With all of the hustle and bustle of the season, it can be challenging to maintain a practical focus on the birth of Christ.
A Gift of Prayer
There is one thing that I do each year that has become a special part of our family.
Each year, I give my family the gift of a verse of scripture.
With this gift comes a prayer that is echoed throughout the years.
Once I choose a gift and short prayer for each person, I write the verse and prayer on a blank index card. I fold the card in half, making a name card that I place on the table for Christmas dinner.
Some years I decorate the card a little, but most of the time I just write their name and their gift with a Sharpie and keep it simple.
