A few years ago, I gave up doing traditional Christmas cards. I wanted to. I tried. But it felt stressful instead of peaceful, and at the encouragement of a friend, I let it go. I felt guilty and sometimes still do, but mostly, I feel relieved. I love getting cards in the mail and sweet pictures from friends. It’s such a delight. I hope I sneak by staying on their lists even though I’ve dropped the ball myself.
So I thought I’d write my Christmas note right here. That way there’s no stamps or envelopes…you get the picture. 😉
I want to say Merry Christmas to each of you. I’ve loved hearing your comments over the year and receiving emails or messages from so many of you. It blesses me. Thank you for taking the time to reach out.
I hope and pray that you’re are loved and cherished this season, that you enjoy time with friends and family, and that God meets you wherever you are. I’m constantly reminding myself during this season of rushing and planning that he wants me as I am. He cares about our smallest concerns, and he loves us so much bigger than we can ever comprehend.
I’m blogging over at Mundane Faithfulness about the Real Hope of Christmas. We welcome you to pop over and read through some of the beautiful Advent and Christmas blogs that have been such a blessing in the last few weeks.
I pray the celebration of the birth of our savior finds you surrounded by love, peace and joy.
