12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

I was at Berean Christian Store this week and the darling girl behind the counter handed me a free greeting card and said, “We are giving these out in honor of National Encouragement Week. You can give this to a friend.”
How cool! But I think every week should be encouragement week. Perhaps this will help to motivate you. It does me. If not, check out Berean, and maybe they will give you a free card to send to a person who needs your encouragement!”

It Isn’t Enough
It isn’t enough to say in our hearts
That we like a friend for her ways,
It isn’t enough that we fill our minds
With paeans of silent praise;
Nor is it enough that we honor a woman
As our confidence upward mounts,
It’s going right up to the woman herself,
And telling her so that counts!
If a gal does a work you really admire,
Don’t leave a kind word unsaid,
In fear that to do so might make her vain
And cause her to “lose her head.”
But reach out your hand and tell her,
“Well done,” and see how her gratitude swells;
It isn’t the flower we strew on the grave,
It’s the word to the living that tells.
