A couple of months ago, Russell and I decided to create our family advent calendar. I enjoyed the project so much because it allowed me to be creative with the sewing machine, as well as with hand embroidery!
Each pouch will contain a little something sweet (a fun candy or chocolate) for Rhys as he gets older, but most importantly, each will hold a piece of cardstock with the Scripture verses from this Daily Advent Reading, which we will read together as a family leading up to December 25th, the birthdate of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
