Whatcha Going to do With All Those Christmas Cards

I love this time of year for many, many reasons.  One is because of the Christmas cards and letters we get.  As much as I love Facebook and the ability to see your pictures everyday, there is still something special about getting your picture snail mail style.

But come January and you are taking down the tree and decorations, you are always left wondering what to do with those cards.  You feel bad throwing them away, because that's someones face you are pouring day old coffee grounds on.  Yet you are not sure where to stash them, so you either pitch them now or wait til June, feel justified and pitch them then.

I have a solution for you this year!

You know those cute flip photo albums...
 Source: Amazon
Put the cards in there, one per slot.  Then either by yourself or as a family, pray for those people.  You will have a little prayer album all year.  You can choose to flip the pictures once a day, once a week, or once a month.  Now you won't feel guilty for getting rid of or forgetting about those beautiful picture cards and you are also covering someone in prayer.  How cool!

Then next year you can replace their old card with the new one :)

Merry Christmas carding!

That is such a great idea, Kate! I think I got rid of one of those flip things when we moved because I rarely print photos and couldn't think of anything to use it for. I wish I had kept it now!
