Thank You Hebrews 11:1 and Little Montreal Girl!

Today on my return from the nursing home, I was met with a lovely surprise.
In my mailbox was an envelope stuffed full with little gifts.
The Lord so often sends these unexpected pleasures into our lives!
The letter was sent to me from two of Pilgrim David Fisher's little pilgrim pals, Hebrews 11:1 and his sister whom I call little Montreal girl.
This kitty was sent along from Quebec to Ontario to guard the treasure!

Inside the envelope was this rainbow with such a great promise from God.
I know what I am going to do with this little card.
I am going to print it out for my mom and dad, and I know exactly where Mom will put it.
She will hang it on the fridge where Dad will, without fail see it and read it everyday while he is eating his breakfast.
I love the promise of the little verse in Matthew where Jesus is pleading with the weary to come unto Him and He will give them rest!

I love this little card too and I must admit that the kitty is cute also!
How happy would be our lives if we were like God's creatures who never worry about the problems of life!

I really do wonder how "Hebrews 11:1" and his sister, "Praying Sens Fan In Montreal" could have known that I would have loved this picture of such pretty daffodils.
I have seen only a few this year.
There were so many that had popped up their little heads during the mild December and January that we had this year.
In February during the two weeks of ice storm, they were frozen solid!
Thank you so much my little pilgrim pals.
I will never forget your kindness!!!

"We do not always know how those little acts of kindness have left an imprint on those around us."
"We forget in the everyday bustle of our lives, to remember the little things we do are often the ones that remain unforgettable."
"Sometimes little acts of kindness can become giant deeds to the recipient and can make all the difference in the world.
And we may not even have realized what we have done."....Patricia C Behnke
Matthew 25:40...."Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Although these two little pilgrim pals have no blog site of their own, you can read their good comments on Pilgrim David's blog, "Pilgrim Scribblings".


Hebrews 11:1 said...

Dear Mrs. S.,

I'm glad that you were blessed...wait till I show my little sis this (she's in bed). I knew you'd like that card with the rainbow, because you just used that verse recently. I have to laugh a bit, because silly me thought those were narcissus, and OF COURSE THEY'RE DAFFODILS!

May God bless you and your family!

the little Pilgrim pals who just might write you again sometime...you never know ;D

You were blessed with such kindness and by sharing you have blessed each of us who stopped by.
I love it when God's love is shared!

I have these little cards. I buy them at the Christian store here and always put them into cards when I send them out. Great way to brighten someones day. Terry we have found out that Simon is having Behavior problems. No wonder. He is now wetting all over things!! Wonderful. We are trying this new thing called Feliway. It is an electric diffuser that you plug into a plug in. Itis supposed to emit the smell of a mother cat and calm a cat down. Boy I hope so. He really a hand full. He has not bit me in a while so that is good but the wetting is horrible. Sandy

Jim said...

Hi Terry -- Well, we are back now, got in last night. I have a doctor appointment this afternoon and will go from there.
Your blog is the first I checked this morning and those cards and Scriptures and verses seemed to be for me.
I'm glad you got them and a special THANKS from me for sharing them.

Felisol said...

Dear Terry,
Thank you for your hearfelt concern and prayers. They'e helping more than I thought possible.

Now the clock is 24, that is midtnight in Norway.

Happy birthday and a merry celebration to all of you.

Dearest Terry...isn't God wonderful and amazing in how he brings that encouragement when we need it most.

Great idea on the scripture cards. To be able to tuck it in a card...or slip on someones desk...knowing God's word never returns void.

Missy...got your note on Grandpa Yade...and I'm excited to experience him myself after your praise.

Blessings dear one. Susan

Scripture lifts the heart doesn't it! I wanted to say too...we do have the same taste in books..childrens books too...aren't they special though!!! good reading opens a new world for me...all my life.

Hebrews 11:1 said...

I didn't have a moment to say more here, but I found it very encouraging to see that these cards blessed so many people! My sister and I have been giving these out to people for years, leaving them all over stores, and even taping them onto people's doors in our area...oh, right, telephone booths are our favorite to drop them at. One day when I was walking by the telephone booth near my house, I noticed a card on the ground, with a cigarette burn through it. It read, "Each of us matter to God", and there was a photo of kittens. Interestingly enough the burn was through the kittens, not the words! That encouraged me so much. The I found one on the street around the corner from my house, and I'd never given one out on that street! My youngest brother always encouraged me through our darkest times with, "At least they read it (the seed was sown), even if they did throw it out."
I encourage everyone to buy these at your local Christian bookstore, and send them out in your mail, and hand them out. I often included them in my business' newsletter mailings.

From, the little Pilgrim Pal

Dear Hebrews 11:1..
Your little cards DID affect a lot of people and encouraged them too!

Jim, who commented here thought that the verses were just especially for him.
Apparently he took quite a tumble while he was on his holidays and was pretty "battered up".
He is going to be needing a lot of doctoring!

Your little story about the cigarette butt reminded me of one little teen aged kid that was helping out in the "Seed Sowing" house deliviery of John 3:16 verses, door to door.
Well he said one guy took one and then right away put it in the blue recycling box.
This really bothered Michael and when he told me about it, I just said to him.
"Don't you worry about that Michael, perhaps that verse plauqe will be read by the recycling guy, the guy will get saved because of it and one day you just might meet that guy in heaven!!"...From Terry

Hebrews 11:1 The "leading commentator" has been so busy the last few days,
First of all Dad fell on Sunday so Mr. S. and I had to give him some doctoring and then we have had two people in our family pass away.
I went to my cousin's funeral today and tomorrow I will be going to my nephew's girlfriend's mother's funeral....

Hebrews 11:1 said...

Oh, dear Mrs. S.! I am so sorry to hear that you have 2 funerals in 2 days to go to! That is probably sadder than what I went through the other evening...my neighbor finally took me up on my offer to watch her 2 little ones for a few hours, and I prayed I would be able to do it. The last time I went over there I saw all of her husband's stuff lying around, and I missed him so much. Anyway, all went well until I thought I'd put them to bed...they cried so much because they wanted their parents, but the almost-2-year-old really got me when she cried for her Daddy. I was brave for awhile, and then that was it. It passed, though. They were sound asleep in 1/2hour.

I will keep your dad in prayer. Is he badly hurt?

Praying for you daily,
The lil Pilgrim Pal
