I started this weekly post because I think it’s important to encourage one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:1 says, “Therefore encourage one another
and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.“
Some days, weeks, etc. can be difficult, and we need to lift each other up.
It’s no fun to be around people who are always complaining or negative.
No matter what season of life we’re in, we all need encouragement.
There are many ways we can do this.
One way is to send an encouraging note or letter.
Don’t you love getting a sweet note in the mail?
Some of the letters and notes that I’ve received I treasure
and I’ve kept them so I can read them again.
My Mom was a note writer and she was always sending someone an encouraging note.
One of the notes I treasure the most is the last one Mom wrote to me before she passed away.
It was a thank you for all the things I had been doing for her while she was sick.
No thank you note was needed because I was so thankful
to have this time with Mom before she died.
(BTW only a mother would call her daughter a saint )
I love seeing her hand writing and I love the way she always put a heart by our name.
Mom was a blessing to everyone who knew her because she was an encourager!
So what about you, have you written any notes lately?
Have you encouraged any one with a hug, or a phone call or even a smile?
This week let’s try to encourage the people around us.
Now it’s time for Encouraging Words Wednesday Linky Party!
We all need a little encouragement so each Wednesday I’m having a linky party.
If you have a post on marriage, parenting, faith, or anything that will encourage us then join in!
All you have to do is enter the direct link from your post into the linky tool below!
Please add a link back to my blog in your post so others can join in,
and be courteous and visit some other blogs and leave them some comment love.
