Celebrating Christmas...Simply: A Christmas Card from Rodney, Mississippi
Every year or so I like to create a special Christmas Card to send to my clients, family and closest friends. I usually have around 15-20 cards that I make available to those that request them. The only problem is I only have a limited number and I always get more requests than I have cards available. Unfortunately, this means that some that request a card won't get one. I try to not send to the same group of people each year so more can enjoy the cards.
Each year the card features one of my photographs with a little Christmas magic. Since I only send out 75 cards, I take the time to sign and number each individual card. Those lucky enough to receive the cards seem to appreciate them.
This years card featured the old piano at Rodney Presbyterian Church in Rodney, Mississippi. For those of you that may not know, Rodney was once a bustling river town but due to a change of course in the Mississippi River around 1870 there isn't much left now but a few crumbling ruins.
The inside of the card reads:
CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME TO SHARE LOVE AND JOY.
A TIME TO RECOLLECT BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES
IT IS A TIME TO SIT BACK AND RELAX.
ENJOY THE CHRISTMAS SEASON...
