Advent - "Coming"

We are in the advent season, awaiting the "coming" of the Christ. Things have been pretty quiet around here since Thanksgiving. We did make a trip to San Angelo and had a wonderful weekend just spending time with family and friends, staying inside since it actually felt like "winter"! But other than that, the Mr. is on Christmas break from classes and we are just spending our days together, sticking to our routine, relishing in these days before our little one turns ONE, and counting down until Christmas.

We are doing the Jesse Tree advent devotional book countdown by Ann Voskamp, an amazing author. We do them after dinner, before the bedtime routine, and Wyatt is usually running around with spatulas in both hands, squealing, so we read and pray while giggling but it makes for good memories! Of course, he doesn't understand the meaning behind our countdown or even why there is a tree in the living room and lights all over the windows, but we "teach" him the reason for the season anyways =)

"How Many Kings" is a song that I listen to over and over during the Christmas season, and sometimes throughout the year too. It is truly amazing that the Creator of the universe would reach out to us, individually and personally, by sending His Son in the most unlikely way... as an infant, in a stable, among farm animals.. literally becoming the least to love, serve, and save all people.

The chorus says, "How many kings step down from their thrones? How many lords have abandoned their homes? How many greats have become the least for me? .... Only one did that for me."

What a story it is!

So the blog is quiet in December as we countdown to His birth day... we are also preparing for the Mrs.'s family coming from Georgia to spend the entire week of Christmas with us! And finishing up the details for Wyatt's 1st birthday party.
Merry Christmas! I'm sure we will have lots of pictures to post at the end of the month! =)
