Besides Christmas, how often do you give someone a card?
One happy occasion perfect for card-sending is the arrival of a baby. Our contributor ShipshewanaIndiana shares a card that just came following the birth of a daughter.
This card was mailed by Amish friends in Arthur, Illinois.
Unlike a lot of cards sent by the Amish, this one isn’t technically homemade. But with the added stickers and flourishes (not to mention “Train up a child” from Proverbs) I think it lands somewhere in-between handmade and store-bought.
“Two little eyes that shine like stars,
A tiny mouth and a button nose,
Rose petal fingers that close on yours,
Ten little pink and curly toes,
Your baby to cherish, to hold and to love,
God’s precious gift from Heaven above.”
