|From my collection of vintage cards ~ I'd never cut these up for a project! To me, this one speaks of a simpler, more innocent time when no one would dream of taking anyone else's mail.|
Some of the cards are from the 1960s or so, others from the 1970s through the 1990s. The quote I want to share is a message from one of the older cards. I was just now sitting at the sewing machine, about to attach this pennant to the ribbon, when I read the message again. Such a lovely thought, I had to pause in my sewing and share it with you all. It reads like this:
Isn't that lovely? (Picture it, if you will in a red 1950s script not unlike that on the old Betty Crocker cookbooks.) A lot has changed over time, and much has been lost, not only in our lives personally but in our society. I was just thinking yesterday how increasingly vulgar our society has become. But my happy recollections of Christmas in the 1950s and early 1960s are still with me, precious and warm. And most important of all, the whole reason for Christmas remains -- celebrating the birth of our Savior, who is "the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).
