"We Encourage" - I Love Hannah

Well I's assuming that most of you have "met" my lovely friend Hannah over at Happy Days. If you haven't...I don't know what you are waiting for! Hannah is one of my favorite things about blogging! She always has an encouraging word for me and a great piece of scripture. What a gift!

She also had one of the best ideas ever, Pen Friends. Remember what it felt like to get a hand written letter in the mail from a dear friend? Or someone you were just getting to know? I love that feeling, but in this day and age {I know, I sound like a senior citizen, like a really old one} it doesn't seem to happen much.
In jumps Hannah to save the day with this amazing idea to pair up women to be Pen Friends! Brilliant, I know. The best part is I get to be Hannah's Pen Friend. I realize it seems like that was rigged but I assure you Hannah is much too honest for such shinanigans.
So today I want to encourage Hannah.
You are a ray of sunshine. I am blessed to know you and pray that this post will help others be blessed by the wonderful words you share on your blog.
I love you!

PS: I've had a letter for you done for 4 days but haven't gotten my booty to a mail box. Feel free to scold me.

Go check out Hannah's fabulousness!

Grab a button, link up and spread some encouragement!

I love Hannah too and thought her idea was wonderful cuz I LOVE writing letters and I LOVE getting mail myself. I have tried to instill in my girls the importance and value of a handwritten note...even taught a class once to a group of teenage girls about the "art of letter writing"...can you believe a few of them had NEVER written a hand written letter, addressed it and MAILED it to someone?! Crazy I tell ya! :)
And get your booty out the door to your mailbox!! Those still sitting on our counters don't count! :)
love you;)

"To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ."

Hi Jami,

I am new to your blog and really feel as though I was led here on purpose (I have goosebumps just typing that out!). I could not begin to describe the synchronicity of the events that have brought me here, but suffice it to say that I have come across three new blogs today who have all linked up to your Tuesday "We Encourage". And each of these blogs and their authors have encouraged ME. So much of what they have written is applicable to what I have been thinking/feeling lately, so I am convinced that I am here for a reason.

Thank you for this beautiful, open and encouraging space. I am looking forward to becoming blog-friends and participating in future link ups. :)

Have a blessed week!
