So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT)

I awoke to the sweetest picture of myself and my Sparkly Sister, and this edifying text:

“You are precious to me!”

This was from the one person I knew I was to encourage for the day.  She followed with more inspiration. She sent me a picture of the most glorious pre-dawn sky!   She captioned it:

“I think God is giddy that I await his sunrise every morning! 

Followed by a song:

“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee…I will praise thee forever… I will follow you…my steps are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in my  way.”  (Psalm 63:1, Psalm 52:9, Psalms 37:23)

She actually sang the song, but these were the scriptures!   What a way to start the morning.  She beat me to the punch today.   She began the day by doing the Word.  She was the enCOURAGER today!

I  enCOURAGE you to encourage others.  A picture, a song, a text, a smile, a phone call, a word of encouragement can change someone’s day.   It changed mine.  Joy is contagious us.  Spread it!   Courage is contagious.  Spread it!
