Our Door Of Love

We are having so much fun...
reading your Christmas letters and praying for you!

We love receiving letters/pics from our family and friends during Christmas. I always open them, read the letter and take a peek at the pic. Then I tuck everything back into the envelope and put it in our Christmas letter basket. 
There they accumulate. 
There they wait. 
Then when the holidays are over and we are back into our daily routine, we pick an envelope each morning before our "special time" (aka devotions). We read the letter and pass around the picture. Then I tell the children how we know that person/family (if they don't know) and fun things/memories of them. 
Then the fun part...
We all pray for that family!
After the family is prayed for the picture gets hung up on our schoolroom door.
We are reminded of you daily!
We love you.
(if you don't see your pic - we are not through the basket of letters yet...still more to come!)

What a great idea! I need to be more diligent in hanging pictures of friends up. We don't have a free door, but the fridge would work. They always get nasty there, but now we have a laminator...
