Hello there

While it’s been so long that I feel the need to re-introduce myself, I will refrain because this is still my blog. If you come here, you know me. Hopefully you’ve just wondered where I’ve been.

Instead of boring you with the actual details of my quite mundane days, I will jump right in with something I was reminded of today on a walk while listening to Rita Springer’s podcast.

“Give what you wish you’d been given.”

Sometimes I can get caught in negative self talk. In years past when I felt discouraged and wondered where all the encouragers were, I would take out some stationary and start writing someone an encouraging note and pop it in the mailbox. It’s amazing how doing for others what you believe you need in your life can really set you free!

So today, I want you to think about this in your life—

Do you feel like no one ever encourages you? Go encourage someone.

Do you feel unseen? Go tell someone you see their hard work. Remind a mom her work is not in vain. Tell your husband you appreciate his hard work for your family.

Do you wish an older woman had some time for you or wisdom to share with you or made herself available to you? Go be the available older woman to a younger woman.

Do you wish someone would open their home to you? Go first! Open your home to someone!

Go give what you wish you had been given. God sees you and will bless you for pouring yourself out for others.

PROVERBS 11:25 “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”
