I am really proud of my kids during this time. They have demonstrated such positive attitudes. Each night before supper, they take turns leading our Advent prayers and lighting the candles. They haven't fussed about limiting their use of the the WII or computer. All in all, we do this in order to keep Christ in the center of our lives and in the center of The Season. Hopefully it will lead to a richer prayer experience in our home and within each of our lives.
Blessing of the Advent Wreath
God of Wonder, send down your blessing on our family's wreath.
May all of us who use it prepare a special place in our hearts for Christ's coming.
May this wreath and its light remind us of Christ's promised coming.
Send down your many blessings on our family during this holy season.
We ask this in the name of Christ, your Son and our Brother.
