OK, so last night was our first night opening a box in the Advent Calendar. My daughter read the first passage: Dec 1: Genesis 3:15, And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
She looks at me and asks, "What does that have to do with Christmas?" I just shook my head. "Why as I spending all this money to send you to a parochial school when you don't even know that is the first prophesy of the Savior????" Silence. "Ohhhhhh, yeah". I think she gets it now. Hopefully tonight's passage will go a little better: Dec 2: Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
We all enjoyed our dark chocolate though!
