In our family, we like to put up lights around the house and decorate outside. (We don’t put up a tree until December 17th or later because we wait until after El’s birthday to keep both occasions separate.)
I love to add lights to the house because not only does it give a “warm” feeling when you drive up to your home, but it also serves as a reminder that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Our church is fully decorated as well and our plans are to hit tonight’s Saturday service and be able to see all of these beautiful lights there as well.
So, your goal for today is to decorate outside your home for advent. Make sure that you get your kids involved too. They will remember things like this FOREVER!
Griffen and Lar went outside to get these up for me. (It was starting to get a bit cold out and I was tired after having a day at school too.) Even one of our dogs – “Runcle Robbie” as the kids call him helped supervise! You know, it is seriously incredible to be married to such a tall man… I mean, I would need to tote around a ladder to hang those lights!
Luke 1:31 -You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.
