Spirituality through greeting cards

I love greeting cards — yes, it’s one of my passions (how many passions does this woman have, you might ask. The answer is: Many!)  These days I am constantly amazed at my finds. I stumbled upon the card below in a Rite Aid drugstore!!!

This is the message on the card, in case you can’t decipher it from the photo:

“We didn’t come here to fit in. We came here to be who we are. We didn’t come here to work. We came here to live our dreams. We didn’t come here for the stuff. We came here to love each other. We didn’t come here by accident. We each came here with a purpose that is uniquely our own… [and then inside the card] Be… Dream… Love… Thrive… Always… Happy Birthday”  — from American Greetings.

Wow… It would have been safe to say that I would never have found such a card ten years ago.

Here’s another one from a lesser-known company:

“Change is to our lives as water is to our bodies. Without it we dry up. It is the source. Change wakes us up: change keeps us from falling asleep during the best bits of our lives.”   — Mary Ann Radmacher — from Brush Dance.

And then there’s this one. I can’t say I like the art (not my style) but what it says rings true:

“Many people don’t know there are angels whose only job is to make sure you don’t get too comfortable & fall asleep & miss your life.”  — from Artists to Watch.

I believe that all my angels are of this type 🙂
