I really wanted to make the transition this Christmas season to celebrating Advent. I went to an Advent workshop a few weeks ago to learn more about how to help your family celebrate Advent, and the coming of Christ. Though this year is not the year to jump in all the way and go over the top (we are planning on moving), I still wanted to begin this tradition. So with my simple Advent wreath and my already prepared Advent family devotionals, we are beginning a new tradition that I hope to add to as the years go by. A helpful site to make it easy if you are interested in checking out Advent supplies, click HERE. We are preparing our hearts to focus on Christ this Christmas season.
This first week of Advent, we light the first candle ~ the candle of hope. We have hope in our sovereign God who is the maker of heaven and earth. Hope in our savior Jesus Christ.
