Advent... Day 19

Brrrrr. 14F and probably dropping. I love having the boys "in" for the evening, candles lit, and stories to read!

Gunnar has such a tender spirit that the book he chose, "Room for a Little One", though written for littler kids, still pleased him. The animals, beginning with Kind Ox, welcome each other and the baby Jesus into the stable.

Tonight's devotion sure was timely. The topic was "patience", something my boys possess only in minute quantities and apparently don't want to waste by using. Ever.

Simeon waited all his life to see the promised Messiah. We get frustrated waiting 2 minutes and 45 seconds for the microwave to pop our popcorn.

*sigh*

We're working on it :0)
