A possible encouragement

Imagine this: You walk outside to check the mail and instead of finding more bills and advertisements, inside you find a handwritten note from a friend. Wouldn't that be something very special to find?


Here's a challenge for YOU. Think of a person in your life who could use some encouragement this week. Maybe it's a grandparent, a friend, a sibling, a parent, a friend, a pastor- whoever! Why not sit down sometime today (or whenever) and write out a note for him/her. I know I've been blessed many times in my life to find such a treat in my mailbox.

I'm going to take part in my own challenge, but I'm not sure yet who I'll pick...

Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

I love this idea! I'm terrible at actually sitting down and writing something by hand, but it is so wonderful to get that card in the mail. I still remember several I've gotten from you!

Sarah, thanks for the reminder! I made a card this afternoon for a friend of mine in Malawi who could use a pick-me-up.
