How dark outside!
but see -- a star's in the sky;
Mary and Joseph are passing by.
So let's light a candle to welcome them
as they go on their way to Bethlehem.
Our homemade Advent wreath with four candles lit.
We are eager for your birthday, Lord Jesus. We love the ornaments on the tree and the decorations all around. We love the making and the wrapping, and the happy secrets we keep. But most of all we love you, Lord. We love you for loving us so much that you wanted to be a human being just like us.
(Please note that the prayers and images that we use for our Advent wreath prayer cube came from somewhere else, but unfortunately I don't remember where.)
