Ding! Ding! There is a bell near our front door. When it dings, often times it means a card or letter from back home has arrived. The girls run to the door and squeal with delight when they see the happy envelopes. It is a delightful experience for all of us. The stream of cards, letters, and notes from home have buoyed us up on days we were sinking. Though none of you could have known it, the timing of when each arrives is perfect. Thank you. Thank you for your time given to us by finding, writing, and sending each card.
I want to encourage each of you to write down a note to someone today. It does not have to be to us! It could be the teacher down the hallway, the gal at the coffee shop you see each morning, or your pastor. Tell them something you appreciate about them. It could be one sentence. Just write it…and give it to them. You have no idea how much it means to get unexpected encouragement at the perfect time.
