This is 30 days of Encouragement month, on “Positive and Encouraging” K-Love Radio. I’m choosing to encourage my Mother.
Still teaching after forty years, and greatly admired and esteemed by her community, my 84-year-old cherished Mother continues to develop the young minds of ESE children at the elementary level.
She attends First Baptist in Starke Florida, where she has been Sunday School Director, for over forty years.
She is always giving, wherever she sees a need. She buys nothing for herself, save for her absolute necessities.
I want to encourage her, because her husband of over fifty years, went home, to be with the Lord, just over 2 years ago.
He was laid to rest on Memorial Day, which was quite fitting since he was a War Veteran.
Dad served his country proudly, in the Navy for forty-one years, four of those, in Vietnam.
When he passed, my Mother was eighty- two. Though in appearance, dexterity, and sharpness of mind, she still passes for sixty.
But, as seen in numerous cases, when a spouse, primarily a husband, dies, it can have a drastic change in the dynamics of the surviving spouses’ life. In essence, it seems as though, her life as she knew it, is declining.
I plan to encourage her with more compliments, flowers, without being transparent.
I aspire to be there for her more, whenever needed. She is certainly, deserving of so much more.
Who can you encourage this month?

l began this ministry, through the promptings of the Holy Spirit, to tell my story in book and film, to the younger generation, by sharing my testimony of having gone through the same struggles, that they themselves may be facing, or may encounter in their futures. T This site, was originally planned to show the progress and process of the vision of the film, I was given, and is dedicated to those that are lonely, hurting, and looking for “Hope”, in what seems like a “hopeless life”, in a “hopeless world”. That being the film's theme...based on my and other's, true stories... It was originally going to be based on the story of MY life, but God also, has other plans, that will now include your stories, along with those same feelings of despair, pain, and the misery, of loneliness and isolation, that comes with the thoughts and feelings, of "not understanding my place in this world". The feelings, of utter isolation, being or feeling neglected by others. Dismissed, misunderstood; possibly, the worst part, and feeling of all… "No direction…very seldom a turn". ...Except, for that little spark of…hope. It was the ONLY feeling. that allowed me, that occasional breath. That life sometimes, afforded . I found HOPE...THEN, the answer....OUR ANSWER... LOVE. And LOVE, has a name. His Name... is JESUS. (I would love to hear your stories, for possible inclusions for the Feature Film. Also, any questions, or concerns, including prayer requests.) Email me: loveisstronger.lovewinsfilm@gmail.com God Bless You. May you find Hope in Him, today. - H. Bradley Colston
