Next month, I will be posting some advent devotions/object lessons that I wrote when my children were very young. I wanted to help my family get ready for Christmas in a spiritual sense. From December 1st until Christmas day, I will post a new reading each day. Each reading is associated with an object that can point us to the qualities of Jesus, the Son of God. My husband graciously took each of the accompanying photographs.
Where there are questions, stop and think about or discuss them. If you use them with children, you may also want to make connections to their experiences. At the end there is a familiar Christmas carol or short prayer that links with the day’s theme.
It is my hope that these devotions can enrich our celebration of the birth of Jesus, who grew beyond infancy to show us the way to the Father.
