Gifts from God: Encouragement

On Saturday morning during our prayers of the Third Hour (thank you, Mary), when Little Builder read the troparion for the departed, I had to ask him to stop and read it again. How could I have missed it before?

O Thou Who by the depth of Thy wisdom, out of love for mankind, dost provide all things, and grantest to all that which is profitable...

I have been struggling with trusting God with some areas dear to my heart, and He has been so graciously reminding me of His Love and that He will provide all we need.

Thank you, O Lord, for giving me the gift of encouragement.


  1. A beautiful post and a beautiful photo. I think we all struggle with this at times. Thank you for encouraging us.

  2. Thanks for sharing this - I need it!

  3. I agree, the photo is wonderful.

    And, what a blessing! I also needed to hear it.
