I had no idea the Advent Calendar would be such a hit! Each morning when I mention the words Advent Calendar their is a squeal of excitement by both Toby and Lydia. The pattern has been so cemented in that Toby takes off running for Daddy’s office to grab Daddy’s Bible and Lydia runs to the book shelf and points to the Calendar. We all sit down by the Christmas Tree and we read a few verses, have a prayer, and then joyously open the little door of the day.
The repetition of this morning activity is something that I want to continue. I often wondered how one goes about creating family devotion time and now we just sort of stumbled into it. Jenny and I are now having conversations about what we transition to from the Advent Calendar. I’m open to any ideas you might have.
