◽️ In our ever-changing world of technology, it would seem letter writing is a thing of the past. I’ll be the first to admit, I can’t remember the last time I actually sat down to write a letter!
▫️I love the movie, “You’ve Got Mail”, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. But even that form of communication, (instant messaging on the computer) seems a bit ‘archaic’ today!
▫️And just when you think ‘texting’ is the latest way of talking, sooner or later another form will take its place.
▫️Paul describes a letter to us in 2 Corinthians, but not just any letter… He says….”Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you, Christ himself wrote it – not with ink, but chiseled into stone, carved into human lives – and we publish it”…”Only God can write such a letter.” 2 Corinthians 3:3,5 MSG
▫️ I love that old hymn by Fanny Crosby ~ “Tell Me The Story of Jesus”

Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
Sweetest that ever was heard

▫️Letter writing maybe old-fashioned, but it’s clearly a personal form of communicating with someone else. It shows you’ve taken the time to sit down and think about who you are writing to. Thought felt expressions, showing you care.
▫️If God has taken the time to write himself upon our hearts, taken the time to communicate to us, writing on our hearts every word of his love for us, are we publishing that to others?

The Author

Hey there....so glad you dropped by! My name is Elizabeth Maxwell, but everyone knows me as "Beth." I am the wife to Kevin Maxwell of 35 years. We have 3 grown sons, one daughter-in-law, and our adopted daughter Maria. God laid on our hearts to experience the adoption journey in 2000. Our sweet Maria is special needs and from Bulgaria. God has truly been with us every step of the way on our journey with her. I live in the beautiful foothills state of Tennessee. I love my beautiful Tennessee home. From the foothills to the whippoorwills, God's beauty shines forth here. I love to laugh often. I enjoy old movies, reading books, and I love to sing southern gospel songs, especially the ones with a little bit of country. I love my sweet little job, working with Kindergartners...and yes "kids do say the darndest things!" I am encouraged by God's word and I love to dig into it. I am by no means a scholarly expert, but I do delight in His encouragement for me. I am a friend of God...after all, God's got my back! And not just my back - "He goes before me." (Deuteronomy 31:8) "He's right beside me." (Hebrews 13:5) and, "He surrounds me on every side." (Psalm 125:2) These verses remind me that I am not alone while traveling on this "Journey Called Life!" Won't you travel with me? While on this journey, I may share a recipe, a book, or even a movie or song that I love....but most of all I want to share God's word with you. My prayer is that you will be encouraged, and know that you are not alone on this journey called life!
