Blessing to you All,
I received this reminder in my In box this week. The Random Act Of Kindness Foundation, to which I subscribe, is making July 2021 letter writing month. It made me stop and reflect on how few letters I actually write these days. Perhaps it is a sign of the times in that we are now so digital and just send a quick email, or a shorter text, or and even shorter one line tweet! And yet, I think it is true to say that most of us still enjoy finding a letter or a card in our mailboxes! How nice it is to open something that isn't a bill or junk mail. It makes us feel special, cared for, and loved. Sometimes the smallest action can make the biggest impact!
So, I am offering you a challenge!
This month, choose a name from our church membership that you don't know too well, and send them a card, a letter, or even a postcard from your vacation.
I also invite you to do this activity with someone from outside our church family.
Sending a personal note is a way of sharing God's love with others, and let's face it - the world right now needs more love letters than ever!
Remember " Kindness is going outside of your comfort zone to let people know they are important and loved."

p.s. feel free to let me know if you receive any surprise letter and we will post it in the newsletter!
Each Wednesday we send out an inspirational message.
