Tonight I located our Advent wreath. My youngest daughter Robyn located the candles and put them in the wreath and got it in position on our dining room table. This isn't the best picture, but it gives you some idea. :)
We also have the Advent "House" that I will post about and show later, as it is still hiding in the attic! I need to find and cut out all the bible verses corresponding to each day in Advent, and put up our wee tree we'll be using as a Jesse tree, and I'm getting those ornaments ready within the next few days! I am excited!!
Along with tomorrow being the First Sunday in Advent, it is also, as every Catholic knows, the first 'official' Sunday of the New Translation... closer and more beautiful to the original!! Yes, that means learning the new responses and the new prayers, but if it deepens our faith and helps us draw closer to God and helps us in this, our faith journey, then I am ready to dive right in!
