Oh how I love Christmas!! I have to admit, I liked it a whole lot more in California where the sun continued to shine and some years could be spent at the beach, but none the less, I love Christmas, ice cold Canadian weather and all.
Christmas is so full of lessons on generosity, faith, and the importance of child-like wonderment. It is a time that Christians can proudly and boldly teach others about the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a time that we can show love by reaching deep into our often shallow pockets and spend money on others, many times, people we don’t even know. It is a time that we can encourage our kids to believe in the magic of Santa Claus and the excitement of ripping open beautifully wrapped presents on Christmas morning, knowing that someday they will have the honor of doing the same for their own children. And, the best part, is that all of this doesn’t happen in just one day, it happens over the span of the entire month of December or possibly even longer.
One of the most important traditions Rusty and I have participate in every year, is sending out Christmas cards. It has always been important to us to let others know that we are thinking of them during the Christmas season, but it is also important for us to spread the message of Christ’s birth as far and as wide as we can. So each year, as I design our cards, I have made sure to include a bible verse or a small passage, as a reminder to everyone who receives one that Jesus is the reason for the season.
This year, we were able to partner with Tiny Prints to spread the Christmas cheer through beautiful and custom Christmas cards. I have never been so excited to get our Christmas cards in the mail and out to the homes of our closest friends and family. Tiny prints allowed me to select a design that I loved from hundreds of options, and trust me, it wasn’t easy to chose just one. They gave me the option to design a custom envelope liner, which is how I was able to include our bible passage this year. They also offered the ability to import the addresses of everyone receiving a card from us and the envelopes arrived pre-addressed. Lets be honest, addressing the cards is always the hardest part of sending out cards and this year, that was all on Tiny Prints.
If you haven’t yet designed your own Christmas card or Christmas cards is something you have always wanted to do, but never actually gets done, check out Tiny Prints ASAP. Thank you Tiny Prints for such a generous gift during the Christmas season. We will be sure to pass on your generosity.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
