Last summer I found the greatest collection of vintage Christmas cards, each with a handwritten note and real signatures.
The images and fonts immediately pulled me to a time before cell phones, e-mail, texting and Facebook; a time when communication was intentional and took thought and effort, although we didn't realize it.
Don't get me wrong, I love keeping up with everyone through social media, but it doesn't require much effort or interaction on my part. It's more of an observation of others, rather than an interaction with others.
I'm making an early New Year's Resolution to be more deliberate in my communication with family and friends. Anyone want to join me?
I hope you enjoy these Christmas wishes from the past...
Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
Let the peace that Christ gives rule in your hearts...and be thankful.
Wishing you God's best and Merry Christmas,
