Cards of Faith



These are my note cards, and they are one of my most prized possessions. 86 weeks ago, my best friend moved away. For 7 years, in college and after my best friend and I have picked a verse of the week and meditated on it, we worked on memorizing them, and we talked about them. But, 86 weeks ago, that got a lot harder to do. Now we no longer memorize the verses, but we still think, pray, and meditate on them.
Here is how it works. On odd weeks, I pick a verse. On even weeks, she picks a verse. When it is your turn to pick the verse, you write it out on 2 note cards, and put your name, date, and week number on the top. The back is for writing prayer requests, worries, anxieties, thoughts, feelings, and updates. Some weeks the backs are more full than others. Then you mail the note cards out to the other person on Thursday, and they have it in the mail by Monday for their week. No one has ever read these cards other than the two of us. This is something personal and private between us and we don't really share it with anyone else.
It is a fun way to keep in touch, keep us accountable to spending time in the word, and it continues to connect us even thought we live hours apart. When I get my note card, it is one of the best moments of my week!
