Friendship: Mail a Thoughtful Card

Friends

 

When was the last time you browsed through the card section at your local pharmacy or super store??  The choices are amazing these days.

I love to read them and think of people that I know.  But, that’s usually as far as I have gone.  I typically don’t and haven’t taken that thought all the way to fruition.  I have to wonder why not.  If a card makes me think of a certain person, why don’t I buy the card and send it to them??  It’s not that I don’t care about that person, so why do I stop and not follow through??

I have to guess that there are a few reasons.  The first one to come to mind is that “my friend is too busy to bother”, and then I think that maybe I’m too busy to write in the card, address the envelope, put a stamp on it and walk to the mailbox (go to the post office) and actually send the card.  HMMMM??

I recently was going through a box of papers {more on that later this week, (hint!)} and found 3 cards that I had bought for certain people, addressed the envelopes and then never wrote them out or mailed them.  SO, OK, this is not a new resistance for me.

My challenge for you today is to go to a store, pick out a card, write it out, address it and mail it.  I am going to do the same thing.  I have a friend that I miss dearly and haven’t taken the time she deserves to reach out to her, so NOW IS THE TIME!!  No Excuses!!

To building your friendships!

Faith: Have a get-together

When was the last time you made plans to fellowship with other believers?  Do you tend to wait for someone else to “make plans”?  Why not take the reins and make plans yourself.

When we make plans to get together with other, we are gifting them the time to connect and relate to others.  Some people feel very uncomfortable making plans while others of us are “Master” event planners.

No matter which category you fall into, you should be watching for the opportunities God puts before you to fellowship with others.  It could be a “small group bible study” or meeting for coffee and snacks after Church.

Keep your eyes and heart open for those chances to get together that present themselves over the next few weeks.  Summer is a great time for informal gatherings, and a great chance to get to know each other a little better.
