Postcard Friendship Friday/Vintage Christmas Postcards

These embossed Maine postcards are dated 1911. They are part of a collection I rescued from my husband's grandparents farmhouse. I really enjoy their wonderful color and texture.
Please vistit Postcard Friendship Friday for many vintage postcards and charming Christmas stories which started many of our traditions.

The postcard in my banner is from 1912 and is made of a very thick non-pliable material. See my Postcard Projects for ways to display vintage postcards in your home.

My new friend Judy at Cranberry Morning has a fun blog with handcrafted soaps and great links. I wanted to share with you this acrostic that came to her one evening as she pondered Christmas and the love of God.

Christ left the glories of Heaven to take on
Human form, to die, to
Rescue us from sin and death. He is not an
Infant any longer. He will be either your
Savior or your Judge.
Turn to Him and find
Mercy. He
Always welcomes the penitent and gives
Salvation and life abundant to those who trust in Him.

She also included this verse as one of the verses that shows how quickly and lovingly He forgives us as He cherishes relationship with each of us.
'Therefore, there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.' - Romans 8:1-2
Christmas Blessings to you and your families and my you find true JOY through all life's trials!

Beautiful cards. It's neat to find cards with similar layouts that go together.
