Picture Advent, Dec. 24, “Child”

by Barbara

Luke 1:31-38. I never was blessed to give birth to a child, but I was blessed with 3 amazing step-sons and this beautiful child, my grandson! Celebrating Christmas, the birth of Christ, through his eyes is priceless. #pictureadvent #child

Picture Advent. Dec. 23 “Promise”

by Barbara

Luke 1:26-30. I love this Madonna that Karim brought back from Africa. An angel made an unbelievable promise to Mary, that she would give birth to the Savior of the world. It was a promise of all moms, filled with joy and tears and laughter and pain all mixed up in a container called life. […]

Picture Advent, Dec. 16, “Name”

John 1:19-22. John the Baptist was asked who he was in our passage. Naming is important. I was born on Dec 31 and was brought home in this stocking. My parents gave me my name and set out my identity. But ultimately, my name is Daughter of God! #pictureadvent #name
