I never noticed these words and phrases before but if you look close you find encouraging words and phrases on the HALLS cough drop wrapper.
Below are some encouraging and motivating words and phrases.

Expecting something different maybe like a picture or image of an EASTER bunny. Sorry to disappoint but today is a special day for me and I celebrate it with everything I have. Since Sparks comes a day after EASTER I thought it would be nice to do an EASTER SPARKS. My encouragement to everyone comes this week through an EASTER POEM I wrote on Saturday March 31, 2018 and also through an invitation. Here’s wishing everyone a very happy EASTER and a very happy PASSOVER. Remember stay positive and encourage others. What a difference it’ll make in their lives and your life too.
POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART
WRITTEN ON MARCH 31, 2018
EASTER Is getting together with family and friends
EASTER Is celebration and reflection
EASTER Is children and the EASTER bunny
EASTER Is chocolate bunnies
EASTER IS coloring eggs and hiding them
EASTER IS a picture with the EASTER bunny
EASTER IS a time for making memories
EASTER IS a time for remembering the
Real reason why we celebrate EASTER and /or
Passover and it is because of the RESURRECTION OF JESUS.
MY INVITATION TO EVERYONE:
I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY EASTER AND A HAPPY PASSOVER. ALSO, IF YOU HAVEN’T ACCEPTED JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR YET I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BECAUSE IT WILL BE THE BEST THING THAT YOU WILL EVER DO. TRUST ME I KNOW. ACCEPTING JESUS IS THE BEST THING I EVER DID AND WHEN YOU ACCEPT JESUS IT WILL BE THE BEST THING YOU EVER DID TOO.

MY SPARKS FOR THE WEEK IS ENCOURAGING ADVICE. THIS IS ADVICE WE ALL SHOULD TAKE AND REMEMBER.My encouraging advice to everyone is to remember that we’ve all failed at one time or another in our lifetime and if you haven’t failed yet you eventually will. When you do fail you will feel like giving up. My suggestion to you is DON’T GIVE UP!! How is this encouraging? It’s encouraging because failure at something we desire to have or want really, really bad means one thing and one thing only and that is that we are headed in the right direction to get what we want and sometimes we find that we are blessed with something better than we wanted. Also, always remember that the Big named people at Big named companies didn’t get to the top overnight. Another thing to remember is that they had to fail multiple times before making it big so don’t worry if you fail multiple times. http://mcguffysreader.com started this project and tries to spread encouragement weekly. She also invites anyone who wants to help her spread encouragement. If you like this post and/or site please use the contact form and it will be put in manually. Thanks In Advance.
While I was thinking about what to do for Sparks I had a thought and that thought was why don’t you do something with the meaning of encouragement. Of course I tried and tried to come up with something else but all I could think of was wanting Spring to get here and the sunshine and the pretty flowers to stay for a while. Then I said to myself, flowers that’s it I’ll do it on flowers. So I looked up on the internet to see what flowers are associated with encouragement and friendship and this is what I found. I have included their meanings as well.
ENCOURAGEMENT AND FRIENDSHIP FLOWERS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
Due to the fact of so many, furfriends, loved ones passing lately I made up a brief flower list for that to in honor of them.
FLOWERS OF SADNESS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
My information and some of my pictures are from Flower Meanings, A – Z Flower Dictionary and Flower Pictures , Flower Meanings Chart and Guide to Unique Gift Giving , Images of The Galax Flower and the Graphic Credit for the Purple Hyacinth goes to http://fineartamerica.com.
https://mcguffysreader.com/ has a project called Sparks post each week. I decided to join this project with McGuffy’s Reader to encourage others each week. My encouragement post is called ENCOURAGEMENT. On March 4, 2018, I was reading my morning devotions with the Lord and guess what? The devotional reading was called Dying for Encouragement. In a nutshell, it was about a corporate accountant who committed suicide and no-one knew why. He didn’t embezzle money and that made his co-workers wonder why until a note was found and that note simply said this: In thirty years I have never had one word of encouragement. I’m fed up. My ENCOURAGEMENT quotes and reading are: It may seem insignificant to say a word or two; but when we give encouragement, what wonders it can do! —K. DeHaan— My second ENCOURAGEMENT quote is: A word of encouragement can make the difference between giving up or going on. —Author Unknown— The reading for encouragement is Deuteronomy 3:23 – 29. So when you think your encouragement isn’t doing any good, think again. It is. When you encourage some someone make sure it is genuine encouragement(not flattery) and it will help others.
We all need encouragement daily and I found these encouraging words to be helpful and hope they are helpful and are an inspiration to you. Below is my Spark.
Today CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) are joining Annie from McGuffy’s Reader for Sparks. Sparks is a way to encourage people. This can be done through quotes, images, poems, pictures and etc…

Faith Is like a mustard seed
Small but willing and able
Waiting to be nurtured
Faith Is dreaming big
and doing what it takes
to reach your dreams.
Faith Is taking that leap
to build your own business.
Faith Is putting your trust
in a total stranger and
hoping your situation turns
out for the good.
Faith Is trusting and
believing in the unseen.
Hope is a rainbow that appears out of nowhere on a sunny day~Hope is a mentor supporting and encouraging you when others put you down~Hope is your parents who support you even though you have huge dreams~Hope is a stranger who befriends you and takes you under their wing~Hope is a dog that meets you at the door when you come home~Hope is a cat that warns you with its hissing and body language~Hope is a
sister that helps you out of ‘sticky’ situations~Hope is a loving family~Hope is knowing and teaching sign language to people who need and want to learn it~Hope is God.
So when your feeling down remember there is hope for you. Don’t let any anybody tell you differently.
