Your Fave WTG?

1 Thessalonians 5:11 [NIV] says, "Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." In the new year, I resolve to use more of these specific, immediate, and sincere phrases [taken from a pamphlet called "97 Words of Encouragement for Children" in the Children's Medical Center in Akron, Ohio]. Which is your fave phrase for encouragement?
