Swallowed Up By Depression To A Brightened Day

It's been seven months since I received a birthday card from you and even though I'm not sure if I know you or not and I know only a small handful of people in the Elk River area I will not get rid of this card no matter if I know you are not. Truth is, there are many times, that a person such as myself, can be swallowed up in the depths of being depressed and it takes just a few moments to scan this card and reading what it says can brighten my day, that someone would care about me enough to send a thoughtful card like the one you sent. I am a Christian but that doesn't mean I don't have my down days. Just knowing that God cares for me so much to deem me worthy anointed and blessed and that God calls me his beloved and when we trust in him and have faith in him, we can be pulled out of Satan’s grasp and to rebuke his efforts to bring us me/us down. It is a good idea to keep a dozen or two affirming cards to get my days off to a good start or to bring it to a close to give me a sweet and peaceful night's rest. I would be interested in how you got my name and address since I don't have friends and acquaintances who are named Phyllis but none of them in the Elk River area. I am a Navy veteran of 24 years and many of my friends or most of my friends, I have not been in contact with since I have been incarcerated. Thank you so much for your care and concern for those who are in lock up situations and many or most have issues of guilt and shame and when we receive Jesus Christ into our lives, our hearts, He forgives us and loves us as much as everyone else.


One of my cards reads from proverbs 3:56 Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge Him and he will make your paths straight. Thank you, Phyllis, for having such a loving heart and whether I hear from you again or not have a very blessed Christmas and a new year filled with the gifts and joy only the Lord can give.


With God's love,
