Works-For-Me Wednesday!

What do you do with your old Christmas cards? Many people reuse them in various types of craft projects like ornaments, cards, etc. This year, I stumbled upon a wonderful idea that I thought I would share with you- my avid readers. Haha! Now that all of our Christmas cards have been taken off of display, I have placed them in a basket on the table. Each night before dinner we will pull out one card and pray for that particular family. We will spend time thanking God for each member of the family and for their friendship. We will pray for their health, safety, relationships with one another and with Christ, and any other requests that we know of. I think this will be a meaningful way to keep the spirit of Chrismas alive on into the new year! This idea definitely Works-For-Me!

I heard of this wonderful idea years ago and it is a very good way to add to your prayer support of others.
When someone comes in they want to know why you have Christmas cards still out and it is a good witness to them.
One problem I have had is doing great the first few months and then forgetting to do them. Hope this year I will keep it up all year. Love Ya, Elaine
