Because Jesus is the Light of the World!
This is to be our first season with a real, homemade advent wreath, and prayers, and the beginning of a beautiful tradition.
In usual Jamie-fashion, I was a couple days late getting it together. But alas, with some greenery and holly berries and a few pine cones from the yard, and yet another trip to the store for candles...we are ready to light it up! And so at dinner last night we did. Complete with a little background about the meaning, brief prayers/reflections...it was lovely.
And the best was when little Charlie excitedly interrupted..."Mom, do you know why we light candles and string christmas lights?"
"Tell my why," I begged.
"Because Jesus IS the light of the world, you know.!"
