With all the technology we have today, handwritten cards and letters are becoming less common. But I just love cards! Christmas cards, birthday cards, thank you cards, just-because cards…each one I receive throughout the year is placed inside a special box on my table. And there they wait until January 1st.
On the first day of the new year, I mix up all the cards and put them back into the box. Then at dinner each night I pull out whichever one is on top. I reread the card and spend some time praying for that person or family. Not only does it encourage my heart to revisit each card I have received, but it motivates me to pray for those who have, at some point, thought of me. :) Here’s to a new year and the blessings of prayer and friendship!
