It is hard to believe that December is already upon us. Our family just got back from a trip to Arizona for my Aunt’s funeral, where it was 80° and sunny. We were in flip-flops and shorts swimming in the pool and then coming home to Montana with cooling temperatures and the beginning of the Christmas season was quite a change!
I love the cool days spent baking and curating gifts for those we love, and the cozy nights by the fire with cocoa and Christmas stories. This truly is the season of anticipation, as the word advent=waiting conjures. Getting to spend a whole month (or more) preparing to bless and shower the ones we love with gifts and time and thoughtfulness is such a unique part of the year. Waiting for the coming of the Messiah we do no longer, but we await his final return in anticipation and as we labor for His kingdom here. This advent season being a small glimpse of the excitement we ought to feel as we work and wait.
Today I have some free prints for you to download and use and share as you like! A little gift from me to you to kick off the season!
And happy December!
