Are you discouraged? What are the bricks in the wall surrounding you today?
That's where the discouragement lies - in the silence.
I was blessed by a blogging friend as I read her post of discouragement (read it here) today. I've been blessed by the faith of friends who are fighting for the life of their child. People who refuse to stand, look at the wall, and give up.
I poured into her the hope of her future, the possibilities ahead of her, her own skills, and the shortcomings of others. I saw the countenance on her face change, lifted from discouragement to hope. She smiled.
