Dictionary.com: Word of the Day

I checked my gmail this morning and saw this
“Dictionary.com Word of the Day- edify: to instruct and improve.”
“God uses gmail too,” was my initial reaction, but what a good reminder first thing in the morning. I work in a cube environment; you know similar to Office Space, so whenever someone comes to my desk I try to take every opportunity to be positive and say encouraging words. Sometime I catch myself “messing” with people and I have to remind myself to redirect and remember what I am here for. I need to strive to also have a positive attitude, use kind uplifting words and encourage people. Daily, I have so many opportunities to edify; I just have to consciously choose to.

“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.” Romans 14:19

God Bless and have a great weekend.

true true - God uses everything...

I thought I was too negative at work and was trying to work on this. But before I made an active effort to change, I had a coworker tell me how much she appreciates my positivity, upbeat, easy going spirit. She mentioned this today that she feeds off of this from me... not to toot my horn, but sometimes I'm surpised when people see these things in my life when I'm just focusing on the one thing I did wrong.

Be a light my friend. We are a bunch of light bulbs =)
