Just for the JOY of it!

 Since the Holiday season is upon us and I know I will soon be receiving everyone's FUN holiday cards in the mail I thought I would share an idea we came up with a couple of years ago at our home. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting pictures of family's this time of year but always hated throwing them away after New Year's was over. So I turned this simple bulletin board into "Our Prayer Board". Each year for the past two years I loved being able to display these lovely pictures on our board and it helps to be our visual remind of who we can pray for. We put up the prayer cards of Missionaries, and holiday cards we get from family and friends. Last year I even covered the board with a winter fabric, and then put the pictures on.....then I realized we were so blessed with so MANY cards you couldn't even see the i decided to remove it.
Throughout the year it brings such JOY to my heart to see these smiling faces each time we come in the door to our home! Our guests always love looking at our board too!

what a wonderful idea! A prayer list, a memory center and a blessing, all rolled into one. I'm going to have to find a spot like that in our house. So great!

Love this idea! Now I just have to try to find a spot on my walls...
Sharon did a fabulous job on the new header and button. Can't wait for mine to be done, too.
