I absolutely love sending & receiving snail mail. So when I came across the Love Notes Postcard Project a few weeks ago, I knew that I had to give it a try.
Here is the description:
“In a world that has quickly grasped hold of instant communication via text messaging and social media, the hostess, Jennifer Belthoff, encourage people to slow down, pick up a piece of paper and a pen and write someone a note.
It doesn’t have to be a long and lengthy letter; a few short words let’s someone know you were thinking about them and that you care. This type of love is needed in a big way. It reminds others that they aren’t alone and brings a ray of sunshine to their day. Written to someone you know or even to an unsuspecting stranger your words hold value and bring joy.
Hosted Quarterly. You will be paired up with another individual in the group for this three-week project.
Because sending and receiving snail mail is not a thing of the past, but something that can bring a bit of sunshine to your mailbox.”
Participants are from all walks of life (race, religion, nationality, age etc) who share a common goal of sending love and encouragement to a stranger using a simple postcard. I saw this a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with not only my partner but also with everyone who handled the postcards along the way .
I ended up exchanging cards with 3 other ladies (more on that at a later date). Below are notes that I either sent or received (plus a couple of extras). Each and every one arrived at the perfect time.
God is so good to me!
I look forward to participating again next quarter.
Jennifer Belthoff (the hostess) is a self-described LOVE Champion who believes that we aren’t meant to travel this journey alone. Through writing, storytelling and snail mail she guides others as they excavate their truths and cultivate the paths they choose to travel. Check out her website or on Instagram @jbelthoff.
