The first Christmas cards have checked in!
The card at the top of the post is from good friends at church. They gave us this card, along with a lovely jar of homemade applesauce as an early Christmas gift on Sunday. They left today for three months in South Africa, so they were doing their Christmas gifting early. I would have to say that November 27 is probably the earliest I have ever received (and opened) a Christmas card.
On Tuesday, we received a lovely photo card from friends in Pennsylvania. I promptly sent one out in return, and I've sent out all of my swap cards, but that's it for sending cards so far. I enjoy sending cards in response to the ones I've received.
With the first day of December come many opportunities to get into an Advent Bible study or Bible reading challenge. I encourage you to do just that --- it will deepen the meaning of Christmas for you. Later this evening perhaps I can post some links to studies that have blessed my heart in the past, as well as to those I'm enjoying this year.
Happy first day of December, all!
