Advent — Day 16

If you’re anything like me, you are pretty jazzed this time of the year! It’s the Season of Advent on the Church Calendar.

Advent is the time when we anticipate the coming of our LORD. We look back, remembering His coming to us as a baby long ago; and we look forward to His coming again – any day!

My son Simon’s kindergarten and first grade teacher, Joanna Gellermann, like her mother before her, had an annual tradition of giving her students an Advent Bag. The class parents were awestruck!

Twenty-five tiny gifts in a small paper bag were actually object lessons for the Bible passages tucked inside! Kids and their families got to unwrap the season with a reason, one day at a time.

This Advent series is dedicated to my Sister in Christ, Joanna Gellermann.

Sky Blue Christmas Light

This one little Christmas light isn’t very bright by itself, but if you add the light of many others, what a wonderful glow!

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
