My dad introduced me to stamp collecting when I was about eight. He had a couple of navy-blue, hard-cover albums with crunchy-sounding, yellowed cellophane paper separating the pages. Colorful little rectangles were affixed to pages with headings like Mauritania and Helvetia–countries I had never heard of .
Something recently reminded me of those stamps. It might have been a drawing by my friend Cindy on her website Mostly Markers. Instead of using my Lenten calendar template this year, I decided to draw stamps. Each day I draw one or two stamps for the people I’m praying for. I can imagine my prayer wishes taking flight, airmailed directly to God.
