This year our traditional advent calendar started to fall apart, so until I get a sewing machine to fix it, we had to come up with a back up plan. Enter our Giving tree. Here we are hanging ornaments of pictures that represent the stories throughout scripture that point to the promises of the one to come...Emmanuel, God with us. We also will be hanging ornaments on which we write the gifts we have been given by God that we are thankful for. We have been abundantly blessed and we want to give praise to Jesus this season for all that He has done in us, for us, through us.
