I received a most important message yesterday--one of the most important I've ever received.

 And I didn't deserve it--I really, really didn't.

 It made me feel really, really good though.

 Actually, it really, really made my day.

 And, well, it was from someone very, very--I mean really, really important--yes, it was.

 This special person has many talents and gifts from God--

 Not the least of which is writing tremendously encouraging letters to people he knows.

 Quite a few of the residents at the Ranch have letters from this important person hung on their bedroom walls.

 Well, I guess I've left you hanging long enough.

 Are you ready for this?

 Are you really, really ready cause it is gonna knock your socks off!

As we were finishing up our time together yesterday, the six year old son of the young lady I mentor came around the corner with a hug and this:

God uses such simple things to encourage others.

Have you encouraged someone today?

This six year old did--and I will NEVER forget it.

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.  Hebrews 3:13
