Pass It On devotions
Inspiration | Devotion | Photography & Art
These devotions are stories from my heart---inspired by my adventures on the farm, hikes through nature and a sundry of other life events and experiences. My hope is to bring inspiration and joy to others. This is not your typical devotional design. Instead of a book or calendar, it's in greeting card packed full of inspiration. A full page devotion, followed by a page of printed scripture, prayer, meditation questions and a call to action. This format was chosen one day as I was cleaning some of the clutter from my home. I noticed a couple of areas where I had collected an over-abundance of items. Well okay, more than a couple of areas, but Pass It On devotions offers a solution for two of these areas. The first being that of books. Specifically, devotional books. I have read, enjoyed, and received the blessings from numerous devotional books. However, silly as it may seem, I feel a little guilt for just discarding them to a used book store or library where they will be lost in the masses, or worse yet, discarded as useless and out-of-date. Another area of “clutter” was my collection of greeting cards. Yes, I was excited, and my day brightened, when I received them in the mail. I enjoyed the beautiful message inside and thought of the sender who took the time to pick out a card, address it and put it in the mail. But now what do I do with them? They are still a thing of beauty. The message is still meaningful. But, I can’t leave them on display forever. Collecting them in a box to be stored in a closet really serves no purpose either. Then it hit me. I could take these two items and create a devotion in greeting card format that would bring joy, not only to one person, but to many others as it's passed on. These devotions can even be used to spark a small group discussion. Then, when you feel inspired to share the blessing of the message with someone else, you just stick it in the mail, sending it to a friend or family member. Getting personal mail these days is a rarity. My mailbox door almost falls off the hinge in excitement when a personal letter arrives! You could also leave it in a public place for a stranger, mail it to an inmate, nursing home resident or a hospital patient. However you decide to share it, please, Pass It On to bring a spark of joy to someone’s day. Remember, it only takes a spark…to fill someone’s heart, put a spring in their step, or a spark in their eye for the day! Yes, it might get a little worn by a coffee stain or two, but that’s just a little added character and charm. The more rounded the corners become and worn the fold, the sweeter its message! You could write a one line note on the inside or back for others to read and contemplate as it gets passed along. A date would show how long it’s been in circulation. How cool would it be to receive a card first shared 20 years ago?
