 is a somewhat faster version with a much different tone about it. Not for everybody, but some will find this meets their needs and music style.

The third version is a peppy upbeat tempo that includes passages from Praise On My Lips / (Psalm 34:1-3) (Psalm 63:3-5) (Hebrews13:15) by Sonja G. Whitmore & the High Praise Chorale Ensemble. A really fun version kids will move to easily and get everyone off their seat and to their feet.span>

Finish the Face

Our lips tell a story. If we are happy the corners of our mouth make our lips to point up. If we are sad the corners of our lips will point toward the ground.

How are you feeling today? Finish the pictures by drawing a face for each expression and feeling.
