Today, was the first Sunday of Advent and it was also the first Sunday that me and my family has ever observed Advent. Last year I blogged about my disappointment in the Christmas season going by so fast. Well, this year we bought an Advent candle holder at Family Christian Stores and we had a wreath that it fit perfectly with. (I posted a picture below.)
We also a book to help guide us through the season that is entitled A Family Advent: Keeping the Savior in the Season and it has readings for each day. I am really excited to bring a whole new depth of meaning to this holiday season and I am hopeful that this will not only bring our family closer to God, but closer to each other as well. If this morning’s reading and discussion was any indication I think it will definitely be true.
