Do you get E-mail?
No, not the kind of e-mail you get on the computer. Not electronic mail.
I have been getting cards in the mail daily, and let me tell you it makes my day. It is encouraging. I open each and every card with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. It is really hard to describe.
The photo above is just the top of the pile. I have saved all of them. I will wrap a ribbon around them, and keep them for who knows how long.
I look at all the cards, and I think of the time that it took to sit down, write a little something, address the envelope, place a stamp on it, and finally mail it. Then I think about the other day when I sat down to write thank you cards; it really didn’t take that long. Let’s think about this. There are 1440 minutes in a day. Let’s subtract 480 minutes for sleeping, because they say we need that much. Then we can subtract another 480 for those that work, and we are left with 480 minutes in the day. Writing a card would take 10 minutes out of your day, maybe.
The Bible tells us to encourage one another. Look it up.
1 Thessalonians 4:18
1 Thessalonians 5:11,14
2 Thessalonians 2:17
I could sit here and type out all of the scriptures for you, but I would much rather you pick up your Bible and thumb through the pages to find them yourselves. Not because I don’t want to type them out, but because I want to encourage you to read your Bible.
How would you feel about receiving some E-Mail, Encouraging Mail that is? I have this thought swirling around in my brain. If you would like to receive an encouraging card or letter occasionally let me know. Send me a good ol’ email (electronic mail), and I will make it happen. I will respond to each of your emails with the details of the E-Mail idea.
But for now, go out and encourage someone. It doesn’t have to be by mailing them a card; there are many ways to encourage others.
How do you encourage others?
