Tuesday, May 20, 1997

Last night I found my box of old letters. Helen Fling is a dear mentor of mine who possesses the gift of encouragement through letter writing. Her words are like gold and I've delighted in pouring over them since unearthing the box.

While I was in college she kept up with my classes and ways that she could pray for me. Here is an excerpt from a letter she wrote on May 20, 1997.

Exodus 19: 4 - 5, My assurance for you.
God reminded the children of Israel how he carried them on eagles' wings and also that they were a treasure to him. I prayed for removal of fear of failure.

II Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind.
Isaiah 26:3, You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in thee. I prayed for peace of mind and calmness, poise, clear thinking, and good memory.

For assurance of God's continued leadership and care. Philippians 1:6 - Being confident of this very thing that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it to the day of Jesus Christ.

I claimed this promise for you with faith and confidence in God.

Love ever, Aunt Helen

Who could use a note from you today? Lick a stamp. Write a letter. Encourage a friend.

I love writing notes! Last year I decided to opt out of a traditional resolution and tried to write an encouraging note to someone everyday. It got a little tricky sometimes to think of people that needed a note - but it was a great experience. There were days I missed, yes - but I am sure the whole thing ended up meaning WAY more to me than anyone who got a note! I second the suggestion from Sparkfly to write a note!
