September 16th, 2019

A little encouragement can go a long way. Today we received a one sentence note in the mail and it made my day. It was a very simple thank you that was jotted down on a piece of note paper and sent along with a donation. It brought joy to our staff.

Sometimes when we think about being being an encouragement or even a good neighbor; we get visions of a huge time investment or imagine having to bake cookies that live up to some Instagram worthy photo. The reality is that a word, a smile, or a sentence can be enough. I have some thoughtful coworkers that leave post-it notes on my desk just to let me know they were thinking of me.  😀 Those “little” things can make a persons day!

Sometimes we receive encouragement from others and sometimes we need to encourage ourselves! Tough days sometimes stack up more frequently than we like. Reminders of truths from God’s Word, scriptures, songs and even beautiful art or things from nature can inject life into dry bones on any given day.  Recently I jotted a few very simple sharpie written reminders onto some scrap paper and hung them where I could see them at my desk.

  • be positive
  • be joyful
  • be encouraging
  • be thankful

Don’t discount your “little” attempts at bringing light to the world around you.  Each one of us is a difference maker.
