Christmas Cards

I still enjoy sending and receiving Christmas cards...
they're like little gifts that make the season so much brighter.
I especially love the ones with family pictures and letters.
Oh the Joy!

I tend to hold on to the ones I've received from year to year...

Some have greetings from family and friends 
who are in heaven now, and it's wonderful seeing their 
handwritten messages from Christmastimes past.

Sometimes I think about cutting them up
 and using them for a craft project, 
but that hasn't happened so far.

My Mother and Grandmother would 
string their cards across the living room wall 
making a wonderful holiday display.

After we read our cards, we usually place them in a basket 
with little snippets of each card showing off it's color.

I'm sure one of my Aunts used to make 
something similar to this with her old cards.  
It's actually very whimsical isn't it!

I'm hoping to get my cards in the mail soon, along with a short newsletter sharing some of our favorite pictures and happenings during this past year.

Cheerful * Merry * Joyful

"The Lord bless you and keep you; 
The Lord make His face shine upon you; 
And be gracious to you; 
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, 
And give you peace."
  Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)
