I consider them to be “the usual” response for many of us when we see a need. Illness? Send a Get Well card. Death? Sympathy card. There’s nothing at all wrong with that. In fact, there’s something very right about reaching out to let someone know we care.
Some artsy-creative people, however, like to take “sending a card” a step further. One reader of this blog recently wrote…
A lady (who became a dear friend) sent us a handmade card thanking us for visiting a Sunday School class. It was something she loves to do, and probably didn’t take too much time, but it was very meaningful to me!
In this day of email and instant messaging, I’m always blessed to receive ANY kind of card, but when someone takes the time to turn scraps of paper and embellishments into a handmade card … or write a personal note in a store-bought card … it’s always a special treat! I suspect you agree.
There was a Blogland woman a couple of years ago who took the handmade card even one step further. She had a ministry of sharing tags with people and once sent me this beautiful handmade tag. It was such a passion of hers that she made and gave away her wonderful tags. Wouldn’t it be nice to make some … then share the blessing with those within your circle of influence?
