Advent — Day 6

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.

Advent - Day 6

How are we like an apple?

Psalm 17:8 (NIV)

Keep me as the apple of your eye;
    hide me in the shadow of your wings

Proverbs 7:2 (NIV)

Keep my commands and you will live;
    guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.

Deuteronomy 32:10 (NIV)

In a desert land he found him,
    in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him;
    he guarded him as the apple of his eye
