Encouragement

39b83a4ac134814fe30648208ee1cf66

One of the highest of human duties is the duty of encouragement…It is easy to laugh at men’s ideals; it is easy to pour cold water on their enthusiasm; it is easy to discourage others. The world is full of discouragers. We have a Christian duty to encourage one another. Many a time a word of praise or thanks or appreciation or cheer has kept a man on his feet. Blessed is the man who speaks such a word.

—William Barclay

Not enough pens or paper

Beautiful_roads1

We need deliberately
to call to mind
the joys of our journey.
Perhaps we should try
to write down the blessings of one day.
We might begin; we could never end;
there are not pens
or paper enough
in all the world.

George A. Buttrick
