Letters of Comfort ~ Sympathy Mail ~ Free Printable


"Rejoice with them that do rejoice,
and weep with them that weep."
~ Romans 12:15

Sending Sympathy...

There has been some measure of sadness and sorrow surrounding many of us in these unprecedented times. Often it’s hard to console or say the right thing. A phone call can get awkward, a text may feel cold but a letter in the mail always feels appropriate.


You can pray about the words before you write them down and it shows extra care when you take the time to send them. 


In difficult circumstances, I will often tuck a dainty white handkerchief inside, a special Scripture and even a sprig of dried lavender for an extra bit of love.

for the smaller size and here for the larger size...🤎


And for those of you who are housebound, what a beautiful blessing this can be... what a heartfelt ministry you can have! What a lovely homemaking hobby! 

"What a wonderful thing is the mail,
capable of conveying across continents a warm human hand-clasp."

  1. This is beautiful, Jes! I shall keep your post in mind for its ideas!

    You are right. There is not much that can be said. Scripture is the most beautiful, and full of purpose! People must be allowed to take steps as they are ready.

    This is an excellent piece of yours! Thank you! .... It is also a reminder of beauty and life when people are broken.

  2. Hi Jes! What a beautiful idea the little bottles with verses. I love them. I can't seem to print them out though :( Both of the links just bring me back to my profile. Is there some other way to get them? thank you :)

    1. Thank you for pointing that out Peg! I don't know why that happens as I tested the link but somehow it reverts to blogger... I think I fixed it! Please let me know if it works on your end now... Love, JES :)

  5. This is a lovely post about a hard subject. Finding the right words is not always easy, but with prayer, is possible. I think getting a card in the mail lets the receiver know they are being thought of. And I think we all could use the feeling of someone thinking of us and letting us know. Kind of a "hug in the mail".

  7. Thank you, these are beautiful! However, when I click on the links it brings me to blogger settings instead of the pictures. Is there another way to download them? Thank you again!

  10. This is a lovely printable. I have a very old book bought some thirty years ago at a thrift shop with sentiments for any occasion. The wording has to sometimes be reworked a bit to make it fit today but it is so helpful at times. It is nice to picture someone a long time ago sitting at a beautiful desk looking up the appropriate words for a letter of condolence or any other occasion.

    1. What a neat book to have! And I agree, if we were to see the concern and time it went into someones words the card would mean that much more to us!
