But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:13 NIV

1. Give support, confidence, or hope to (someone)
2. Give support and advice to (someone) to do or continue something

Part of being a good friend is encouraging one another. In fact, the scripture in Hebrews commands us to encourage. We all need some sweet encouragement and a reminder of our hope in the Lord. It's also nice to know that we've got a friend when we feel distant and down, cold and abandoned. So, when presented with an opportunity for some free DaySpring greeting cards through (in)courage, I jumped on it! I personally LOVE happy mail and enjoy sending it, too! 

Meet Rochelle
She is truly an incredible lady and she's my dearest girlfriend. She's full of grace and love. She's thoughtful and selfless, optimistic and uplifting. She's wise and fears the Lord. She's makes me want to be a better friend, wife, and disciple. She leads by example, and that's easier said than done! Recently, her first-born went to college and she's really feeling his absence. I thought she could use some encouragement, so this card went to her.

It reads:
Thank you for sharing God's love, not only with your words but also with your life.
In today's world, that's not always easy to do - but you do it with kindness and consistency.
That's what makes you different, and it's the reason you make a difference.

Thanks for being who you are and doing what you do - you're appreciated more than you know.

God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God's many kinds of blessings. 1 Peter 4:10 TLB

Meet Jan
Jan is my mother-in-law. She is sweet, loving, and an encourager. She loves her grandbabies and is a giver.  She has been through a lot, especially this past year, and has experienced a roller coaster of emotions. I know she could use some encouragement. I sent this card to her.
It reads:
I wish I had a big yellow umbrella that would keep away all the rain in your life. I would hold it over your head, and the drops would splash, and you would never even feel it.

But I don't have a big yellow umbrella- so I'll walk through the rain with you.
Love one another. John 13:34 The Message

Many thanks to DaySpring for sending me some of their newest cards made specifically for encouraging girlfriends! I was blown away by the messages in the cards and hope the friends that I sent them to will be encouraged!

Happy Encouragement Day!
