Christmas Cards of Prayer

Today, I’m guest posting for my dear friend, Glynnis Whitwer who is celebrating A Sweet and Simple Christmas on her blog.  Glynnis has been sharing with her readers different ideas on how to make this time of the year very special and memorable without it becoming overwhelming for you and your family.  

If you’re stopping by from Glynnis’ blog today, welcome! I’m so glad to meet you and would love to introduce you to my family.

 As you can see, I live in a house full of males, so Christmas can sometimes be extra tricky for me. My guys are not into baking cookies, long leisurely trips to the mall, or sipping lattes while getting Christmas pedicures. But, they love celebrating Christmas and always want to keep this mamma happy.  After all, when mamma’s not happy – nobody’s happy. Or, so is the saying in our house.

We do enjoy going to Christmas concerts and celebrating the holidays with friends. A nighttime ride through neighborhoods while looking at Christmas lights and a quick shopping trip for presents works too.  There is always Christmas music and candles lit at our home during this time of year. The sweet aroma of cinnamon, french vanillla, and spruce pine greet our guests each time we open the front door.

Something extra special that we love as a family is getting Christmas cards in the mail. I’ve shared the reason why how we make this a very special time for our family on Glynnis’ blog. So, hop on over to her sight and find out more.

 While you’re there, be sure to sign up for my giveaway or leave a comment here. Since 2013 is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to give away a Proverbs 31 Devotional book called God’s Purpose for Every Woman. It’s one of my favorite devotional books of all time!

Merry Christmas from our family to your! May you experience God’s love, grace, provision, and presence this holiday season and draw closer as a family as you seek to serve Him.




  1. I thank you so much for the sharing and encouragement you both shared this morning! I praise God for loving us and sending His son the be born and take our place at the cross! It is such a blessing and I wouldn’t want to imagtion life without Him!! Pray for the families in Conneitcit who will be missing their children this Christmas!! So sad…may they find HOPE!

  2. Thank you for sharing your post on Glynnis’ this morning. Reminds me years ago of hearing Emilie Barnes tell how she would put all her Christmas cards in a basket and then beginning January 1 she would take out one card each day and pray for that family…Great ideas!

    • Thank you for leaving a comment, sweet friend.

      I don’t know you’re name but I’m praying a special blessing over you today. Trusting that God knows exactly what you need. Oh, that He would lavish His gracious love on you as trust in His provision and protection.


  3. Your blog post with Glynnis this morning was so inspiring. It is a perfect way to remember and pray for those who are far away. I do have a prayer request. I have a daughter that has walked away from the Lord and is involved with the occult. My heart breaks for her and her children. I would ask for prayers for protection for the grandchildren and a renewing of her heart.

    • Rebecca,
      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. I’m so sorry to hear about your precious daughter and will be praying for her today. I pray that she will be drawn back to her first love, Jesus. He is the only One who can completely fill and fulfill all of our needs.

      I’m also praying for your sweet grandchildren’s protection.

      Blessings & Merry Christmas,
