Saying a Little Prayer for You

STOP!  Don't throw those Christmas cards out just yet.
There are many things you can do with your Christmas cards.  If you check out Pinterest you'll get lots of ideas, from bookmarks, gift tags, wreaths, boxes, origami stars, ornaments, more cards and the list goes on and on.  In Pinterest, just search for "Recycled Christmas Cards".

Our favorite project is to place our cards in a basket that will hold them all.  Pick a card everyday and say a prayer for the sender.  Hubby and I like to do it before our dinner meal but you can also do it during your devotional time or any other time that best fits your schedule.

What a precious and thoughtful way to pray for those special people in your lives!  I got this idea from Focus On The Family ministry decades ago.


Once you're done with each card, place it in a baggie for safe keeping and to have them ready for the next holiday season to get started on your crafts.

May God bless you and your family in the New Year to come!
Until next time,
