A few years ago, Lindsey inspired me to make an Advent Wreath. I used a big glass platter I had gotten from my grandmother, some pretty candle holders I had, and a wreath and some greenery from Dollar Tree. The most difficult part was finding purple votives!
Each year we have used a different Advent devotion. Often I made them up, using each candle as a theme. This year we are using Ann Voskamp's Jesse Tree devotions with our Advent wreath. Once I locate the good paper we'll cut out and hang up the pictures on a small tree. But I didn't want to wait to begin our devotions until I found the right paper. So far, I think we're all enjoying these readings. I'm looking forward to weaving God's story in the Old Testament together with the coming of Christ.
