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 – and Why I Started Words of Encouragement

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…

God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

Let Go and Let God!   Let go and let God carry your cares, because He cares for you. Sometimes this is easier said than done. We tend to want to hold onto our “cares” and problems, perhaps feeling like if we let go, we are not in control, and that allows fear to enter the picture. But I think that’s the point: we need to recognize and understand when we’re struggling and overwhelmed, we really are NOT in control…

On Grieving the Loss of Pets

On Grieving the Loss of Pets

Pets Are Family, Too   A tragic incident suffered by a loved one yesterday in losing a beloved pet prompted this departure from my usual format for my blog post today. 🙁 I am thankful for our fur babies who bring so much joy into our lives. We return the love they give us so unconditionally until they sadly leave us. Loss of our pets is a sad reality on the other end of pet ownership. My heart is heavy…
