24 days to go

My hope for this Christmas season is to celebrate advent to the fullest. We are going to try to use each of our senses together each day and take a deeper look at what God did and is doing for us. May all that we are worship the miracle of God taking on flesh and dwelling among us!
With our eyes and ears:

(Specifically the section titled "Advent Wreath")

With our voices With our hands

(Our advent objects were coins. The quarter represents 25 days until Christmas. We read the story of the poor widow giving all she had at the temple (Mark 12:41-44).

With a quiet heart

John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and without Him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

I like your Advent Calendar. We have a Playmobil one this year too. You though are probably way ahead of me. I am still assembling everything into the boxes. I figure it will be done sometime before Christmas. :)
