A season of Advent

Preparing our hearts for the Christ. We started incorporating advent into our traditions when the boys were babies. Every Sunday for the four Sunday's before Christmas we light a candle, read some scripture, sing songs together and pray. This has become one of our favorite things to do. In all the business that can come with this time of year, it is a time to sit and really think about the miracle that is Christ's birth.
 On Christmas morning after stockings are opened and breakfast is eaten we will light the Christ candle in the center, read the Christmas story and sing.

This year had been expecially fun as both of the boys are able to read the passages in the Bible and follow along in the hymn book. Fiona can also sing along as she has memorized many of the verses. All those little voices singing songs to Jesus! It is a beautiful thing to hear.

 For Miles; advent is his favorite part of Christmas. And for that I am thankful.

May you find time to reflect on the miracle that is Christmas.

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
