I was recently reading an article about the value of writing a letter and the healing power it can offer. As we think of people who are suffering from any number of tragedies, would it be helpful to take a few minutes to sit down and write a letter? I read an article in "The Lutheran Journal" recently entitled just that, "The Healing Power of a Letter". Here are a few ideas:
A Letter of apology - looking for forgiveness when you know you wronged someone.
A letter of condolence over a loss - be it a loved one, a home, a job, etc.
A letter expressing regret and seeking forgiveness - looking to the future.
A letter of appreciation - a simple thank you.
A letter of encouragement - young people in school feeling challenged.
A letter of support and comfort - Reach out with kind words.
Have you written a letter or a note recently. There are many who could benefit, I'm quite sure of it. I think I'll get out my stationary!
