We are celebrating Advent again this year and today is the first Sunday of it.
One of my blog friends has a great post about it at
This youtube video is very helpful and explains what Advent is all about.
Growing up in Bible/Baptist churches we never celebrated it, but
last year I decided to give it a try with my children and I find it
such a peaceful and wonderful way to remember that Jesus
is the Reason we celebrate Christmas.
During Advent we are also doing a Jesse Tree devotional I got from
Ann Voskamp’s site – A Holy Experience.
Yesterday I prepared the ornaments that are hung on the tree each day
when we have our devotional time.
Also yesterday I got out tree ready and it is now sitting on our buffet.
These devotions start on November 29th and are daily up to Christmas.
