Make Ready with an Advent countdown or wreath

Counting the days. Come, Lord Jesus. #advent2016 #ilovemyshepherd #graftedheart

[Let us look] to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

Christmas countdown calendars are fun and Advent Wreaths bring a special feeling to the dinner table (or wherever you keep yours). The best part? They point us where we need to be looking. They help us Make Ready, reminding us that we are counting down to something. We aren’t just in the messy middle of the holiday season.  They point us to Jesus and He’s the One we can always, always “count” on.
