The holly has been slipped into jars and the candles are lit, and my heart beats a little faster for the Jesus I want to give my children.
Jesus: the one who came quietly into this world, made quite a ruckus while He was here, and then laid down His life for me, for you, for our neighbors.
My house is prepared, the shopping nearly done, and this year, I will whisper Jesus a little louder than last year.
I will grab those little hearts that are mine for a little while and shift them towards the manger a little more.
I will tell the story of Christ, from creation to His birth, and pray that these little people will see Him a little more.
I will anticipate His coming a little more.
I will celebrate Him a little more.
I invite you to join us as we anticipate the birth of Christ. Our family will be using Ann Voskamp’s Jesse Tree Journey, as a means to elevate Christ this year. Please click on the link above if you would like to download your free copy as well!
