Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Hey!How are you
doing?Hi there!What are you up to these days?What is going on?How have you been?
These and many other short sayings are common everyday
expressions used to open up a conversation.
Some would take you wrong, and think that you were prying
into their private life.Offence is
often made unwittingly and certainly not intended.Why do some hold their feelings attached to
their coat sleeves?
Another common expression for those easily hurt is:“Get Over it!”
Then there are others who would be happy that you cared to
ask, and even speak to them.
Usually you will get a short answer that lets you know they
are fine, or doing good.Some would even
answer that they are “Blessed.”
Honestly you would prefer that you do not get a detailed
report of their last physical examination, but that could happen too.
Others might let you know they would appreciate prayer
regarding something going on in their family.
Use caution yourself not to relate all your woes and troubles,
for your sad story may fall on deaf ears.
5:2Be not rash with your mouth, and let
not your heart be hasty to utterany
thing before God: for God is in heaven, and you upon earth: therefore let your
words be few.
Instead let your listener leave feeling they have been
encouraged to have spoken with you.
How did the Gospel writers greet their friends?Usually they said, “Greetings to all the
saints.”Simply stated that means if
you are a Christian, then you are a saint.
1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
