It made his special season wonderful and personal.
I wrote in my last post about our Advent wreath tradition, and this year I've incorporated a card a day into Advent too. Using 25 days of Bible verses I located here after a google search, I've made an Advent calendar door. During a quick trip to Michael's I found these gold envelopes and little gift stickers.
Sorry for the blur, school nights don't allow for pictures perfect.
As much as I wanted to pre-read some of the verses, I did not. Day one, Saturday, holds a card that reads "Sharing" on the front and John 3:1-21 on the other. You can go ahead and read that if you'd like, just don't tell me what it says. Yet.
Really, they're gold.
It's kind of bland now but as cards are read, the red and green will peek.
It will make this special time of year wonderful and personal.
May you usher in Advent well.
P.S. Brad decided we should turn all the cards to make the door more colorful, so after our first reading tonight (Christmas is for Sharing, John 3:1-31), we did just that.
