Now when you are out shopping, and you're in the fruit aisle,
And your comparing apples or oranges for their size and looks.
That is considered to be wise.
When we use our resources and manage things well.
Using coupons, finding the best deals, buying while on sale.
But to compare yourself to another person is very wrong!
Each person is on their own race and can be anywhere in the process.
Some are starting out, some are half-way.
Some have taken so many detours, they have lost their sense of direction.
We can use others to help us in making decisions, and even
Imitating someones cooking or decorating ideas.
This I believe is being encouraged by another and responding by
imataining their ideas.
Or, you may be a person that you do not want anyone to copy your ideas!
But I find it a great compliment when someone likes what I have done.
God tells us in His word to imitate Paul or copy James;
Trying to make good choices in any arena of life is a good thing.
I love it when one of you ladies Blogs inspire me!
You make me laugh and giggle,
Your crafts and recipes have helped me to create beautiful things!
I have felt challenged and invigorated to try something new.
I have read words of wisdom that required a change of direction.
Some Blogs have taught me to hold steady!
I have seen posts of an artist that I did not even know who existed.
I have read posts and some comments that encouraged me when I was weary!
A comment or an Email can fan a flame dear ones!
The Bible is filled with encouragement;
You say you never need to be encouraged...
I think that the gift of encouragement is one of the very best and most needed;
Do not compare yourself with people!
But line yourself up with God's word...
A wise woman once told me;
Try to stay humble in God's sight
Walk in Love
Stay true to myself
And be faithful to God!
I will tell you this one thing;
If you will encourage another, and help them stay the course;
It will go well with you...
I ask tough things of others, I speak truths that are uncomfortable;
I call you up to a higher calling...
Is your blog a beacon of light?
Do you leave comments to help and encourage another?
Do you stay the course?
I do not care if someone thinks I am a bit fruity (A Fruit Loop)
I just want to bear fruit...
Please make this a rime to encourage someone today;
Make this a year to bring the gift of promotion to others;
Lift them up in prayer
Encourage them with words
We are bloggers and using a social media for good!
Nothing wasted, nothing lost!
We are all the same; and we are all unique...
A special treasure
