First! A quick note for anybody with small kids that needs to hear this: combining the Jesse Tree devotional with the Advent calendar with its chocolate goodies seems to be a Big Hit with my kids. So, we’ll do the scripture reading and then all the kids get chocolate.
So, let’s just say our official Advent calendar looks a little bit like this now:
Also, I shipped some books today (mwhahaha, yes, here’s an obligatory link to my shop where I am personally selling my books for Advent!) and guess what? Apparently, the post office nearby actually gives lollipops to small children. And so, thank you for getting books. 🙂 And, my kids appreciate it as well!

Now! I read a very much abbreviated version to my kids, since I have very squirmy kids, ages five and under, who do not have the greatest attention span… to put it mildly.
But, I have about five million religious artworks of Creation in my stash. And so let’s illustrate this scripture, shall we? 🙂
…and that’s all for the day!
Tune in tomorrow to see what happens next… though, fair warning! Satan might appear tomorrow… 😮
