An Unusual Advent Wreath

We saw this Advent wreath at the Belleville Cathedral Sunday, and I think it’s the most unusual Advent wreath I’ve ever seen. It’s very pretty in its own unique way!

Don’t Forget Advent!

P1210021

Last year, I shared some of our preparations for Advent. I think it’s worth reading again. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and all of the hustle and bustle of those busy holidays, it can be easy to overlook this holy season of preparation. But Advent is important, because not only are we preparing ourselves for Jesus’ birth, but also His second coming, whenever that may be.

So, take a moment to think about how you’re going to observe Advent. Make sure you have your Advent candles ready. If you want to prepare some ornaments for a family Jesse Tree, get to work. Find a special book to read each night, or a new Advent hymn to learn. And prepare your hearts for the coming of our Savior! Only two weeks left until the first Sunday of Advent…get ready!
