I'm participating in Jennifer Beltoff's Love Notes Postcard Project during three weeks in December.
As she so beautifully put it in a post on her blog:
"The Love Notes Post Card project invites you pause, sink into the moment, and write words from the heart ~ on an actual piece of paper. Words that will brighten someones day and spread sunshine to all those hands it passes through." - Jennifer Beltoff
Her prompts are beautifully written and inviting.
During the first week I sent off a postcard with the message.
This past week the prompt was a series of words and we were encouraged to pick the words that spoke to us. I decided to use a tag, stamp a few flowers, and this week mail it in an envelope. (I also sent one off to Jennifer to say thank you. I might as well spread the love, right!)
Specific words spoke to me, they whispered to my soul, as rewrote them in my journal and then I played. I put tracing paper over the words and rewrote the ones that spoke to me. When I pulled the tracing paper away I was left with just the words that I needed.
I continued to play, wrote and rewrote, chose to keep the words I found in order, added little words like with, and, in, and finally settled on what is below:
be blissfully in love
with a sense of being
be a knowing teacher
grow and shine
from the shadows
I do hope that it brings a smile and warms the heart of my love note participant.
I think I will work on creating it larger with fun handwritten fonts.
Be sure and pop over to Jennifer's blog and sign up for her love notes newsletter (there is a button on the right hand sidebar) so that you can play along next time.
As always, thanks for visiting.
