We attended a wedding and got a thank-you note. But I wasn’t expecting one. The bride and groom had already sent us a note for the gift we’d given them. ‘Hmm,’ I wondered as I opened it, ‘maybe they were worried they had overlooked us, so they’re sending another one.’
“Thank you both so much for joining us as we celebrated our big day. We hope you both had a great time as well!!”
Who does this?
Who spends postage to thank guests for their presence, instead of their presents?
Almost no one. And that’s why it’s so remarkable. And sweet.
The truth is, we are grateful to have special people with us, in good times, bad times, and in-between times. The trouble is, we neglect to tell them we are thankful that they are there.
Jesus said, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)
Something to think about.
