Hello everyone. A while back I needed a Dry Erase Board for our Homeschool. I usually put our date, scripture, and events on the board. I sometimes use it for messages and reminders. The only thing was I didn't want a big old dry erase board in my kitchen. I took a picture frame from WalMart and took the back off. Leaving only the frame and glass. It was $10. I then took Burlap and a good old hot glue gun and made a Burlap border around the frame to cover it. I love Burlap and it fits my Country Cottage kitchen style so it looks great. My kids like to write on it sometimes. As you can tell my Hannah wrote a sweet message. "God will heal my mom!" As you all know I have been sick but I am getting better. Praise the Lord.
I was blessed with a surprise today. I had a sweet Sister in our new church mail me a card of encouragement. I don't know her super well but I thought it was so thoughtful. I love it. I love a good old handwritten letter and card. So many people rely on social media or texting. The age of writing a letter, card, or even picking up the phone is rare these days. The card is so lovely. It is nice to know someone is thinking about me and praying for me.
I would love to have a pen pal. When I was growing up I had a few. One from Japan. Then when I was in my early 20's a friend of mine and I wrote each other when I moved off. It was sweet. She would use old traditional notebook paper. I loved it. Maybe one day I can find me a pen pal again. *Smiles*
There is something about a handwritten letter or a card. I love them. It adds a smile to your day. I use to send people in the church little cards of encouragement without putting my name on it. I used to have a little drawer filled with cards and during my quiet time I always prayed if there was someone I could write to. I need to do this again.
Do you write letters? Do you have a pen pal or a special person you write? Do you send special cards?
I hope you all have a lovely day!!!
