December 15 * Holly

Jesus Suffered for Me

That is what you were called to do. Christ suffered
for you. He gave you an example to follow. So
you should do as he did.
1 Peter 2:21

I hope your Christmas preparations are going well. Remember to focus on what is truly important, not just urgent. As Christmas gets closer, schedules get fuller and deadlines rush at us, it's harder to take time to slow down or to keep focused on Jesus. I encourage you to take a look at the family calendar and schedule in quiet time.

Look at the words to The Holly and The Ivy, talk about them. 

This craft is adorable and simple. It would make great cards or tags. Fingerprint Holly You can color fingers with markers or use ink pads (like for rubber stamps) if you don't have paint.

Make Holly Wreath Cookies - if you're like me this would mean a trip to the store, so maybe another day?

Being called to suffer, or at least be willing to is a hard concept for children. It's a hard concept for me. Let them ask questions about suffering, of any kind, even if your answer has to be "I don't really know." Then pray for those you know who are suffering and for answers to their questions.
