It has been a busy Summer, and busy Autumn...a busy year, really, and I'm tired, and wondering where the days have disappeared. But now we are counting down the days 'til the Coming, lighting another candle each evening, waiting for the Light.
The Advent Log idea comes from this book, which we will probably use as soon as I have time to dig it out of storage. Meanwhile, we are using Ann Voskamp's Jesse Tree Devotional series, and really enjoying it. (Something that has helped make the Jesse tree idea more interesting to the Monkeys.)
Zaccheus stands tall at the top of our Jesse tree, stretching, straining to see Jesus coming. And we remember why we're waiting, and all those who waited before.
