gearing up for Christmas . . . in July?
Do you remember the series of posts I wrote on Advent in 2011? Perhaps you liked the idea of making an Advent Tree for your family, but lacked the time to make one during a busy holiday season. Don't let Christmas sneak up on you this year! Here's a friendly nudge to start getting ready now. I originally made ours in July . . . maybe you can make yours in August!
Click HERE to see all of my Advent Tree posts (including pictures, Scriptures, and devotions). If you decide to try it I'd love to hear how it goes!
