First, thank you to everyone that participated in the SB Christmas card exchange this year. It is such a blessing to my family every year. It is my privilege to organize this and I look forward to doing it again next year. I love my SB family. We don't walk this journey alone, and I'm glad we don't have to.
Second, do you ever wonder what to do with all those Christmas cards you receive each year? It would be a shame to just toss all these beautiful cards in the trash. A couple of years ago I decided that I would take one card a week and pray over that family/person. Sometimes I would contact the person directly to see if there was anything in particular they needed prayer over. I admit that I wasn't always consistent and I would often forget. I'm giving it another go this year. I'm determined to get through the entire stack of cards in 2015.
At the beginning of every week I will pull out one card and make a commitment to pray for that family/person for the rest of the week. I plan to involve the boys in this as well. It's a blessing to take the time to pray for others. Sometimes we forget that. I know I forget that. I'm committing to praying for others in 2015. Are you?
