We Are Grateful for Christmas Lights

We're trying to maintain an attitude of gratitude throughout the holiday season this year.  When I ran across this suggestion somewhere on the internet, I knew we had to try it.

We enjoy seeing the lights with which people decorate their homes at this time of year.  When we see a good display, we'll point it out to each other, oohing and ahhing.  We might even think, "Wow, that took a lot of work."  Shouldn't we thank the people who go to such effort, or display such good taste?

This year we plan to jot down the addresses of our favorite displays, and send thank you notes to those creative folks.  Here is a postcard I designed for the purpose:

The back quotes John 8:12, wherein Jesus Christ declares himself to be the Light of the World, and leaves space for the address, stamp, and signature.  If you would like to print this postcard for your own use, click here for the PDF!

  1. This is exactly what I was looking for!! It's so late at night my brain just wasn't putting my thoughts in any coherent order. Thank you for doing it for me and in this beautiful layout. We'll be using this tomorrow for our family activity but using a combination of thumbprints and bits of old burnt out Christmas lights to make the strands on the card more personalized.
