Christmas Card For My Blog Readers

This year I did not send out Christmas cards to the people who read my blog regularly.  It’s not that I don’t love you – I do – and I am so very grateful that you take time to read my blog.  I did not send you a Christmas card because you already know everything that is going on in my life!  What else can I tell you?  But it seemed wrong not to acknowledge you in any way, so this post is a Christmas Card for my blog readers.

Here is the pretty picture on the front:

Here is the family picture on the inside (John and Jackie’s hearth):




Here is the stock (but heartfelt) message on the inside of the card:

May the hope of that first Christmas, the joy of God’s abundant blessings, and the peace of Jesus’ presence be with you now and always.  May the love of God spread from your life to others and be abundantly returned to you.  

And here is the hand-written, personal message:

Thank you for making me feel like I am important in your life.  Thank you for taking the time to read about our adventures and to comment through the blog or through e-mails.  Thank you for taking time out of your incredibly busy life to keep up with us.  You are a friend of great worth.  Make sure that you let me know what is going on with your life so I can laugh, celebrate, cry, and pray with you.  Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

So that is my Christmas Card for my blog readers.  Thanks for reading and let me hear from you!
