My little lady and I have started a new tradition for this season of Advent and we’re loving it so much that I want to share some of it with you. In a world saturated with deals of the day and must-have gifts, this small tradition all about unwrapping the truest, greatest gift that never goes off trend – God’s love.
Unwrapping the Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp is not only a beautiful book, it tells the story of Jesus and God’s love in an age-appropriate way that children can understand. But this is no ordinary children’s story. Her eloquent way of stringing words touches the heart and captivates even the most avid reader.
I’m sharing things in this space that speak to me in the hopes that maybe you’ll find something that reaches you, too. The graphics below are inspired by Ann Voskamp’s book and the telling of a fallen world, a fallen family tree if you will, and a Savior….
“Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot.” -Isaiah 11:1
It’s been so long since I’ve posted here in this place. There are reasons more complex than I can put into words, but the short of it is this – I was not sure that I had something to give you worth sharing. Life is just so complicated.
Like you, I’ve endured a very long presidential campaign season. Perhaps you’re like me and feel like there is an abundance of words being tossed around these days. Everyone has an opinion (including me). Everyone wants to be heard (including me). There is so much talking and not enough listening.
I’ve prayed and pondered about how I can play a part in the healing. “Do what you know.” That is what my heart keeps screaming. And what I know is encouragement and love and acceptance. I’ve also found a niche with words and social media connections. What you’ll find here in this place is my way of mixing all of those things.
The graphics you find here are free and my way of putting positive, encouraging messages back into our everyday conversations and interactions. Please download them, print them, post them, and share them as you feel led. xoxo
