Bless Someone With Words of Encouragement....

Nothing touches a heart more than a kind word of encouragement. This weekend I received a wonderful gift that truly touched my heart. I host a bible study every Friday morning . We have a wonderful group who I consider dear friends. On Saturday morning my friend Shelly (from bible study) arrived at my house with a beautiful gift in hand. This beautiful PINK hydrangea plant.




Scattered throughout the blooms were encouraging bible verses, printed on pretty pink paper. It was absolutely beautiful. It as a gift from the bible study group. What an Easter blessing.


They all know I LOVE PINK
 Did you notice the buttons and pink bows....

 
They selected these verses purposely for me.
 Each of them touched my heart.


 
To my suprise, each bible verse had a gift card inside.  Can you believe it! It brought tears to my eyes to think that they had thought of me and created this wonderful gift just for me! 

 


The gift got me thinking. I wanted to write some words of encouragement to my boys and husband.  Here's an idea that you can do for your family.  Easter Sunday before I prepared breakfast,  I typed out a little note to each of the "guys" in my life.  I decorated the note and place it by each of their plates. 


Each card said,
"You Are A Blessing To Me Because..."





This was such a quick little thing to do, but it had such a big impact.  Each of the guys had a big smile on their face. Just a few simple words of encouragement can  be such a blessing.  It's something so easy we can do for those who we care about.
Sometimes the simplest of words can be priceless.  Hope this got you thinking about how you might send a word of encougagement to someone special.
Looking for other creative ideas?  Here's where I'm linking up to....

This is really sweet, Sherry! I think it's a great idea because so often we don't let people know how we feel about them or what they mean to us.

Now that is a fabulous idea for a gift...tell your group that I'm going to keep this one in mind for the future. It's so neat how you told your family how much you love them...so simple, but soooooo SWEET:) Hope you had a good time at NTT.

Blessings,
