I see you, Sis


A few days ago I got this nice package in my mail. It came from Mari of Out of Deep Waters. (Don't you love the way she spells her name?) ;)
She sent this cute note card she made and some cards for me to write and send out. They say "I see you, Sis" and on the bottom it ways "Each one Inspires. Encourage one Individual".
The cards are made by Lekeshia, who says the concept came from this verse:
"For whoever does the will of my Father in Heaven, the same is my brother and sister, and Mother" Matthew 12:50.
When we see others doing God's will, we need to stop a moment and encourage them. There are many people who are doing God's work and may not feel like they are getting anywhere. A simple note could make a big difference.
I'm not good at sending cards or notes, but I know how much I appreciate them when I receive them. I'm going to try harder!
If you are interested in some cards to send out yourself, you can order them from Lekeshia. Her number is 404-642-2300.
Thanks, Mari!

Thanks for the reminder! Years ago I used to send cards of encouragement often - absolutely loved doing it. Now with e-mail and facebook etc. I don't do hand-written notes any more or at least very seldom. These cards looks lovely!

That is a wonderful idea and the cards are adorable. I'm a big believer in encouraging others, but none of us does it enough. How nice that she designed cards specifically for that purpose! And it is adorable how she spells her name! =:~D

What a great incentive to write more notes. They look lovely!

Those are just beautiful and so inspiring, they do make you want to start writing notes and letters more :)

Very cute cards!

I'm trying to get better at it myself. I actually mailed out two cards to friends today...and guess what? I got two in the mail myself this afternoon. It really does put a smile on my face.

Hugs,

Lovely cards! I used to be so good at sending cards -- birthday, anniversary, thank yous... -- but I am sadly out of practice these days. Not just the internet is the culprit; living 6000 miles from everyone and the correspondingly higher postage makes it impractical to send them. When we know someone traveling back to the states, we usually take advantage and send back a bunch of thank you cards as well as letters to mail there. I plan on stocking up on cards and pretty stationary when we go on furlough next year. I'll keep Lekeshia in mind!

What a nice gift and the spelling of her name is nice too!=)

I bought a card for my neighbor who has done so much for us during Alan's surgery. The card was wrapped in cellophane. After taking off the wrap I wrote a nice note inside the card. I closed the card, then couldn't open it again because the glue they used on the cellophane had glued the card shut!
The only thing left to do was to cut the edge of the card to get it open. After giving her the card, I had a little explaining to do. Hahahaha!

Hello everyone, I am Lekeshia the sub-creator of I see you sis. Its so inspiring to see other women with my heart. Women who are willing to sow good seeds in God's precious vessels. We all need encouragement to make it in this fading world. I strongly believe, this simple act of encouragement, will humble the world and sprout new life into those who write and receive. Thanks for sharing your comments about I see you sis. You wouldn't believe how grateful I am for you all. I am blessed and highly favored. So are you. Muah!

-I see you sis
