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…

Have You Explored the Motives of Your Heart?

Have You Explored the Motives of Your Heart?

What are your motives?     Happy first Sunday After Labor Day (for those in the USA)! Does it feel possible that we have already passed the summer-ending/fall-beginning holiday of Labor Day? Hubby Dave and I have been disoriented about what day it is since having the 3-day weekend a week ago! But I did just realize today is Grandparents Day, and hubby and I are blessed to have four adorable granddaughters … so far!       So onto…

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…

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…

Fellowship with Family and Friends – NOT with Your Faults!

Fellowship with Family and Friends – NOT with Your Faults!

Do NOT Fellowship with Your Faults!     Cooler weather tends to force people to spend more time indoors, of course, leading to closer fellowship with one another.   Enjoying the company of loved ones is fine, BUT…we shouldn’t fellowship with our faults! Some people are often quite happy to point out our faults to us…but we more often tend to be our own worst critics!   According to our handy online dictionary, we learn that fellowship as a verb,…

Should You Conform or Transform Your Life?

Should You Conform or Transform Your Life?

Conformation or Transformation?   [Please pardon my absence of a week or so–in addition to being out of state last weekend for a family wedding, I also suffered a mild concussion after colliding with one of our dogs! As I was bending down to hook our smallest dog on her run, one of our larger dogs jumped up and head butted me in the forehead — nearly knocked me out! I have a lump and a bruise above my right…
