Reason 1–"I don’t have time"—really well I see you on facebook playing games, you are out to eat, you are at the movies and more. Nothing is wrong with those things but are they more important than a friend? I am forever stuck waiting in one line or another. While you are waiting write a short note and drop it in the mail.
Reason 2–"I don’t have the money"-hugs are free, pick some flowers from your yard, smiles and a touch of the hand are free. I see some people who look like they have a cellphone growing out of their ears-so take a moment to call a friend and say I thought of you today.
I could go on and on with reasons but really they are not reasons but rather excuses. Think of it this way-how would you feel if you were the one that needed encouraging and maybe you are. Even if you need encouragement yourself look around and find someone you can be a blessing to and I promise you will be the one that ends up being blessed also.
Thanks to all the ladies who have been and are an encouragement to me. Now I am off to pray and ask God to show me someone I can be an encouragement to, will you do the same?
