Luke 1:32-35 ESV
The angel continued “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”
And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.
Today is Christmas tree day!
Take the family off to choose your Christmas tree; make it the central part of the day and get all the family involved in choosing just the right one. Once home, have a tree decorating party. In our home we listen to Christmas music, drink hot chocolate with candy cane stirrers, and eat special Christmas sweets as we get to work decorating our tree.
If your family has an artificial tree, take it out of storage and join in the fun today.
Take a moment or two to record the details of your day in your Family Advent Journal.
See you tomorrow for more advent fun.
