My project for the next week is to make sure we have something planned to do as a family for advent. I have been reading what other people do/have done and feel slightly overwhelmed at the prospect.
My prayer is that I can excite everyone about the gift that God gave us - Jesus. It's so easy for kids to get caught up in all the commercialism of Christmas. I have really noticed how parents can promote this by making gifts and desires such a focus. We live in an area of Sydney with lower resources but parents go all out to buy heaps at Christmas. Especially putting heaps of money into Chrisco (a company that I really dislike for the way they rip poorer people off!!).
