Why Letters from Home? Posted on March 21st, 2013
While looking through old family photos from the 1800’s, we realized that other than the photographs we held in our hands, we know little about our ancestors. For some, we don’t even know their names. What were they like? What did they experience? Did they have a relationship with the Lord and what did He teach them? These are things we wished we knew. It got me to thinking about the brevity of life and how I want to share our lives with future generations that we may or may not get to meet. So I am resolved to write letters that will answer some of these questions about us for those who are still yet to be born. In the meantime these letters can serve as a way to hopefully encourage others and keep me accountable to write them.
They will be addressed to several different people. I am starting off with Sarah, my sweet friend who will be moving far away to start her own family. I will also be writing letters to my daughters Lady Bird (Breezy), and Rosey Bird (Emily Rose), as well as the Little Birds (those precious future generations of ours). There will probably be others that I will write letters to for one reason or another. I may even just start naming grandchildren and great-grandchildren just for the fun of it.
I pray that these letters will be a blessing to those who read them, whether you are family or friend.
