“…Walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself
up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” – Ephesians 5:2 (NIV)
Tasha was raised by her grandfather. He had taken her and her siblings in when her parents died in a car accident. Although he was older and living on a limited income, he still kept food on the table and the lights on.
What Tasha remembers most about her grandfather is his notes of encouragement. “He would leave notes for my brothers and me to find. They always said such sweet things like, ‘Tasha, your smile lights up the room’ or ‘Jerry, your courage inspires me.’”
It’s a tradition that Tasha started when her kids were old enough to read. “My grandfather celebrated me and what made me unique. I think that’s a powerful gift to pass onto the next generation.”
If you want to leave notes for a co-worker, friend or loved one to find, here are a few ideas to get you started…
- You are special.
- God is BIG!
- Never Give Up.
- Your smile is beautiful.
- Every morning is a new beginning.
- You are a shining star!
- You can do all things through Christ.
- Keep Going Even When It’s Tough.
- Your Art Matters.
- You can accomplish all of your goals.
- I love you!
Be sure to personalize your notes for your recipient!
God, help me to walk in the way of love. Let these notes I’m creating be a sweet offering back to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
