Bread for the Journey

But encourage one another daily...
as long is it is called Today.
Hebrews 3:13

We have no problem picking out our favorite team...or our favorite player...and cheering them on in their game. In many cases..we cheer for people we don't even know. We are not always quite as enthusiastic about offering our encouragement to those we are 'doing life' with. We need others to come alongside of us...and they need to hear us cheering for them. So throw your support behind the team of your choice (the Vancouver Canucks would be a good choice right now!)...but don't forget to cheer for those who need a little encouragement in the game of life.

Sunday blessings...

  1. What a good reminder. Yesterday we celebrated my dad's 81st birthday and my sister and I were talking in the morning about some of the things we have always found true of him as a dad. She said "he has always been our cheerleader". I had to agree, and this morning after I read your BRTJ I will be more purposeful in cheering on my family. Kathy

  2. Thanks for the reminder, Judy. You put that very well! As I was reading this, and before I saw your signature, I thought it was your writing - I guess it is distinctive! Now I'll go out and do some 'cheerleading'. Dairymary

  3. Yes, Judy.. A little word of encouragement takes such little effort on our part and yet deposits so much in the heart of the recipient of our encouragement.
    Thank you for the reminder!

  7. Thanks for the nice reminder to be encouraging to others. It's too easy to "forget" to say nice things to those we are closest too. We are a Canucks family too :-) My husband is from BC living here in the states now though. Thank goodness for NHL Ice or he would be an unhappy camper during hockey season.

  8. Even though I have no favorite teams in any sport, what a great reminder - to cheer on the one's we do LIFE with, and especially those of the household of faith!

  10. This was our message today in our "One Another" series. Romans 12:9,10 and Phil.2:1-4. Good encouragement to us to build up others.

  11. Judy: Thank you for thoughts today. I discovered this web site about a month ago and have been a faithful every since. The recipes are wonderful and the other thoughts, insights and stories add another whole perspective to your blog - what a combination food for the body and for the soul. I can certainly say we all need a little soul food. Thank you.
