My intentions are good. Some years I am on top of things, and everything falls into place. This is not that kind of year. I started this process of choosing a Christmas card in November. I had everything planned, and it was going to be easy. I had an amazing assortment of wonderfully beautiful pictures. I had most of the addresses ready to go from the wedding, and now Christmas is just days away, and I never got around to finishing.
I love Christmas cards. I love cards in general. I love writing a simple message of love and thinking about each person and how much they mean to me as I prepare each card to be mailed. But this year I got sick and lost weeks just trying to survive, nothing serious a terrible sinus infection, but the medications gave me some adverse effects. I wondered which was worse the infection or the drugs.
So this year it will just be a digital version and will perhaps only reach a few who come and visit here, but please know that I thought about you, the people I love to send cards to. Know that you have been in my heart and how much you mean to me. This might be impersonal, but this year I hope you will forgive impersonal.
From our house to yours. We wish you the merriest of holidays. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, we are filled with peace and joy of His life and ministry. He is our all.
