I learned through the blog (In)Courage that today is the National Day of Encouragement. It seems very fitting considering it follows 9/11. (In)Courage, courtesy of DaySpring, gave away a 10 pack of encouraging cards to anyone wanting to spread some encouragement and they asked the willing participants to share a story about it.
When I read through the pack of cards it was easy to figure out who I would send one too. The cards were perfectly written for the person that came to my mind and heart. I like to believe that is God’s way of winking at me.
Even though today is deemed as National Day of Encouragment, I believe it should be exercised everyday. There are too many troubles in the world and we all need to be lifted up whether it be with words, a smile, or an embrace.
