It sounds like y’all enjoyed the June (in)courage desktop wallpaper enough that we’re incorporating these downloadable wallpapers into a monthly feature. In case you really like a particular one and want to keep using it, I’m including versions both with and without a calendar. Both are available 1280×800 and 1680×1050 sizes.
This one is very Southern: look at all that kudzu! Just right-click and save to your computer, and then set as your desktop wallpaper. Enjoy!
Encourage One Another is a theme that we’re celebrating here at (in)courage in honor of the site’s one year anniversary and relaunch. In my personal experience, there’s nothing like friendships with like-minded sisters in Christ to comfort and support you in the difficult times and rejoice with you in good seasons.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed. When my best friends get together for some girl time, it’s fascinating to see that we’re fighting the same battles, each on our own turf.
We have children the same ages and many of our experiences with them ring familiar. Knowing that everyone else’s 10 year old daughter is sassy and exasperating (can we see a show of hands?) doesn’t make the problem go away, but it just feels better to commiserate with each other, sometimes brainstorming parenting tactics.
I Corinthians 10:13 tells us, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
You are not alone. Whatever you’re facing, others have “been there, done that” or they may be in the same place right now. Encourage one another, however that looks in your life—whether through online, face-to-face, or long-distance friendships.
