Words to love by # 2


"WE SHOULD SEIZE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE ENCOURAGEMENT. ENCOURAGEMENT IS OXYGEN TO THE SOUL."
Proverbs 15:23 "A man has joy by the answer of his mouth:
and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

Nobody ever became ill or died from receiving too much genuine praise and encouragement. but who can count the wounded hearts, weary souls, and troubled minds that have from their lack!


Her name is Jan. She's a teacher. She taught a 3rd grade once, a long time ago. One bright-eyed boy would stand at her desk, watch her, talk to her, all the while wrapping his finger around a piece of her hair into a little curl. The boy thought Jan was the shining star in the night. Over and over, however, he did poorly in his work assignments and daily quizzes.
One day Jan stopped, looked at him, and said, "Rodney, you are very smart. You could be doing so well in school. In fact, you are one of my finest students..." before she could continue to tell him that he should be doing much better in school... he looked up at her with sober, large eyes: "I did not know that!"
From the moment on, Rodney began to change. His papers were neater, cleaner, his spelling improved. He was one of her top students. All because she affirmed him. She told him something no one ever had before. It changed his life.
