We are beginning the last full week of the year. I hope that you have made this the best Christmas ever for someone else. There are so many folk that are just going through the motions; especially this time of year. However, we, and I do mean we, get so caught up in our own Christmas world that we don’t see the hurting people. I encourage us all to take the time to notice those around us and be an encourager to them. Not just in meaningless words or deeds, but sincerely mean whatever it is you decide to do to encourage those around you. Remember we all need uplifting and encouragement from time to time.
