Are You Ready?

It's Christmas week!

My decorations are on display....... (Amidst a wall I still have yet to change.......:) )

....my goodies are baked and eagerly awaiting consumption.......

.....my gifts are completely wrapped and packed for their prospective celebrations......

.....yet I keep coming back to this.....

Am I truly prepared to celebrate the little baby who changed my life?

Are you?

Talk about economy of words and significance of impact. WOW! Great post. Thanks.

I've been doing an advent activity this year with my kids. Each morning they open the advent box and find a little goody and then we read a verse or two or three of the Christmas story. The kids have really enjoyed the activity and it has been a great tool to continually remind their little hearts of the real reason we celebrate Christmas.

And I have really enjoyed reading the verses too. I think it is the first time that I've ever gone through them slowly. Usually I read the entire passage at once, but it has been nice to do it slowly and remember little details of the story that I haven't concentrated on before.

@H Comings - Thank you! I have been trying to work on the types of words I use. :)

@Melissa - That sounds like a really awesome idea! I love that it keeps the Christmas story in the front of their minds every day leading up to Christmas!
