Snow is definitely not in the air, but my toes are a tad cool. It is a pleasant day here in the Philippines with only a high of 88 degrees with 74% humidity. Clouds overhead definitely won’t produce snow, but maybe a sprinkle. Even with no chance of snow, Ginger has decorated our home with snowmen on the walls, on the pillows, and on the shelf. Ginger loves seasons and holidays, even if they aren’t observed where we live. So, in January we have snowmen everywhere in our living and dining room. In February, Ginger replaces the snowmen with hearts and flowers. In May, she decorates the house with tulips. Every month, Ginger has a theme to match a holiday or a special event . . . like our anniversary.
Each and every month, the decorations change, but not our Christmas card wall. This is a special place that Ginger hangs all the Christmas cards we received from the previous Christmas. Each night just before heading to bed, Ginger takes a Christmas card down and places it on the dining table. The following day, our family prays for the sender during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As the day comes to an end, Ginger hangs that Christmas card on the wall again and takes another one down for the next day.
In the past, we have taken all the Christmas cards down on January 1st and hung up all the new cards we just received, and the tradition of praying continues on. Well, this year, there were no new cards (probably due to delays in the postal service). So, this year, all the Christmas cards we received in 2019 will remain on the wall. Please know we are praying with you and thinking about you. Looking forward to enjoying each of these seasons in the States soon.
