  1. Anna,
    Thank you so much for the reminder that we ought not to let anything hold us back from encouraging others. I know when others have encouraged me, I have always felt appreciative. I don’t know a heart that couldn’t use some encouraging, but yet we hold back. Joining with you in leaping forward with encouraging words and actions. Have a blessed Sunday!

    • Bev, you are one of the most encouraging women I know. Thank you for your ever present words of affirmation in this space. I hope you had a beautiful Sunday!

  2. Anna, I praise the Lord and thank you for this beautiful posting today. May each of us offer encouraging, Holy Spirit guided words today from our hearts that positively build each other up in Christ’s truth and love 🙂 Please pray for me today 🙂

  3. Anna,
    Everyone needs to be encouraged in some form. I try to say thank you to the cashier or compliment someone on a nice outfit! Lately some friends have been having aging parent issues. Since we are all going through the same thing I encourage & pray for them. I also offer some advice & hugs!! Life is tough and we need to let each other know we have their backs!

    Blessings 🙂

    • Just wanted to let everyone know I am praying for their requests! Blessings to everyone and Happy Lord’s Day!

  4. Please pray for this health issue that has gotten me down. Also, for being able to conceive a healthy baby. We have been struggling to start a family, I think in part d/t work stress. Please pray for work, as it the stress of it has impacted me SO much. Thank you!!

    • Lou, I have been there. Praying fervently for your health, your stress level, and the plans God has for your family. May peace be yours in spades, sister.
