Since December 1st, we’ve been doing a story and scripture advent, along with the traditional chocolate kind. Colin’s mom sent us a book, right after Thanksgiving, which contains many family-cherished Christmas tales and recipes.
Every night we read a scripture about the life of Jesus, a story from the collection, and eat a chocolate from our gingerbread house advent calendar.
We have loved this nightly focus on the Lord to remind us why we celebrate the season. It’s been a special way to come together with carols, tree lights, and beautiful stories.
We are thankful for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ– for his life, ministry, sacrifice, and atonement.
Merry Christmas to all!
