I purchased a magazine the other day that has all kinds of cool cards to make. I love scrapbooking and card making and don’t take time to do it as much as I would like. I thought to myself “I think I will start making a card each week and send it to someone special.”
I love getting cards and I love sending cards.
I looked at the front of the magazine and the title is “JUST CARDS!” I’m sure the meaning behind the name is “there are not any other kinds of crafts in this magazine – just cards.”
But I wonder how many times we start to send a card to someone and then think to ourselves, “it’s just a card. It doesn’t really matter.” But I’m telling you IT DOES MATTER.
In today’s world of technology where the easiest thing to do is send an email and a text message, a card in the mail means a whole lot.
It means you were thinking of that person.
It means you took time to pick out a card.
It means you took time to fill it out.
It means you took time to look up the mailing address.
It means you took time to purchase a stamp.
It means you took time to stop and put it in the mailbox.
I challenge you today to send one card each week for the next month. It doesn’t have to be homemade. Most every grocery store has cards. Just take the time to pick out an important person to send it to. Take time to choose the card carefully. Take time to write a few words. Take time to say a little prayer over the card before you send it asking God’s blessings on the recipient.
They are not JUST CARDS……….they are examples of a little extra touch of care. It’s a TLC – tender loving card! And who knows………maybe you will get one in return. And I bet you will realize then – it’s more than JUST A CARD!!
