A Little Encouragement

Hello, everyone!

I don't have a big, long, detailed blog post today. Actually, this is the third or fourth attempt at starting a post today, because I just can't seem to put into words my thoughts today. But the feeling that maybe y'all need some more encouragement keeps popping up, so I thought I'd give a little. I'll just cover a wide variety of things since I don't know what each of you are going thru at the moment.

For those who are single- Remember, we're still waiting together. I'm praying with you and for you. Keep in mind that waiting on God to send the right person gives us time to develop the traits and skills He has given us and find uses for them. Don't sit around waiting, get out and do something for the Lord! Being single isn't an excuse to be lazy in your spiritual walk, especially when you are old enough to marry but haven't met anyone yet.

Friday Chat

First off... My shop. I didn't realize it was going to be as much work as it is. Not that I don't mind, but at times it gets a little overwhelming thinking about everything I need or ought to do. Thankfully it's not a full blown, 8 hours a day kind of business. It's a cross between hobby and fledgling business. But the Lord has blessed and I'm thankful to be where I am!

Friends... Oh, boy. My friends. They're hilarious, they're encouraging and they're the best people I know. From telling me what I need to hear instead of what I want to hear, to sending puns, memes and jokes... What would I do without their constant texts of support and sometimes awkward conversations? I know what I'd do, I'd go crazy.

Family... We're battling some allergies and it's not been fun lately. Hopeful…

God Given Means to Minister, Part One- Your Words

Lately I've been tossing around in my mind different ways believers minister to other believers, and thinking on how I can best use the abilities God has given me. I've been encouraged by my Christian friends and have seen first hand the different means to minister God has given different people. Hopefully these posts will be a blessing to you, and maybe will encourage you to use the abilities God has given you to be a blessing to someone else!

"Stick and stones may break my bones..."

Everyone knows the next line. "But words can never hurt me." Eh, sorry, that's not true. Words can hurt more sometimes than physical pain. One slip of the tongue can leave a heart broken, a life ruined or a relationship severed. Sometimes it's intentional, other times by accident, but either way, our words can hurt people.
Sadly, I'm guilty of hurting others with my words. I know I've done it. I'd give anything to take back those words. But knowing I've …
