I walked up my steps, opened my mailbox, and saw a blue envelope. It was from one of my small group girls who is now in college. There are roughly twelve girls now in college ranging from freshmen to juniors who I hope I poured into while they were in high school (and hopefully in college too).
It was what I needed. It was a simple note letting me know how her life is, that she had been praying for me (I went through a dry spell earlier this year), and the influence that I have had in her life. After observing an amazing woman's legacy yesterday, my desire to leave a mark and live a life that is less about me and more about giving to others is growing.
A beautiful answer to prayer came in a blue envelope.
