Good Monday Morning. I came across this the other day, and I couldn’t have worded it better, so with permission from Dr Dan…

As we run the race of life we all need encouragement and need to give it to others.   Matter of fact, the word comes from a combination of the prefix “en” which means “to put into” and the Latin word “cor” which means heart.   Encouragement is like an arrow that goes straight to one’s heart that has the power to inspire, infuse strength, and help someone who has grown weary in life’s race to continue on with patience and fortitude.   By our words and actions we can “put into the heart” of others that needed strength to help them through those tough stretches of life. We need to be part of that stadium of people who are shouting encouragement to those whose legs have grown weary. As well, if we listen closely we need to recognize and appreciate the many around us who are shouting encouragement to us.

My white double-ruffled hibiscus bush has shed nearly all its leaves, and I actually wondered if it was dead.
