Advent Activity: Celebrate Jesus’ Birthday!
Since we were leaving early morning on Christmas Day, we celebrated as our immediate family the night before. We opened a couple presents, had another green and red meal (mostly because we had to eat our remaining fruit and veggies before our trip), and went to our Christmas Eve service. Our friends joined us there and we said goodbyes to them…until next time…in Switzerland, hopefully! =)
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.” (Isaiah 9:6-7a)
“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” (Galatians 4:4-5)
