Homemaking Mondays: A Reason to Smile


Hello! 
Isn't it lovely that no matter what happens in life, that the Lord can always bring
to mind something that can give us a reason to smile. 
One thing that makes me smile are little notes just because.

 I find that in our society today that little notes give people great pleasure. 
Whether expected (as in a birthday) or just out of the blue.
It doesn't need to be handmade or fancy.
Just the knowledge that someone took time out of their life for you.

I was talking to a sweet older Christian lady that I know.  
She isn't able to get out and see people as much as she used to.
She says that just little phone calls or notes in the mail 
cheer her heart so very much. 


I got one of those sweet out of the blue cards in the mail from a friend this week.
Just to know that I was thought of and that she took the time to send me this note 
made me feel very loved and cherished.  

Do you take the time to let others know you are thinking of them? 
Perhaps it is a shut in or elderly person that you know could use the encouragement.
That they know they are not forgotten. 

Or really anyone could be blessed by the simple act of being sent a note, a phone call, a card. 
Are you willing to take the time to do that?
To add this simple act to your homemaking day?
If you do, it will be greatly treasured and appreciated. 
Just a little simple act of kindness.

Love and Prayers,
Jennifer

Loved the homemade notelet, making it even more special. There is nothing nicer than an unexpected letter/note or phonecall.

Dearest Jennifer, I was just inspired reading your word of reminding me to send out a little note to someone today! When I get a card or letter in the mail I will save it until I have a quiet moment and make myself a cup of tea and to read it in the spirit that it was sent. I have found that even a comment on one of my blog post can lift me up. Truly love to be encouraged myself and when we encourage and share a word with another is just a gift of our time. Thanks for the sweet reminder Hugs, Roxy

Letter/note-writing has become a lost art in this digital age. As much as I appreciate the convenience of e-mails or texting, nothing beats getting fun mail!

It is nice, whether in the mail or online ;) You can always find something to smile about in anything, sometimes you just have to look for it or God will show you!
