  1. LOVE this!!

    BTW – my son also turned 20 last month and I am not old enough for him to be 20, nor has 20 years passed since his birth. Nope, I refuse to accept that. : )

  2. Dear Leah,

    I love this so much, too! And thank you for sharing those words from Isaiah. They’re so meaningful to me today. It’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve grown from being a baby Christian. There have definitely been growing pains but I’m so thankful to God for using this time to help me to grow and have a real relationship with Him. I love His Gift and His Greeting Card!

    Blessings to you,

    • Thanks Becky! A friend of mine shared with me a couple of insights after reading my post which I thought were awesome:

      The Incarnation = Birth Announcement — Blessed Christmas
      Baptismal Remembrance = Happy Birthday (2nd birth)
      Confirmation = Congratulations Graduate
      Holy Communion = Dinner Invitation
      First Miracle = Wedding invitation (Cana)

      Specific greeting cards within the great greeting card!

      Blessings to you, too!

  3. What a beautiful post! I love reading the words from (in)courage in the early mornings over a cup of coffee. Thank you for your words and reminder that He does provide for us daily. I am so glad I have a permanent “greeting card” from the Lord.


  4. Leah, as a greeting card writer I love this analogy. I never thought of it that way!! Thanks for using your gift of encouragement to speak new truth to us.
