My sister sent me one last year when I was going through a particularly rough time, and the verse on it was about the strength of an oak tree. I wept as I read it, because it spoke exactly to what I needed to hear at that moment. That card will be in my "stuff to keep" pile forever, because I will remember how God used it to assure me that He was with me, that I might bend but I would not break, and that He would be my strength.
I love sending cards - it's a simple, inexpensive, yet powerful ministry. Knowing how I have felt being the recipient of cards that really spoke to me, I love the possibility that a card I send will get to the intended person just when they most need it.
Upon my request, Dayspring sent me a beautiful card pack with a magnificent card holder/organizer so that I will have no excuse to ever miss another birthday, anniversary, or important holiday again! (DaySpring gave me the free product to review and all opinions stated are my own.) I chose the Holley Gerth Hope and Encouragement 10-card assortment, and they are lovely in every way. The theme for January's card packs is encouragement, and I will be using the cards to send to special women in my life who are champions in what they do in their lives, their homes, their workplaces and their families.
Enjoy, and happy sending!
