I am terrible at sending thank you cards. I think of it and then somehow it doesn’t get done. A month goes by, then I remember and think it’s too late. Now it’s a new year and I’m thinking back and remembering how blessed I have been. Thinking about the people who God has graced my life with. I’m sure I said thank you, that’s easy, but taking the extra time to write the card is a little more work. (Laziness is another fault of mine.)
Writing is important to me because I have a hard time expressing myself in person and do better at writing it down. I am able to take the time to process my thoughts and put them together in a way that is more meaningful than the words that come out in the moment.
I have a many thank you’s that should have been written months ago. Should I just forget it and add it to the list of things I thought of and didn’t follow through on? Will they say, “Well it’s about time she thanked me!” Probably not, hopefully it will be an encouragement. In fact, as I write these cards I hope to not just thank them for what they did, but remind myself and them, it’s by God’s grace.
I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus -I Corinthians 1:4
My goal this month is to start sending those thank you notes. When this month is over there will be more to be thankful for, more of God’s grace. His grace never stops and neither should my thankfulness.
