Advent for Bob and me

 

Hi Friends,

On this Sunday afternoon, Bob and I sit relaxing in our great room. I am contemplating all the things I still have to do for Christmas.  I just love the sights, sounds, and smells of the season. I decorate until things begin to look “tacky.” In the midst of all the wrappings, I am keenly aware of the greatest gift the world has ever received-JESUS.   Bob and I have decided to take a few minutes every evening to light our Advent candle and have a short devotional and let the peace of Christ fill our hearts.

I wanted to share our beautiful Advent Wreath.  Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus.

This is a little table that I gave Dad many years ago depicting the Adoration of the new born king. There are many stains on it as he used it for his coffee and treats every day.  It brings joy to my heart.

Hope you are having a great Sunday.

Dianne

  1. Hey Dianne, Just love your preview to All your CHRISTMAS that is yet to come. Your Advent wreath is very unique. Have never seen one like this before that included all of the Holy Night. I must see, in person, this very special side table your Dad so enjoyed. Peace and Blessings to you.
