As a young girl, I remember counting down to Christmas with an advent calendar. I shared this memory with my husband, and he went out a purchased this calendar for our family to continue the tradition. Along with the countdown, we are reading a daily advent devotional by John Piper. The devotion has been an awesome reminder of the true meaning of the Christmas season. It's very easy to get caught up in shopping, decorating, entertaining, and not truly acknowledging and celebrating Christ. What are you doing to truly celebrate Christ this season?
