On Day 10 of Advent, the gift from our anonymous friend was this snow globe:
And the verse was Psalm 51:7
"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me and I will be whiter than SNOW."
I love the thought that we are washed white as snow. There is nothing whiter than snow and its not only white it is glistening and so pure. I love the glowing look snow has.
Day 11 held this little rock star...
"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the ROCK eternal".
Ethan loved this. He had a special place for it and there it has stayed. When I moved it to take a photo, he got mad and put it right back.
Day 12 was this beautiful cross and verse...
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
I love this verse. It reminds me that no matter what my burdens may be, no matter my cross, Christ lives in me and he was crusified for me. I have been given a great trust. As Christians, we all have. We no longer live for ourselves, we live to spread the news of his love and grace and let others know Christ died for them too.
