I opened the mail and there it was a huge box of “Simply Marvelous” cards and a beautiful card box for storing and sorting cards. My heart soared, as I remembered how I love cards! When (in)courage asked if I’d like the opportunity to blog about DaySpring cards in exchange for some — I jumped at it. I mean, pounced! It was almost like Christmas.
As I sat there with all these cards, my mind began to reflect back. I tried to recall when the last time was I received a hand-written note. Not a text, facebook post, or message, but a real hand-penned note.
How about you, when was the last time you received a handwritten card in the mail? Come on, do tell? Was it a blessing to your day?
Chances are, it’s been awhile since we are all so internet savy now. And I think we’ll all agree that when those hand-written cards come these days they are sure treasures. I don’t know about you, but I keep most of my cards in a huge Blessing Box I have. Love to reread them ever so often.
But as I sat staring at the cards wondering who to write and if a little card would make a difference, I wondered who needed encouragement, a prayer note, or just a note to let them know I was thinking of them. Oh my, the names quickly out grew my cards. . . my friend who just went through a divorce, a friend whose daddy just went to walk with Jesus, a friend struggling, and a friend who just conquered a milestone. Yes, everyone needs encouragement!
I was so blessed to receive this collection free in exchange for my honest review, but I want to bless you too. For every comment, facebook share or retweet (make sure you mention @alenesnodgrass) of this post (in)courage and DaySpring are offering one of YOU $20 off a DaySpring order of $20 or more. Yes, we’re doing a Give Away!!!!
A random drawing will be held on Monday, January 30th (4 days from now) and the winner posted. The winner then will be contacted via email with the $20 gift code from DaySpring. When using the code, the winner will be responsible for shipping charges. The code expires on 12/31/2012 so you have almost a year to use it.
Do you love receiving cards in the mail?
What has been the best encouraging card you’ve received?
Oh yes, do tell!
