Advent Day 2

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Happy Advent Season, My Lovelies!  This year on my Advent Calendar I want to share Christmas traditions from around the world along with a daily scripture reading.

In France, children place their shoes by the hearth on Christmas Eve so Père Noël can leave candy inside them.  If I were a kid in france, I'd wear boots at Christmas!

Luke 1:46-55

Mary’s Song

46 And Mary said:
     “My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
     of the humble state of his servant.
     From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
     holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
     from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
     he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
     but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
     but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
     remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
     just as he promised our ancestors.”

Until next time...
