  1. What beautiful words of encouragement! Sometimes I do think that we’ve lost the art of letter writing which is sad. There is just something about getting a card or note in the “snail mail” that touches us like none other. It’s tangible…you can touch it, hold it, even tuck it away to pull out and look at again and again. Thanks for the urging, this morning, to share encouragement with others.

  2. Eloquent words of encouragement. This fast paced society has forgotten the practice of writing letters and isn’t pushing it on the younger generation. I love receiving encouragement. Thus I constantly send out cards to wish you well, tell you I’m thinking of you, whatever!! I know it will brighten your day. I just wish the younger generation would follow suit!!
    Blessings 🙂

  3. for those of you who might need to remember that God’s grace is there with you i pray that today you will be given a sign the i love you and that God loves you bigger.

  4. I agree with Bev. I have saved letters going back many years and from time to time I get them out of my bedside drawer and read them. I am blessed every time. It doesn’t matter how long ago the letter was written, it comes alive again. Thanks for the encouragement. I have written a letter to a dear friend from my single days and sadly have lost her address since I wrote it. ” Lord, Please help me to find that address and get it away in the mail today.”

  5. Amen! One of the things I love about my church is that members are very free with sending one another notes of encouragement, get well wishes and the like. It’s a warmth that helps me understand better why we refer to our “church family,” and I cherish it.

  6. Notes of the heart, one to another, are priceless. One has taken time – stop, sit & pen a soul/heart-to heart message. Text/Facebook post/e-mail appreciated but are quick & convenient. A hand written note is spirit & soul on paper. Write one today.
