I went for a walk to the mailbox this morning. I saw the sunrise on the way. Then I left a note in one of the notebooks. It is a beautiful place where you can feel the great love of God for us. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, kindred spirit.
We went on a walk to the mailbox this morning, it was over a mile from the ramp near the street. The messages were personally moving for us to read. The joyful expressions of God’s beauty. Loss of a loved one, missing those who have already gone before them. People’s prayers for those who are dealing with deaths of those close to them. Some are just fun, like the simple words from a child: “I love the beach. Don’t you?”
I walked to the mailbox yesterday morning and look at the wonderful surprise I found waiting there! Since this is festival season and time to sell books, it’s been weeks since I’ve had the opportunity to get down there to check things out. Some kind and industrious hearts have been very busy. My spirits are still soaring. It was high tide so more of a slog than usual getting down there, but well worth it! Thank you Kindred Spirit’s Kindred Spirit! As a bonus, on the way back I met Linda from Cherry Grove, the lady Laura Lewis and I met on the way down on the day of the rescue mission, so I had company on the way back! How cool is that? –Jack DeGroot
With every visit I make to the beach I make it a point to take a walk to the mailbox to sit and meditate on the beauty that is the beach and how fortunate I am to be able to spend time there. Whether the sun is shining or not it is always magnificent to sit surrounded by the glory that is God’s creation!
I went there this past summer. I can’t wait to go back next year. I really like having this website to be able to share my thoughts about the beach and read what others have to share. It’s not the same as being there but puts in that frame of mind. Thanks.
I love the idea of this mailbox. I had the pleasure of making a visit there last year and also was able to be one of the stewards and mail off some of the loose papers and books to the person who runs the mailbox. I think it would be neat to put the stories in a book sometime.
This is a moving idea! thank you for helping maintain one of God’s gifts intact and with it, making hundreds of people happy providing a space to tell their stories.
someday i’ll visit and say hi to you in print.
Greetings from Colombia,
I just finished reading The Mailbox by Marybeth Whalen, the book is wonderful. I’m putting Sunset Beach, NC on my bucket list.
I was there in December visiting and heard about the mailbox. It is such a nice idea. I did some research and found out more. We are having a family reunion and will share with other family memebers. I look forward to visiting it. Thank you.
What a lovely idea. Doesn’t
Everyone need a place for their thoughts and ideas to go and know that they are heard by someone. So many times in life we are not heard and we forget that it is important to be heard as well as to listen. Also our prayers go out to all those in ct that were affect in tradegy today.
For some reason I was drawn to this site tonight…not exactly sure why….but quit pushing Sue Sue I made it…I have had a tough couple of days done some deep soul searching and have relized I cant change the world or even one person without losing one part of who I am…I can only support the people I love and share my life with those whom wish to have me in their lives…I can stand up for what I believe in and in some case I may stand alone and that is ok with me because I will not change my beliefs for simple gain…I can say at this point I drink from the saucer for my cup runnith over…I think I may have finally gotten it…
Really….this is a good web page.
