“A messenger is calling out in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord. Make straight paths for him.’”
Isaiah 40:3 and Mark 1:3
Advent means “the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event” and is the time of the year that Christians prepare to celebrate the arrival of Jesus at Christmas.
Talk about and decide as a family how you will prepare for Christmas.
Plan ways you will prepare physically (decorations, cookies, etc.) and ways that you will prepare your hearts (following the Advent devotional, praying as a family, etc.).
Is there something new that you could add or take away this year to help you prepare?
