Encouragement


I came home to this little gem in the mail the other day. It was a card full of amazingly encouraging words from a friend of ours. A friend we don't see that often but a great friend nonetheless.

In it he told us how we - as a family - encourage him so much in his walk. But wait - the reality of it is this - it's really the other way around.

This guy's Facebook feed is overwhelmingly and abundantly positive and he ALWAYS points it straight back to God. How on earth can we encourage him when he has been a solid inspiration for us for a LONG time?

Nope - Jeff... YOU are the one doing the encouraging. Don't ever stop being you man.

He also had put some money in there and said "Go buy the girls some ice cream..."

Tonight was for you Jeff - thank you so much for being the kind of person you are.



Being cut down by those close to you is one thing. But being built back up by those you have friendships with has God's name written all over it. Thanks Jeff for allowing yourself to be used in such a powerful way - even when ya had no idea it was happening...
