Whether you believe in Christ or not, I am sure that you have still heard the story of Jesus Christ’s birth. The reason for the Christmas celebration is Christ. I have been having a really hard time finding just that perfect Christmas card. I try to find cards that mean something to me. I never just purchase any card to send. I personalize each card that I send. I hand-write the name/names of the recipient at the top of the card. I underline the parts of the card verse that I think the recipient will relate too. I then sign our names on the card. I spend a lot of time preparing my cards for mailing. I always try to purchase cards with a spiritual picture on them. I love the manger scene with the baby Jesus.
I love to send Christmas cards to those whom I care about. I don’t feel like I have to send cards. I just want to let them know that we are thinking of them. With stamp prices the price they are now, many people have decided not to send cards. However, it is still cheaper to send a card via postal service than it is to drive and visit them. I have over 50 cards ready to put in the mail box . I also still have more to fix up.
We have already begun to receive cards from people. This year, I am hanging a clothes line on the wall to display my cards on. In the past, we have taped them to the front door. I just want to try something new this year.
