National Encouragement Day

          I am not sure if you are aware but a great holiday is approaching! September 12, is National Encouragement Day! I had never heard of this until just recently so I looked it up. Here is what Wikipedia says about it.

The first proclamation for the Day of Encouragement was made by Mayor Belinda LaForce of Searcy, Arkansas. September 12, 2007 Mike Beebe, the Governor of Arkansas, signed the proclamation making it the "State Day of Encouragement" for Arkansas. Later, President George W. Bush also signed a message making it the official "National Day of Encouragement."

          I wanted to encourage everyone to take this holiday to heart. Watch your words carefully and give encouragement graciously to someone. It is fun to be able to put a smile on someone's face! "Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 ESV.
