What a wonderful blessed week it has been! The hubby had 5 days off, so we were able to enjoy lots of family time, my favorite thing!! We went and gawked at Christmas lights (I personally love Christmas lights can not get enough of them!), decorated for Christmas season, visited Santa, had Christmas movie night, kicked off our 25 days to Christmas count-down/Advent, did some baking, and Christmas present wrapping!! We started school back on Monday this week and Abigail made the most important decision to accept Jesus as her Savoir!! Praises!!! So this mama heart is full!!
We started our Christmas count-down on December 1 and the kids opened a Christmas gift which included Christmas pj's, stuffed animal for each, and with two movies for the Christmas season. So we enjoyed a night with special treats and movie time on Monday!
This year for Christmas season we are incorporating the Jesse Tree Ornaments we made in MOPS a few years ago, along with a daily advent reading plan from the Jesus Storybook Bible. In addition I am personally doing the advent story from Good Morning Girls called Keeping Our Hearts Focused On Jesus!
It was a busy fun week for school this week. We had literature club and 4H!
Here are some snapshots of our week:
This week's encouraging reads:
That’s it. That’s everything. And when you realize the impact of this, it truly is everything! No hoops, no penance, no working at all. Just faith. You can’t buy it by good works, friends, because it’s not for sale. http://joyfilleddays.com/jesus-the-generous-gift-giver/
