By the way, our new Christmas tradition, that we just instituted last night, is this. Keep your Christmas tree hidden in the far back corner of your yard, where no one can see it, then during the month of December of the following year, burn it in the fire pit, and roast marshmallows as a family. Is that recycling, re purposing, or re using???? Ha Ha!! It was fun though it might not always be encouraging to your neighbors! HA!

Encouragement game day 4
Well, you all are encouraging me by even reading this silly blog, so don't for a minute think you haven't encouraged anyone!!!!LOL
I encouraged my kids by making them all grits for breakfast yesterday....HAHA. Hey, I said the small ones counted too! Lets see. I wrote a few encouraging e-mails to some people I haven't kept up with well, but love and care for very much. I told the sales Lady at the children's clothing store how much I appreciated the fact that they had toys there to keep my littlest happy while I shopped. That might have been encouraging. I spoke to the checker at Walmart by name (name tag) and asked him about his day. That might have been irritating, but I meant it to be encouraging. The best part of this game for me, is that I am going about my day seeking to encourage, with my actions, and with my words. I felt a bit thwarted (Satan perhaps, or just hormones....wait is that two different things????) in my efforts. I persevered however, and continue to pray for opportunities, as well as ideas of how, to encourage those around me.
Soooo, it's your turn, what is your story of encouragement???
