Do you have favorite ways of encouraging others? I like pats. Pats on the shoulder, pats on the head, and pats on the back. I'm trying to think of new ways because quite honestly, I forget to tell people stuff. I want to get better at this.
|Compliments must be considered and checked for sincerity.|
Encouragements should be pleasing, soft, inspiring.
They can be light in the disheartening darkness.
They can be fresh like a walk beside your favorite river. Ratty is encouraged by his own river.
Encouragement itself can be a party! Our sweet son-in-law was very encouraged by his surprise birthday party last night.
It can be a birthday gift wrapped in your favorite color. I gave Jeff some kitchen stuff for his future house. He loved.
It can also be a sweet sight, like these bunny slipper clad baby feet. I find my own bunny slippers quite encouraging.
I'm going to try harder. I will let you know how it goes. I'd love to hear your favorite ways of encouraging the people in your life. Please share.
