Reaching Out to One Another
I made a promise to myself, somewhere around March 19. I wanted to send a personal note to each church household. I began with energy and excitement, and quickly ran out of blank cards. When more arrived, I began anew. At work, in front of the TV at home, on sleepless nights when thoughts of my father kept me up. Every few days, I mailed a stack, praying that someone in that stack would smile when they opened the envelope (not licked, of course!) About a month later, someone texted," We received your blank envelope today. Thank you!" I replied, "I wonder who got yours?" What we do to bring a smile to another, cannot help but make us smile. That person eventually received, with a day between each, two notes and a postcard, each with a partial sentence. We need not be perfect to reach out!
