Thoughtful Encouragement

Two birds in a nest lawn ornament

In a busy world

That’s been slowed down by the

Corona Virus

Opportunities exist

To consider one another

Tanka

“and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds,”

Hebrews 10:24 AMP

By the Wayside

Tiny yellow flowers blooming in an obscure place.

Bringing some joy

To those who have none

In an obscure place

Haiku

Many of us are in an obscure place right now. Walking unfamiliar paths, trying hard to find hope in the midst of all the new normal, yet, if we look, many times we will see little splashes of joy scattered along our path, tiny seeds planted to encourage us as we navigate through these challenging times.

Take some time to look for them today, usually they are found in unexpected places and just at the time they’re needed the most.

March’s Marquee

Yellow and White Crocus blooming

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

As I walk the dreary way

Coming soon” the signs say

Birds sing of a brighter day

Spring color will soon be here

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

Encourage Yourself

Never Give Up painting

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Don’t lose hope before you begin

Some days when you just can’t win

Keep tryin’ and make yourself grin

Pray for God’s strength to stand up

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Pick Your Battles

Fallen Knight in Battle Armor

“Don’t sweat the small things”

When life tries to weary you

Keep up and keep on.

Senryu

If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan? Jeremiah 12:5
