This is the same post I did on my main blog today and in just a few hours I have had so much feedback that I felt like I needed to repost it here.
This may seem like a CRAZY POST , but this was on my heart today....and I cannot get it off my mind....I have posted before my thoughts on the importance of SNAIL MAIL. You know that many of my GIVEAWAYS are what my customers call "The Card Box"! It is an enabler...if you have cards on hand you are MUCH MORE likely to send them. You think of a person that needs encouragement and by the time you get to a store where cards are, you have forgotten. THIS IS ALL COMING from the QUEEN of email. Then I read this post Kelly wrote on snail mail! CONFIRMATION....Nothing brings a smile like a note or card in the mail that someone is thinking about you or praying for you.
WE probably will NEVER know when a card helped a friend make it through the day. We know lots of peoples problems, but I am convinced we have no idea the hurts that are behind the best looking doors. I work in homes that have FABULOUS doors. Sometimes I leave thinking if others really knew the hurt, the fear and the hopelessness behind that door, they would not envy the big house. I am a card sender....at least every few nights I ask God who I can encourage...this is not bragging...I have cards within arms reach, so its not hard. I cannot tell you the times that someone has emailed me or even sent me a note telling me that they were going through the trial of their life and the card made their day.
PROOF enough for me that snail mail is still IN! I do not write long messages, most of the time the card says it all and I just sign it..I realized I just posted last night, so this posts comments will go in the drawing tomorrow night also....Because I love to give, but more than that, BECAUSE I want to HELP YOU BLESS someone else,
I will draw 3 names on Friday night and each of those bloggers will receive a gift of cards....I have NEVER known a time when I have personally known more people that are in HUGE battles and in need of a little encouragement. What about you? I REALLY want this to be BIG. I want SNAIL MAIL to become popular again. Send a new reader or readers and let me know and I will enter your name 5 extra times...MAIL SOMEONE A CARD THIS WEEK!
If you missed this post from last night, there are some CUTE pictures ....
