Be Encouraged... God Loves You!

Be Encouraged… God Loves You!

This was one of my mom’s catch phrases.  She ended almost every conversation this way.  No matter what the situation was that you were going through she wanted you to be encouraged and trust in the God who loves you so very much.

On the days when it seems as if the cares of life are getting the best of me I hear the echo of Mommy’s voice in my head saying, “Be encouraged, God loves you!”  And you know what, I feel better.

It has been over six years since I said goodbye to my mom.  However, she has not been absent from my conversations.  I find myself saying often “as my mother would say…” or “my mother always told me…” So I decided that in 2013 I will blog once per month on the topic, Things My Mother Said because   I don’t want to lose the many pearls of wisdom that she shared.

Proverbs 31:25
She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

Trusting Him,


  1. What a beautiful gift your mother gave you in those words. Once on a retreat, one of the leaders hugged me and said, "Remember, you are loved". Those are powerful words that keep us going forward. Thanks for sharing that beautiful memory of your mom.

    1. Thanks Andie, and for sharing your memory of powerful words also. It's amazing how the memory of positive word lingers.


Thank you for dropping by. Do leave a note so I can return the compliment.
