You Might Need to use Your Thumbs!


We’ve heard it a million times, “actions speak louder than words”. And while I do agree with that quote, there is something to be said about words. Often the “action” is in presenting the words!

We have so many ways to express our sentiments. We can text, Facebook, instagram, twitter…and not have to verbally say a thing; one doesn’t even have to pick up the phone or make a visit.

How hard can that be?

You can even express concern for someone without really meaning it. That sounds cruel, but the benefits for the person receiving that concern can be incredible.

I am not recommending insincerity at all, but I cannot begin to understand how hard it is to tell someone that you are praying for them, that you are concerned for their welfare, that they are on your mind….a few simple words is all that is required.

“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31

There is literally no investment, but it appears to be a forgotten part of etiquette. Just show respect, just be kind. It takes a little bit of time.

How hard can that be?


In our fast pace society that seems to be focused on “me”, we have been given the opportunity to show we aren’t selfish…..we have every possible social means to do so…and yet we do not.

Sometimes we just have to surrender our flesh and the feelings to Christ as He cares for others through us. Something to think about…..

I must be more mindful of that in the future.

I might just have to use a couple of thumbs to do it!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
