Encouraging Word October 21, 2013

May today be your day to dance lightly with life
to sing wild songs of adventure,
to invite rainbows and butterflies out to play,
to soar your spirit and unfurl your joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie



This week we celebrate lives lived, of people who danced the short time they were on earth, who began families not knowing they would not get to live to see them grow all the way up, who embodied the spirit of faith and joy they were given the grace to share.

This week’s reminder is to try to always spread joy in people’s lives. You have no idea how you affect the people around you. It may be your smile, the pat on the back you gave or just doing a job with a happy heart that makes a difference in someone’s life.

This week we buried two dads, both in their late 40’s, both with young kids and tons of family and friends.  It’s times like these we have to work hard to remember that we need to live life to the fullest, with the grace God gives us, with joy and the hope of eternal life.

May God’s peace be with them and their families and may their children feel their loving presence throughout their lives.
