We joke every year that Christmastime is the only time we get fun or exciting mail. I guess it's not really a joke because it's true. But either way we love getting Christmas cards. Some people may think it's a waste of time or money, but it is a simple gesture to let your friends know you are thinking of them during this time of year. We especially love getting cards though because we keep them all year long.
A few years ago we were given the idea to put those cards to use after Christmas. Now every time we get a card we save it and add it to our prayer list. Every night before bed the kids take turns flipping to a new family and we pray specifically for them. We also put missionary cards in there as well so they can also be at the forefront of our minds throughout the year.
Every year we look forward to updated pictures from all our friends and family. The kids get so excited when we get to add all the new cards to our prayer ring.
