Over the past several years, I have had an amazing opportunity to be a part of the Sonshine Ministry at our church and school. This ministry sends cards to people in our congregation for all different occasions.
You can't imagine the power of a card with simple sweet sentiments to reassure a person that they are not alone in this world. A card says someone cares, someone is praying for you, someone took the time to let you know you matter. I know, I've received several of these cards when I had been going through some really tough stuff. It reached deep in my heart and sparked hope. Our school gets notes of appreciation all the time from recipients of the cards created by our students. The notes bring humble tears that a card meant that much to someone.
There are so many ways to get involved in sending cards. Find a soldier to write to, someone in hospice, a person recovering in Teen Challenge, a note to encourage a teacher, or just a thinking of you card to someone special in your life. It could be the exact thing they needed that day.
