One of my most dearest friends in the entire world gave me a most beautiful gift for my birthday this month. A gift that reflects her love for me, her heart for me and her consistent encouragement to me to continue to write to glorify God. Her gift was life-giving refreshment for my soul.
My sweet girlfriend gave me a calligraphy quill pen and purple ink. The pen is to encourage me to continue writing…in purple ink because purple is my signature color.
What beautiful gifts from a friend. Gifts that reflect love, faith, hope, hard work and endurance. Gifts of encouragement.
So, whether I write a love note to my husband, encouraging backpack notes to my children, mirror messages in dry-erase marker for my family, chalk messages on the driveway to welcome guests, a scripture card to encourage a friend, a blog post flowing from what He is doing in my heart or a devotional that touches lives beyond my mailbox, I will continue to write as He leads. As unto Him. With purple ink and with the love, prayers and enthusiastic cheers from a friend. “Go ahead…I am with you heart and soul.” (1 Samuel 14:7)
Right this moment, I am going to write in purple ink a note to a friend encouraging her to use her God-given gifts for Him!!
