Advent Calendar

Advent: Day 1

I have always loved the idea of advent calendars.  When my children were young, we always incorporated daily activities, stories, etc., in the days leading up to December 25.  While they did not follow the pattern of Advent, those daily fun reminders helped us draw closer as a family and kept our focus on the joy of the season.

This year I decided I wanted to use my blog as a place to share daily moments of Christmas joy with you.  I hope this will be a place you will want to visit at some point during your day to share the delight of the season.

Hallelujah!

Did you know?  In the Hebrew form, Hallelujah is an imperative.  It is not our expression to God, although the word has evolved into this modern usage.  It is actually a command to us: “[You] praise God!”

If you have a little extra time, here’s an interesting documentary on Handel’s Messiah.
