Do not be discouraged

Discouragement can come in many ways.
It can strike us at any time, over any thing.

Whether it be gardening, cooking, woodworking, our jobs, our hobbies,
the way things are going in the world.

Discouragement tries to kill the joy and peace
that can fill our lives otherwise.

Each day is new, a gift.
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not here yet, today is what we have.

Will we seek the good, asking for strength and guidance,
or look for all the wrongs and live in worry?

The choice is ours.
There is much to learn through each day's experiences, good or bad.

There is beauty and blessings in each day,
that can lift our hearts and souls to higher ground.

I will close this little post with a thought from
Gertrude Jeykll.

Sincerely ~ FlowerLady


"Let no one be discouraged

by the thought of how much there is to learn.

Each new step becomes a little surer,

and each new grasp a little firmer."

Hi Flowerlady,
I am behind in my blog reading. I enjoyed this one. It is good not to be discouraged, and it is always nice to receive encouragement like yours!
