Religious Thank You Card: Take Time to be Thankful

Thank You Cards 5

Thank You For Being My Sponsor

Think for a moment and count up how many times you’ve said the words ‘Thank You’ in
the past 48 hours. My guess is that your words do not begin to come close to matching the actual number of blessings in your life. For example, if you are reading this blog, you can be thankful for the gift of sight. If you were deprived of sight for even one day, you would quickly appreciate it more than you do. Or how about this – have you enjoyed a meal today? Have you thanked God for the taste buds He gave you? Food didn’t have to taste delicious to us, but God blessed us with that pleasure.

This taking time to be thankful should extend to other people as well, and that is how we can play a role in recapturing an attitude of thankfulness. God deserves our thanks first and foremost, but there are so many missed opportunities when we could be thanking others too. A few years back, one man decided to write a Thank You note to someone each day for a year. Those notes became a book about how the practice transformed his life. Without doubt those who received his notes were also impacted.

A religious thank you card is particularly great in this regard because it acknowledges the blessing of the other person and includes God at the same time. If you consider
for even a few moments, there are so many people who make your day a delight. Your pastor or priest, your Sunday school teacher, your child’s soccer coach, even the friendly server at the coffee shop all contribute to your life in some way.

In fact, you could send a religious thank you card to just about everyone in your life. Your neighbor who keeps his yard up, the mailman who never fails rain or shine, your co-worker who shares paper clips and the grown child who calls every week just to visit. Even the person who has an opinion different from yours helps you to be a better thinker and broadens your world.

Have you ever found yourself in bed at night and thanking God for the fun of lightning bugs and the song of the crickets, think about how much we have to be thankful for. We could do so much better at thanking others around us – if we would take the time to do it. The good news is that big changes usually start small. Take some time to browse through our thank you cards at The Printery House, buy some stationery, and take some time today (and every day) to send a eligious thank you card to at least one person for the way they enrich your life.

Share a Message of Thankfulness With a Religious Thank You Card

Thank You Cards 4

With a Joyful Heart

Take a moment and think about last week. Did someone do something nice for you? Maybe they called in the middle of a hard day and managed to cheer you up. Perhaps they covered for you at work or church while you were away. Maybe they picked you up from the airport, helped you move or gave you a birthday gift. What have you done to let them know how grateful you are for the way they blessed you?

Our instantaneous world still has need of personal communication. A message of thankfulness written out on a note card means a lot. Let’s face it, people are slower than machines, pens move slower than keyboards, and that is precisely why a handwritten note of thanks is so valuable.

The person who receives your note of thanks knows that it cost you a few extras to send it. A few extra minutes to choose a card versus sending a word of thanks via email. A few extra moments to compose your thoughts and write them down. And a little extra effort to address, stamp and put the note in a physical mailbox.

Of course one other extra to the handwritten thank you card is the extra time set aside for reading it. Unlike an email message which arrives in the midst of a busy workday and does not require the reader to ever leave his or her desk, the tangible note is obtained only when the person goes to the mailbox. Then it invites the recipient to sit down in a comfortable chair and savor the pleasure of reading – away from all the chores and responsibilities of the day.

A religious thank you card is ideal for the person who shares their faith with the recipient or the Christian who desires to subtly introduce Jesus into the conversation. Whoever is on the receiving end, sending a thank you note is also good manners. Even today, and perhaps more so today than ever, good manners are a means of conveying respect, love and caring for other people.

Most people today who don’t send a handwritten word of thanks say it is because it takes too much time or they forget. The Printery House sells religious thank you cards, assorted all-occasion cards, and cards which are blank on the inside just waiting for your message. If you buy cards ahead of time, they will be on hand when you want to jot down your gratitude.

And a thank you note does not require a great deal of time to write. It is not necessary to write a long story about life events in a thank you card. The point is to express gratefulness to the other person. A couple of sentences will suffice. If you send a religious thank you card, there is a perfect springboard for a few short lines of telling how the other person blessed you.

The importance of thanking another person with handwritten words is real. A note is substantive in several ways that digital communication can never be. Check out the religious thank you cards for sale at The Printery House and stock up today so you will be ready the next time someone does you a kindness.
