Advent--A Season of Preparing For Christmas

Forgive me for posting this so late. 

Yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent.  Today is the first day should you choose to follow this Advent devotionalso it’s not too late! 

Our family has celebrated Advent in a variety of ways down through the years.  I am excited about this devotional version of the Jesse Tree Journey written by the beautiful-word-gifted, Ann Voskamp!

Whatever you choose to do during this time of preparation... as we look forward to this special day in which to celebrate the King of Kings and Lord of Lords—make this a special time.  For it is!  Quiet your own heart and the hearts of those in your family from the world’s version of Christmas stress and material focus. 

Set your heart to seek God by seeking His Son as you read about the coming Messiah.  As you prepare for Christmas, prepare your hearts for the long-awaited One.

I pray God will bless your heart as you spend time seeking His!  He promises to do so!

Soli Deo Gloria!
