Place a small family photo above the message and take a photo. Also add small props, such as a baseball mitt if one of the kids plays baseball, or ballet slippers, for example. Get this reproduced as your Christmas card to send to friends and relatives. You could also create a photo book including each family member in a photo with a different message and a different room/ background.

Also include items that they think are one of God’s miracles. Paste them into a scrapbook, or slip items into a small one photo per page photo book. Give it                         as a gift to someone who needs laughter more than you do.

For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
