I got to catch up on e-mail this past week and one of the e-mails I received was from a girl that was in my first student ministry over 15 years ago. She had lost track of where I was and found me through the article in the Naperville Glancer about Sue being a “Marvelous Mom”. What was really cool was that she told me she still had an encouraging note that I wrote her when she graduated from High School. Wow! You never know how powerful a few handwritten words can be to someone. So, I’m declaring today WRITE AN ENCOURAGING NOTE DAY! Before today is over pick out one person who you will jot a note offering them some affirmation or encouragement. You never know the lasting impact of an encouraging note!
