What do you do with your Christmas Cards at the end of the season?
Today I’ve pulled down my Christmas Cards. The last couple of years I’ve made a string tree by taping the Christmas string to our glass bricks, with mini pegs to peg the cards on with. I’ve added a star decoration at the top. I always have trouble displaying my cards as we often get a beautiful breeze through the house. The card tree lasted quite well, once I taped it correctly but it had started to fall down, so it was time for the cards to come down.
For the last 5 years or so we have then placed these cards into a box or basket. A few times a week after dinner (whoever said grace before dinner), gets to choose a card & pray for the people who sent the card. It is an easy idea to help remember who sent the cards. You could keep repeating this as a basis for prayer cards to use all year. We usually only do it once & then recycle the cards. I usually keep any handmade cards for ideas.
Another idea would be to do something nice for the person/people who sent the card. Or even just send them a message to let them know that you are thinking/praying for them. Or even ask if they have any prayer needs.
