I was in the card aisle picking out a birthday card and I happened to notice the encouragement card section. For some reason I was drawn to that area and picked up a card that expressed exactly how I feel about my friend, Wendy.
When I got home wrote a quick note to her in the card and put it in the mail. A few days later I received this email:
Thank you, my dear friend, for the card you sent me. I’ve had an extremely hard week at work with lots of personnel issues and my accounting software had a big failure which cost us days of extra work. That card just was like the Balm of Gilead – soothing to my weary soul.
I appreciate you right back and love you.
Take time today to write a note to a friend. You never know how your note may make their day.
When I asked Wendy if I could have her permission to share what she wrote she told me:
I know you are ALWAYS there for me – no doubt in my mind. Thank you for listening to God’s prompt and reaching out to me – it really did touch my spirit.
What are you waiting for?
PS The day I wrote this post I received an encouragement card from my dear friend Gaye. How perfect is that?!
