While there are still many individuals "struggling" within the hospitality arena, there are thankfully those who still love their jobs, love being of service, and are able to maintain a balanced work schedule. These individuals are finding hope, support, and encouragement among those they work with and for.

From my own perspective, I have noticed that those who have a strong faith, seem to be approaching their work days, and life in general, with an attitude of gratitude and service.

This does not mean that they do not experience trials and tribulations. It does not mean that they do not have "struggles" in one or more areas of their lives. It does mean that they rely on their faith, and seek counsel from those who can offer some wisdom, grace, and guidance. Iron does indeed sharpen iron, and the fruit of the spirit shines ever so brightly.

"Suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character, and character hope." - Romans 5:4

In a previous blog post, I mentioned one of my favorite Bible verses - "a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." (Proverbs 25:11)

With so many individuals "struggling" within the hospitality arena with overwork, harsh demands, unreasonable expectations; along with the seemingly "never ending" staffing shortages, it does help when we can connect and share with others who understand what we may be going through.

We are all given a voice, and we can all make a difference each and every day with those within our sphere.

Support, hope, and encouragement does come from conversations that provide comfort and compassion.

"The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out." - Proverbs 20:5







We all understand the power of words. Choose wisely when it comes to communicating with others. One never knows what another may be going through, unless one is present, sensitive, and aware enough to just listen and choose words wisely. Comfort, compassion, and kindness do indeed go a long way!






"Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body." - Proverbs 16:24

"The right word at the right time is like a custom made piece of jewelry." - Proverbs 25:11

"Listening to good advice is worth much more than jewelry made of gold." - Proverbs 25:12

"The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing." - Proverbs 12:18

"The words of good people are a source of life." - Proverbs 10:11

If you do not know, possibly it is because you are not familiar with the Bible. This word is mentioned numerous times.

"The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly." - Proverbs 26:16

"The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied." - Proverbs 13:4

"Sluggards do not plow in season, so at harvest time they look but find nothing." - Proverbs 20:4




With so many continuing to not want to work, it is very perplexing to many. Is our society becoming one of "sluggards?"

Well, the most clarity we can gleen is from the Bible. The Bible is clear on work. If fact, the Bible mentions in two verses, not just one, the same truths:

"The one who works his land will have plenty of food, but whoever chases fantasies lacks judgment." - Proverbs 12:11

" The one who works his land will have plenty of food, but whoever chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty." - Proverbs 28:19



We all have gifts and talents, so I believe the plan should be to use your gifts and talents that you were born with, to build and plant one step at a time, while discerning what is a fantasy and what is not. To those who think "the grass is greener" elsewhere, the grass is greener where it is watered and nurtured.




We are here to be "good stewards" and to use our innate gifts to share with others, as well as support and encourage others in our spheres of influence to do the same.

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace." - 1 Peter 4:10

"A man's gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men." - Proverbs 18:16
