New International Version (NIV)
24 Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
...because this image brings back so many good memories of my grandparents on the farm. Grandpa smoked a pipe and Grandma helped him to break the habit, not by nagging, but by keeping a dish of lemon drops where he once kept his pipe. The smell of a pipe and the taste of lemon drops will be forever sweet to my soul.
