I love how God lights the path for us to walk on...  come let us walk in the light of the Lord Isaiah 2:5

This is our first year celebrating Advent together as a family.  It has taken my love for Christmas to a whole new level.  The very first night as my middle boy was placing our first ornament on the Jesse tree I knew Christmas was going to be amazing.  He started to say his prayer for "Hope"...he started to pray for loved ones who don't have Jesus in their hearts, he prayed for children who are cold, hungry and lonely...then he just stopped fell into me and sobbed.   My Brady, sweet genuine tears full of compassion, and love for people.  His desire wanting everyone to have Jesus in their heart. Christmas to be celebrated because of the greatest gift given, Jesus.  

Every night we are learning something new, and our hearts are being forever changed.  Thank you Pastor James for the Advent series going on, thank you Ann Voskamp for the beautiful Advent book, thank you my friend Lori for helping a non-crafty woman put together a beautiful wreath.  Most of all thank you God for sending forth your son into this world.  First laid in a wooden cradle and then nailed to a wooden cross.  All for love, a love like no other.

 This book is great, and an heirloom that will be passed down to the generations after.
