Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Our BOS word for the day is “Encourage”
Encourage- Give support, confidence, or hope to someone.; advice to someone to do or continue something.
I like to think I encourage others often, but it’s hard to encourage others when you are busy or just having a bad day. Can you imagine a world were everyone is having a bad day, and no one encourages each other? Boy it would be just awful!!
Some days are harder than others, but I always try to remember the verse below when I need a little push in the right direction.
Therefore encourage one another and edify ( build up) one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
I love this passage from Joyce Meyers, ” Starting Your Day Right Book” which states,” We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounces if we become encouragers instead of critics. No matter how rough your day is today, speak words that uplift and encourage those around you. Encourage others if you notice them doing a job- not just those who work with you but people wherever you go.”
You are the greater person in God’s eyes when you choose to do right and bless others. You can change your life and someone else’s by choosing to speak positive words.
Everyone looks forward to the glossy catalogs from J. Crew for Fall, but this year they decided to go a different route. Today they released their September Style Guide on Pinterest, and the fashion world is buzzing. It’s actually a really smart move and I bet a few fashion lines will follow this trend. I love this collection because it’s stylish, not too sexy, and can be worn by every generation, which means lot’s of closet sharing this fall. Let’s just say it’s encouraging.
I would love to know your thoughts on the new collection. You can see the full sneak peek on Pinterest
