Kncouragement i- something we
naturally look for. The hungry soul
is grasping for a little praise, a
cheerful smile, or a word of hope
as we travel through life. God
placed somewhere in the heart of
each of us, a tender memory, which
enables n- to touch with a gentle
hi.i.'i or a >'
of the afflicted and give encourage-
ment. And what a comfort to
know that for every heartache there
is somewhere in the universe a
heaven inspired soul to give com-
fort and encouragement.
Do not miss an opportunity for
doing these small things that will
be helpful to others, for the smaller
things are always at hand and when
the great opportunities come the
one who has trained himself in the
little things is mast it of the situ-
ation. Do not neglect to do a favor
for those who need your help, and
do not wait for chances for doing
good to come to you. but go out
and meet them.
We do not si i m to realize that
what the world n ■ 'Is is encourage-
ment and v.i .,v too stingy with
i nr praise and too lavish of our
' ' ime. We think of things we
Id have done when the dear
head lit s low, and when the beau-
tiful hands are still, if we would
have been more bright and tlfe la-
bor less wearing.
Many of Us would never he able
day after day to face life with its
struggles, its duties, its antago-
nism, were it not for the renewal of
strength we get from words of en-
couragement received by the way.
They are as little fragments of
heaven let down to inspire us with
patience and strength.
A kind word costs but little, but

It is encouragement that calls
