Something about encouragement

Anyone who has ever had a friend or a boss who was a fault-finder understands how important encouragement is and how disheartening the lack of it can be. Here's another reason to make it part of your way of being in the world:

Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that one never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.

-- George M. Adams

    I have another blog that is geared more to traditional church oriented sprituality that might interest you as well. Right here:

  3. very true, Ellie. I guess giving encouragement is like any form of giving - it generally feels good.
