  1. Thank you for this wonderful list. I am starting a card ministry at my church to send cards of encouragement and love to those who are homebound or may just be feeling alone. We hope to expand to get wells, sympathy, and celebrations as well. This list will really help me get started with the Bible verses to put inside.

  2. I use verses in all my cards never know for sure if all I send to are believers or not. One of my favorite is “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you.” (Philippians 1:3) inmost birthday cards. In sympathy cards I use Psalm 143:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

  3. I loved the verse in Psalms 115:15 kjv “YE are BLESSED of the LORD which made HEAVEN and EARTH.”
    This verse could be for a newly wedded couple, an anniversary or birthday, even new parents, anyone receiving a promotion on the job, anyone graduating school and life begins with a new turn to career or getting married. Anyone getting the news they are recovering from an illness. Psalm 115:15 can go a long way touching the lives of many people. I love your site. I love that you are sharing Bible verses for special occasions,

  4. The verse my husband and I used for our wedding and invitations was “A cord of 3 strands is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4: 12
    Thanks for these verses, I have a couple of sympathy cards to send off, unfortunately.

    1. What a fun idea to use that verse for your wedding and invitations! I’m so sorry you had sympathy cards to send, but I’m thankful that this list was a blessing to you.

  5. I love your list. Here is another verse that I love writing to encourage friends and others :

    Romans 1:12
    ‘When we get together I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours’
