Advent is a time for remembering and reflecting on the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let us not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season this year and miss the chance to celebrate the gifts of hope, peace, joy, love, that was sent to us on that first Christmas…We were given the gift of HOPE wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger.
This first week of December my boys and I went to the Missouri Botanical garden for the absolute best light show! We enjoyed walking through the lit up property in awe of the gorgeous displays!
Jack Jingles our Elf on a Shelf came back for some fun, too! haha!
I love having the Christmas decor up! The twinkling lights just make everything look so much prettier. (Tallulah loves them, too!)
I also sang at the Table of Grace function for the women at church. We get to fellowship with friends , eat good food, listen to a great message, and celebrate the Reason for the Season!
That was most of the first week of December! The hustle and bustle is upon us, but I sincerely HOPE we put what matters most at the forefront of our minds this CHRISTmas season!
