Inspired by Ann Voskamp’s A Jesse Tree Advent Celebration- An Invitation to unwrap more of His Love, in which she writes:
“…you may have seen an advent calendar hanging some where today, one of those calendars with 25 little door flaps to peek under, a way of counting the days down until Christmas, a way of opening the door everyday and saying, “Come In, Jesus!” This opening of doors can be a way of opening doors and eyes and heart to Him.”
I now have new eyes through which to view a favorite Christmas tradition in our home. As I watch my children open up their chocolate advent calendar doors , I simply can’t help but find myself praying for the hearts of my boys. Lord, with each opening of a door, would you open their hearts to more of You?
As we count down the days to the celebration of His arrival to dwell among us, let every one of our hearts, prepare Him room!
Jesus, our hearts, Your Home!
Joy to the world!
