They say that you know a man best by reading his personal correspondence. The true man is revealed in his letters. Thomas Jefferson wrote over 19,000 personal letters.
This week we got some great letters. I got an e-mail from Ray and one from my sister Rachel. I received e-mails from blog friends and copies of e-mails from missionaries serving throughout the world. Joe and Ande sent us a postcard of Duke, the surfing legend. Grace sent pictures of projects she completed. This morning I opened the in-box to a detailed letter (and pictures) from Abe who is currently deployed to Afghanistan.
|can you tell which one is Abe?|
All is quiet on the Cali front only because she's visiting the Ellsworth family this week, but I can't wait to hear about it soon. Tonight or tomorrow we'll receive a weekly family e-mail from Joe and Ande, and Ty and Michelle.
And then . . . there is this text Calvin sent a week or so ago: "You are right ........ I was wrong ....... I apologize ..... 123." I saved that one in my phone in case he needs to say it again soon.
I'm certain that is why I enjoy and appreciate the scriptures. They remind me of letters. Letters clear full of details signed, sealed, and delivered from Heavenly Father. And you know what they say . . . you know a man best by reading his correspondence.
