Since I was a young boy I've always enjoyed writing letters, notes and cards. I had several pen pals as a teenager.
Back in the mid 70's the Lord led me to launch a letter-writing ministry of encouragement to athletes called Epistle Sports Ministries. Although my target audience was professional and amateur athletes, I also wrote many letters to people in all walks of life.
I've been the beneficiary of hundreds of cards and letters. I still have boxes with those letters in them. They meant so much to me and I often to back and read them over again. As the graphic with this post states, "A Kind Word Always Brings Cheer."
Just today I sent a card to two friends who needed some cheer.
Let's do our part in keeping the lost art of written correspondence alive.
