I know that there was some commenting that people weren't really sure what Advent was or hadn't thought to put some spiritual aspect to it. I wanted to share some information with you all about Advent. The word advent actually means, "coming," and it is a time when we reflect on the time when Christ came to earth (Christmas).
The other day, Cathi At Granny's House posted a link to another blog called A Holy Experience. The writers of that blog have put together an amazing Jesse Tree free e-book. I did a Jesse tree with my children 3 years ago, and it was really good. I think this one is better. It has scripture readings for every day of Advent (starting Nov. 30, but it's okay to jump in a bit late!) and pictures that go with the readings that can be cut out and put on a tree. We are making a paper tree to put on the wall and putting the cut out pictures on that. Anyway, click on the link in the post at Granny's blog or go directly to A Holy Experience if you want a resource for making your Advent idea have a spiritual aspect to it!
