Maybe you saw this floating around the internet:
Snail mail may someday disappear; until then I will squeal when I get a letter from a friend.
Remember chain letters? Remember pen pals? Remember having to wait a week until you heard from a friend or family member?
It’s a dying art. Maybe that’s why getting a letter means so much. Maybe it’s because words are powerful anyway, and it just means so much more when you know the other person took the time to handwrite those words and send the letter in the mail. Maybe it’s because we know they were intentional when they sent it.
Do you want to make a difference? Send a letter.
Send a letter to a friend you’ve lost touch with. Send a letter to a friend who is traveling. Send a letter to someone who you thinks needs to hear words of life.
This week, sit down and write a letter. Go out and buy stamps. And by this next Monday, have the letter waiting in the mailbox to zoom across town.
And then tell me about it in the comments.
