Coffee for your Heart #5

February 5, 2014 Coffee for your heart, Create Serenity 2

Today we’re kicking off the new series I told you about last week Coffee-for-Your-Heart-150called Coffee for Your Heart. The concept is simple: I’m asking you to pour out a little love with your words every Wednesday. You’re an encourager and you’re going to be fabulous at this! I’m so excited! Holly Gerth @


Encouragement for Jan 29th:

What are the encouraging words you want to hear when you’re having a hard day?

When I’m having a bad day I want to rant. Sometimes scream and get all the frustration out. When I am really upset I cry. It’s just something that happens. The tears flow even before I realize how upset I really am! And most of the time I just don’t care because all that matters is getting the frustration out.

The most encouraging words, to me, are no words at all. Knowing that someone will listen to my rant, giving me their ears for a few short minutes (or sometimes not so short) means everything to me. Sometimes I do not want to hear that everything will be ok because really, how do we know? But one thing that I do know is that I have this person that is willing to be there for me, that thinks I’m special enough to give me their time, even while I complain.

My mother-in-law told me something fabulous the other day. It will not last. She didn’t say things will get better or anything like that. She just said that the day will end and with it the problems. And they always, ALWAYS, do. And I think if I were to hear anything, and if you need to hear anything in your darkest time, it might be this…

Tomorrow is a new day.

It also helps to hear a joke… so here’s something I found on Facebook… Enjoy!

    Oh you made me laugh today! Thanks for the joke. It was interesting to see that you said what you need to hear on a hard day is nothing. I wrote a post for the link and it just didn’t flow and it was about not needing someone to fix it, but just someone to walk along beside me. Acknowledge that it’s hard and just be there. I deleted that post and started again with the one I published, but am glad you found the words to say one of the things I was trying to say. 🙂

      Thank you! This one was harder for me to figure out because it’s so true, sometimes you don’t need someone to fix the problem but that doesn’t mean we don’t need someone to help us through the problem!
