Looking Forward To Advent

We are blessed to be able to enjoy one more Christmas celebration before we move away from family and friends.  Looking at our calendar (which is a breathtaking event for us at this time) we have noticed how few days we have between now and Christmas that are not already claimed by a mixture of family, friends, and meetings.  The hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving and Christmas are already consuming our thoughts.  This year, more than any other year for our family, it will be difficult to be still and focus on the incarnation of Christ.  Despite the difficulty we are committed to carve out a healthy Holy moment each day to consider the meaning and the events of Advent.  We will be using a devotion written by Timothy in 2013 called Christmas Devotions (Click Here to order from Amazon) and we invite you to do the same with your family.  We will be starting our Christmas Devotions on November 24th this year which will allow us to read our last devotion on Christmas day.

Regardless if you join us in Christmas Devotions or you find another devotion it is our prayer that you find a way to incorporate Christ in your daily life this Advent season.

In His Grip,

The Downings
