My Letter Box

For the month of April, I am sharing a photo a day.  Today's photo challenge was "mail," so I took a picture of the memory box in which I keep all of the letters I've received from my loved ones since I've been in college.

Since last semester when I purchased the box for fifty cents at a craft store, I've nearly filled up the entire thing.  By May, I'll need to either purchase a new memory box or find another place to keep the letters I have already.  Any ideas?

Mail is one of the highlights of my day.  Little else cheers me up more than receiving letters and packages in the mail.  When I'm feeling stressed out or worn down, notes from my mom or my grandma or my sister will brighten my week.

And I keep those letters and read and re-read them.

Mail is one of my favorite things in the world.

Psalm 71:7-8
My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection. That is why I can never stop praising you; I declare your glory all day long.

I have been studying the idea of leaving a legacy the last week or so and this verse recently stuck out to me in my quiet time.  I would like to expand on this a little more in a few days perhaps, but for now, I encourage you to remember that your life is an example to many.  People look at you and see Christ.  Be sure to take time to praise Him and thank Him today.  Bring Him glory with the things you do and say.  Shine for the Lord.
