Christmas Cards

by adustyframe ~ December 21st, 2010

Throughout these years that Lee wasn’t home, I tried to send Christmas cards. I wasn’t always very motivated.

Every year they were only a photo of James. My friends who didn’t know didn’t need to know, so I sent cards with no letter.

Sometimes I didn’t get them out. Sometimes I did.

This year choosing cards and mailing them out was a joy.  I used my Shutterfly credit for blogging about their cards.

Sending a card with a family photo blessed me more than I can express.

A man at church said, “That is a lovely photo on your Christmas card.” I said, “Yes, it’s the first time in years we could take a family photo.”

He said, “That’s what I meant when I said lovely.”

He’s right. It’s so lovely and wonderful all at the same time.

Thank you, Lord.

    How wonderful, Lizzie! For so long, I would not even take a picture of the girls and I, because I felt we were not a complete family. I finally realized I’d better take the pictures while I could–the girls wanted pictures with me in them. I cannot wait to be able to take pictures like yours. Praise God for all He’s done for you this year!
