…are starting to come more clearly into focus. We will put up the tree as usual, but we will only decorate it with lights. Ann’s Jesse Tree ornaments will be put up one by one as we work throught the devotional. Each of the children will be given a sum of money to pick out a present for Jesus. These, too, will end up on the tree in some way. Our regular ornaments will be taken out of the box, one by one as it becomes evident that we are preparing our hearts for the Savior. John has a couple of service projects in mind for him and the boys. We will go to my mom’s on Christmas Eve as usual, but we will stay home for once on Christmas Day and have a quiet, reflective Christmas. I am excited to see where the Master is leading us this year.
