Given by Text
Though informal and somewhat impersonal, you can’t argue with its convenience! But you may be thinking, how can a text message possibly bring hope?
Think of it as the modern-day “drop in.” Years ago, we would simply knock on our friend’s door and invite ourselves over for coffee around the kitchen table. Free time seems to be disappearing with every passing day, and quite possibly doesn’t exist in our overflowing calendar of commitments. Though this is the sad reality most find themselves in, it doesn’t have to keep you from checking in on friends and family with genuine intention, even via text.
As we head into a new year, aim to make a resolution or intention to check in on your loved ones more, even if it’s simply a quick text message.
A simple “How are you doing?!” text can go a long way. It’s easy to assume on the surface that people are doing just fine, but do we really know how our loved ones are holding up? We can’t know unless we ask. Smiling faces can still carry hurt, sorrow, doubt, and hopelessness. It takes less than a minute to send a text message that has the power to open a door to hope for others.
Think of 5 friends or family members and send them a text that lets them know you are thinking of them this season (and always!). Then, reflect on the experience and your responses either by visiting lyfeplum.com or sharing your thoughts with your Hope Family.
