The reason for the season…

Great ideas abound, at the following links, to help us moms keep ourselves and our children focused on the real “reason for the season”!

Keeping Christ in Christmas
Advent for Evangelicals
An e-book by Ann Voskamp: The Glorious Coming: A Jesse Tree Advent Celebration a cool thing about this e-book is that all **Author royalties are being donated to
Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.**

We are using a little of everything here for our Advent celebrations. Another big part of it for us will be our nightly reading from the book Jotham’s Journey and the nightly lighting of our Advent wreath. If you don’t have the book Jotham’s Journey already, it is out of print right now while the author is looking for a new publisher, keep on the lookout for it for next year. Last year we read Bartholomew’s Passage, by the same author, and it was wonderful. Christine and I both really liked it a lot.

Admission: I did get lazy about it (our Advent readings) at the end, Joshua was still very new around here and sick a lot, and I think I was just exhausted. So….we actually just finished it! :-) Christine has been joking all year that we are still “waiting for the Messiah” because we had not yet completed the book. Little stinker! So, don’t think I am Miss Perfect Mom over here, always smiling, baking muffins, and reading our daily Advent readings…Ha,ha! I have my days where all seems right in the world and here at home, but more often than not it’s a struggle to stay focused and on Him and our daily tasks. I am a sinner in need of the grace that the Lord provided through His Perfect Son, whose coming we celebrate during Advent. Praise God for the one and only Perfect Gift!

Love one another!~Yvonne
