I'll be honest, cards are often one of those things that end up getting crossed off my list without getting done. there is so much to do at Christmas time! But this year God has pointed out the blessings I have with my family and as I look around I know not everyone has the same kind of big, loving, get together for every holiday family that I often take for granted.
There are lots of people who can't get together with loved ones because they don't live close, there are many older people who have lost nearly all their family and are very lonely.
I can only imagine what it means to them to go to the mailbox and get a pretty reminder that they are remembered.
It is a tiny thing for me to take the time to write out a few cards for the lonely people I know. It doesn't really take much time. Better still a visit with some cookies or a little poinsettia in addition to the card may be all the Christmas they have. It's a gift that costs very little in time and money, but means so much.
Can you think of someone whose day would be brightened by a card in the mail?
May God truly fill our hearts with love and our lives with praise as we celebrate this Christmas season. ♥
