Lucky & Blessed! 4×6 Postcard

Lucky & Blessed! 4×6 JPG Printable Postcard to mail the sisters you Visit Teach.

Today’s Treat is a 4×6 Lucky & Blessed Postcard. Goes with March‘s message of course, because we’re blessed when we read them, and it was obviously inspired by St. Patrick’s Day.



Have you ever heard people say “I’m so lucky” and then either publicly corrected, or silently corrected, them to help them realize it’s called a blessing? I have to correct myself sometimes when I say, “I am so lucky” and realize that actually I’m being blessed. Well, that had me thinking a lot and I’m blessed with a lot, but I also think I’m lucky in a lot of ways. Lucky that i didn’t die in a car accident when I was 18, no, that was for sure a blessing. Didn’t even get a scratch on me. Or lucky to have the gospel in my life, no, that is a huge blessing. Blessed that I didn’t bite my nails, maybe but one can consider that lucky because now I’ll be able to paint them and make my hands look nice, but blessed that I even have hands and nails to paint. Get it?

Think about this: When you say you’re “blessed” instead of “lucky” you’re actually giving credit where credit is due. You are recognizing your blessings from the Lord and therefore publicly thanking Him for it, when we say it out loud. I think that society and time has actually blended those 2 words/meanings together, to keep us from acknowledging Him or trying to make it “politically correct.” How many times do you say you’re “lucky” for something when you really meant “blessed” but don’t really want to say blessed because it sounds more “churchy?” I’ll admit I have sometimes, or maybe because I didn’t want someone else to think they are less blessed. In reality we’re all blessed, but in different ways and for different reasons. Just stop and think about it next time.



Anyways…that’s why I came up with this Visiting Teaching Postcard, cause I thought that we are lucky and blessed to have the scriptures but for different reasons.

Postcard reads: “Lucky to have the scriptures handy! & Blessed when we read and study them daily!”
I also included a quote found in the Ensign, May 2005 titled “The Tender Mercies of the Lord” by Elder David A. Bednar. He's one of my top 15 fave Apostles! ;) He talks about how even the smallest things are blessings from the Lord. I loved it and so I thought it would be great to put it on a postcard because we are blessed even more when we read and study the scriptures every day. I testify that this is true!

I've never had the best handwriting and was the only 8th grader who typed up their homework. I used my mom's old school MSDOS computer and would save it on huge floppy disks, LOL. How grateful I am to get to use a fancy Mac these days. I absolutely love designing anything to help make life easier. I've loved it since I designed my very first digital logo back in 1999 for my DJ biz. I dream of someday owning a print & copy shop, until then, you can download and use my free printables or have me personalize a digital invite from my Etsy shop for you.
