It's a reality now.....

I've shared that I've had a dream of starting a card ministry at my church but didn't quite know how to get it off the ground.
Well I am happy to report that as of yesterday it is a reality. We mailed out 9 cards to members of the church who submitted a prayer on our prayer requests. Of course this isn't everyone who put one down but if we continue to do some each week, more and more people are bound to get a little smile in their mailboxes.
It was just so amazing to me to feel the happiness of a dream coming into light.........

Hey - Do you need more cards? I have a bunch of cards and cardfronts that I've gotten in swaps, as RAKs, etc. and I really need to go through them and pass some on. I have been looking for something like this to donate them to. Let me know if you can use them. You can email me at sairabee at yahoo dot com. ;)
