Advent's Here!

Today's the first day of Advent!  We're going to try to post more dolly photos on the blog this month.   Sort of like an Advent calendar, but we can't promise a new post for every day - the month is just sooo busy, and daylight is scace at this time of year!

 Do you know what Advent is?

Advent is about HOPE.  Not just wishful thinking, like "Gee, I hope that my Powerball ticket is the winning ticket."  The kind of hope we're talking about is looking forward to something we know will come to pass.  Jesus came to Bethlehem, Jesus comes into our hearts, and Jesus will come again.

Advent is also about LOVE, JOY and PEACE.

Here's a 2 minute video that explains Advent.  We actually saw this at church today, at the end of our Pastor's sermon.  We hope you like it!

We don't usually "do" music (or videos for that matter) on our blog, but this is from The Nutcracker - so if you like that, turn up your volume a little, okay?
