“A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success”
In times like these where everyone seems to be on pins and needles, a kind word may make all the difference in the world. I spent a day away from the television yesterday and I have to tell you, I felt better by just not hearing all of the desperate voices and silent screams. I was going about my day interacting with people and sharing my life with others. As I arrived home I realized that I had been part of a wonderfully blessed day by the Lord with no drama and no disruptions.
Now I am not saying that you can simply ignore what is going on around you. I am saying that you have a say in how those things impact you. What I allow myself to feed on will provide the nutrients that help me grow. (or shrink)
People today need to be lifted up. Encouragement is oxygen to the soul. So why not brighten the day of another person today? Find something nice today and pass it on. It's easy to cheer when your team scores. Cheering simply because your team is playing takes discipline. This is your day. Make it a great one!
