Waiting for a letter …

“Like a cool drink of water when you’re worn out and weary is a letter from a long-lost friend. Proverbs 25:25

Today I asked permission to share this FB post from a young woman friend from England:

“I wrote a handwritten letter to a family member last week and got a reply in under 48 hours.  It felt JOYOUS to have an ‘actual’ letter. I didn’t realise that I’d missed the dwindling act over the last couple of decades.   My letter wasn’t fancy… just a few sides of A4 torn out of my workbook with big scrawly writing.  Putting pen to paper was such a great feeling and getting a reply – EVEN better… If you fancy getting a letter (it’s worth it… I promise), send me a message on fb private messaging and I’ll give you my address and we can exchange scribings.”

One needs to make it a priority to put love into someone’s day, even something like a hand-written letter in their mailbox, just like Lynsey suggests. Thanks, Lynsey for sharing.

Help us, Lord, to value what is dear to our hearts—something as simple as a letter. Amen.
