Signed, Sealed, Delivered on Hallmark Channel

Thank you for sharing!

My husband and I love great dramas and Signed, Sealed, Delivered does not disappoint. The new original series “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” is a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama that follows the lives of four postal detectives who transform themselves into a team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow always on time. The team includes charming Oliver O’Toole (Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty)), the group’s leader is a man of faith who prayerfully approaches his work with the goal of making a difference in people’s lives; new team member, Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth), a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited, “girl next door” Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe) who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson), a master in conventional research methods.

I had the chance to preview Sunday’s episode of Signed, Sealed, Delivered and the episode touched my heart in so many ways. Actually, every episode of this show will touch you and teach you a godly principle. I love the way the stories are introduced. You first see a glimpse of the person writing a the letter or in the case of this particular episode you see the events of the letter unfolding. This episode started off with the letter being found in an old desk at an antique shop and being given to the mailman. Oliver gets the letter and him and his team quickly discover when it was written and who has written it. They go on a mission to find the sender since the deliver address is unreadable on the envelope.

Did you ever write yourself a letter for the future? I had my students write one when I first started teaching. I also wrote my husband a future letter when I was still single and didn’t even know him. This letter that they found was a future letter that got stuck in a desk so the teacher couldn’t have sent it out 10 years later like planned. Only 7 years had passed since the letter has been found. Who wrote the letter, was a young girl with Down Syndrome. She wrote a beautiful letter to her future self and then realized she had fallen away from her dreams. Her parents had prevented her from achieving her dreams. The journey the parents and the Dead Letter Office employees take remind us that we need to be equally yoked when we marry. Marriage is a bond that God makes between two people. I think God puts our spouse in our life to complete us. My husband and would fail miserably at life if we didn’t balance each other out. I was crying at the end of the episode because of the beauty and truth it shared.

My husband and I are hooked on this show. Each episode tells a different story so you can jump right in and start watching. A couple “side-dramas” are thrown in that involve inter-office romances. I am very interested in Oliver’s full back story, but it is being played out very, very slowly since the majority of each episode is about the dead letter.  My favorite character would have to be Norman. He is a cute, lovable guy who doesn’t see or maybe comprehend that Rita is in love with him. He is so enthralled with his old books and stamps to notice.

I give this show 5/5 stars!! 

Another great thing about this show is that The American Bible Society has built a bible study to go with the series,

Isn’t that great? A seven-day Bible reading experience to dig deeper into the meaningful biblical themes revealed in each episode of Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

Thank you for sharing!

I remember when I was a kid I wrote a letter to my best friend at the time that was suppose to be opened when we grew up and she did the same for me. I waited years and years to open my letter and we had made predictions about what we would be doing by the time it came to opening the letters. Well I didn't do any of the things in the letter but I have had a great life anyway.

Sounds like something I'd be a sucker for. =) I just watched "Heaven is for Real" last week. I will have to ask my Bible Study gals to do this with me. Thank you for the suggestion!
