2017: The Year of Gratitude

2017: The Year of Gratitude

I cannot believe 2017 is coming to a close.   It seems like this year has flown by!!  I have two little boys, and as everyone always says with young children “the days are long, but the years are short.”     This year that adage rings especially true for me.    So, as we end 2017 and perch on the cusp of 2018, I want to wrap up Paper Sunday’s Year of Gratitude with our last gratitude post. 

It is hard to put into words how much I appreciate every person who has been part of Paper Sunday by gifting a journal to someone they treasure and love.     I am grateful for your stories, tears, and testimonials.   Over the years I have gotten to know so many of you and had the pleasure of speaking to you via email, phone or in person.    Every one of you has a story, and THANK YOU for sharing them with me.    I am grateful to those who need a journal “as quickly as possible” for their friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer.    I am grateful for the teacher in Georgia who encourages his students with the word of God at every opportunity.   I am grateful for MOPS, YOUNG LIVES, Kupendwa Ministries, Friends of Bethany Hamilton, The Hope Center, Belle and Sparrows, and so many other organizations who allowed Paper Sunday to be a small part of their ministry or conferences.   They are the hands and feet of Christ and we are blessed for knowing them.    I am grateful to my customers who send our journals to men and women serving in the military.  I am grateful to all my guest bloggers this year, who shared their heart and helped us all grow a little closer to God.    

I am personally encouraged in my walk with the Lord every time I speak to my sweet elderly customers who are the very embodiment of Prayer Warriors.    I have literally cried on the phone talking with some of you as you’ve shared stories of real tragedy – But, so grateful that you run to God’s words for comfort and healing.     There is truly no greater gift than God’s love which can turn tears of sorrow into tears of joy and make beauty from ashes.    

So, as we close out our Year of Gratitude THANK YOU!    Thank you for supporting Paper Sunday and personally inspiring me.   One of the best parts of my day is hearing from you and hearing your story of the time you first received your journal and what it meant to see your name in scripture.   Thank you for making my job so rewarding!!!   

I hope we all continue on a journey of thanks and keep on with a grateful heart each day.

MUCH LOVE,

Kara 

 

 

P.S.   Be on the look-out for our 2018 launch of LOVE IN ACTION! Details COMING SOON!

Kara, when I learned of the Paper Sunday journal, Our Saviour put on my heart a new friend who is a visiting priest at my Church…yes a Priest! It was exactly what was needed. At first she thought it was just another journal until she saw her name in scripture. This made it overwhelming personal for her in discerning God’s word. She has told me that she brings her journal with her where ever because it is such a source of inspiration for her. Kara, thank you for this beautiful gift you are sharing. I pray Our Lord and Saviour continues to bless you, your family, and your business. Your new friend, Winsome.

I heard about this amazing journal on HIS Radio, a Christian station in North Carolina that I listen to. Erica, the host, was so excited about reading her name in scripture that I was captivated by it. She said the name “Paper Sunday” so fast that I actually called into the station to verify the name. She actually answered the call and personally gave me the name. I’m definitely purchasing several but will have to be careful in my spending. I can think of so many people to give this precious gift to that would not only benefit them but enhance their walk with Our Saviour. Thank you for this precious gift. Winsome.

Love, love, love!

I purchased this for me, mom, god mother, mother-in-law & god mother-in-law, and we all love it! No better way to engage in the Word than to have the Word speaking directly to you. This takes journaling to a new level! Thanks Paper Sunday!

LOVE THESE!!!

I bought 18 journals for Christmas gifts for family and friends and 1 journal for myself and 1 calendar for myself (one for you... two for me 😂). The people I gave them to LOVED them. They are so unique. They are well made and high quality and the print examples don’t do justice to how pretty they are in person. I will be ordering more next year for sure.

He Knows My Name!🙌🏻

This was a gift given to me. What a special gift! To see MY NAME in scripture! I want to memorize scripture this year and what a beautiful way to do so! I immediately went on line and ordered for my friends too. Thank you for making it so personal, that is what it should be ... Personal! ❤️

All four of the journals were gifts. And all four of the ladies loved them! I am praying they will be a blessing to them all year long

Impact

We gave this journal as a gift to our international student staying with us. Seeing her name inserted into scripture has touched her heart and helped her understand how personally His word applies to each believers life. This is a great way to see God’s word living and active and touching lives. Thank you for your gift of ministry through your business.
