When God Shows Up in my Mailbox

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today's prompt is "When." Write for five minutes; unedited.

I have always loved receiving snail mail in in my mailbox. It is so much fun to get surprises in my mail. There is the time my friend Sarah sent me a new hat she had crocheted. It is still my winter hat and I always get so many compliments on it.

It is so much fun to participate in my second round of the #fmfpartysnailmail. And it is always surprising to me how often God shows up in my inbox or in my mailbox.

God showed up in my email inbox a few weeks ago when a blog commenter sent me a note asking me to share about their journey, Lung Leavin' day, and to give my fears up to God.

Yesterday was one of those days when God definitely showed up in my mailbox. I received such an inspired note from one of the gals in my round of #fmfpartysnailmail that was so perfect for me! I will always hold these words close to my heart.



When God shows up in my mailbox....

I know that God is indeed with me!

  3. God shows up everywhere! And I LOVE that verse from 2 Timothy 1:7. My FAVORITE as I have always battled fear. Praying that God shows up powerfully in your life and continues to use you powerfully with the words He gives you to inspire others. Always love to read your 5-Minute Friday posts!

    Blessings-

  4. Lovely FMF post.
    Yeah, snail mail rulz. Especially for little token of fondness.
    I'm thinking to exercise a little my handwriting to be able to send beautifully written snail mail letters soon, as I kinda forgot this skill over the years with all this computer typing. :)

    1. I totally know what you mean. My handwriting isn't the prettiest but I try my best to write out my notes. I print them instead of use cursive writing so its easier to read!

  5. I missed out on this round of #fmfridaysnailmail and I hope I can get in on the next one. I did it at christmas time, but wasn't as much fun as i think this round would have been since I was already getting christmas cards. Love how it was an encouragement to you.

    1. I did it at Christmas time too. I have enjoyed both rounds but will agree that this round might be a tad more fun since I am not getting Christmas cards as well.
