Just a reminder that today is the first day of Advent! The kids and I have set up our Advent wreath but can't seem to find our candles that I purchased some time ago (to avoid the battle of finding them at the last minute. *Argh!*)
Do you plan any activities as a family for the Advent season. Our family has decided we are going to focus on two separate but related tasks -- purging and giving. We are trying to focus our attention on how truly blessed that we are... despite having "wants" we recognize so many more are less fortunate. We determined that we were going to thoroughly work through the house, finding usable - good condition items that we could share with someone else in need.
Outside of that, we once again have family and friends in need of our prayers and support. Each week we are trying to reach out and do what we can to help ease their burden.
Wishing you all a blessed Advent season! I'd love to hear from you!
