October Already? Why I Started Words of Encouragement

October Already? Why I Started Words of Encouragement

Happy October 1st! Welcome to Words of Encouragement!   Just me, Dr. K. Lee! 🙂   Happy October 1st to all! What happened to September? I totally lost the last half, as you may have noticed by not seeing any blog posts since mid-September!   I have once again joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month for some additional motivation to write consistently. So for my first post on this new month, I thought I would re-introduce the back…

On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

16 Years Ago…       On Labor Day 16 (!) years ago (actually September 2, 2002), my beloved Dad ceased his labors, escaped the suffering of lymphoma, and left the boundaries of this earth to enter heaven’s gates – to touch the face of God, and to return the embrace of the Lord Whom Dad served his entire life.   In a departure from my usual format, because of this day of remembrance,  I thought I would once again…

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Attitude Adjustment? OR Attitude of Gratitude?       Do you have an attitude of gratitude or do you need an attitude adjustment? I blogged yesterday about how attitude plays a role in our lives, and can affect whether we block or fulfill our destinies…how “attitude controls altitude.”  It’s also true that gratitude (or lack thereof) affects attitude. That focus brought to mind this post I shared a couple years ago, so I thought I’d update it and share it…

Happy October 1st! Welcome to Words of Encouragement!     Happy October 1st to all! I have once again joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month, so for my first post, I thought I would re-introduce the back story and purpose of this blog (can also be found on my About page). I thought this would also be a good idea because I’ve recently joined several new blog groups on Facebook. I decided to revise this blog, which was…

My Dad’s 84th Birthday – Wish He Was Here to Celebrate It!

My Dad’s 84th Birthday – Wish He Was Here to Celebrate It!

Today… is my Dad’s 84th Birthday… his 15th in Heaven! ~~*~~ ~~*~~   I am thankful that on this day 84 years ago, one of the best men ever was born. He grew up to serve his country in the army, to get married and raise 4 kids, to become grandfather to 11 grandchildren, and great-grandfather to 8 great-grandchildren (and another on the way this July). He never had the joy of meeting any of the great-grandchildren, nor have they…

Gratitude Challenge – November 23 – Thankful for Attitude Adjustments When Necessary

Gratitude Challenge – November 23 – Thankful for Attitude Adjustments When Necessary

Here at Words of Encouragement…   **NOVEMBER MEANS: GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!** On this night before Thanksgiving, do you have an attitude of gratitude or do you need an attitude adjustment? One quality my Dad faithfully exhibited, even at the end of his days on earth, was gratitude. He was still thankful for all his blessings and for his family. Even during his last conscious hours, he encouraged US, his family members, to adjust our attitudes and display this attitude of gratitude…
