Advent Day 8

Today was Mia's turn to open the Advent box and so tonight we are planning to sit down together and decorate our otherwise bare windows and make snowflakes as a family. It should be interesting, knowing our family. Yesterday we sat down as a family and watched Bless Your Beautiful Hide from the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers movie in Italian. The children got a real kick out of it and Scott and I are linguistic nerds so we loved it. The verse of the day is:

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ WAS as follows: AfterHis mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make he a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he though about these things, behold, and angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will brign forth a son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people form their sins." ~Matther 1:18-21

And I am so thankful that the angel was sent and Joseph did not put her away secretly.
