Intentional Living: Send It In A Letter

I’m trying to live with intention. To make every day count. To be deliberate about my relationships and my choices. And I’m also trying to leave a legacy of love for those who are important to me.
Can you remember the last time you got a greeting card via snail mail, for no reason at all? I can’t, unfortunately, but I’m willing to bet it came from my sweet sister.

A card that shows up in my mail box on a day that’s not my birthday or an anniversary or a holiday is always a wonderful surprise. Isn’t it terrific to know someone was thinking of you, just because, and took the time to write it down?

In an effort to live with intention and to let those around me know how important they are to me, I’m launching  my own personal greeting card campaign.
How will it work? Well, I’m glad you asked!
Each week for the remainder of 2012, I’m going to send a greeting card to someone I love for no reason other than to let them know I’m thinking about them.
Birthday cards don’t count. Holiday cards don’t count. It has to be a “for no reason at all” card. And it can’t be an e-card. It has to be a paper card sent through the US mail. You know, the old-fashioned way. 
I envision that my unsuspecting recipient will open up her {or his!} mailbox, see a colorful envelope with my name and return address, and upon opening it and reading the card, will smile and realize she is loved.
Will YOU join me in this challenge? Will you pledge to send one greeting card a week for the rest of the year? Think of the friends, family members, co-workers, and church members you can lift up with this simple little greeting card ministry!
And if you want really fabulous cards to send, I highly suggest Tiny Prints or Dayspring. Dayspring’s Heart Connection Card Club includes 10 amazing cards {per month} for an incredibly low price, and you even get a free gift for signing up.

So are you in? Will you commit to starting your own greeting card ministry? Who will you send your first card to this week?

    I do this and it makes me feel great! I have found tons of great cards at yard sales, and I stock up a few times a year. I was once told thath if I want something done for me, that I need to do the same for others. And who doesn’t love getting a card in the mail telling them they are important to you? Have a great weekend.

    Hmmmm … I like this idea! So many of the people that I would choose to send cards to are people from my online world though and I don’t have their addresses. I’ll have to work on that and see if I can find a solution but for now … I’m in! Thanks for the inspiration and motivation! I will send one tomorrow to Noelle, who is struggling with postpartum depression and a 6 month old baby girl with serious health issues.
