A Time of Preparation...

Happy Advent SPCP Families,

              WOW!  I can’t believe it is December already.  When I look back over the year I just feel so blessed.  I started the year not sure the Lord was leading me and little did I know he had an amazing plan all ready for me.  Joining the St. Paul family has been one of the most blessed times in my life.  I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and can’t wait to see what more fun is in store. 

As you prepare your homes for Christmas let us stop and remember that Advent is a time of preparation.  It is a time for us to be patient and remember that journey that Mary and Joseph took on a donkey through the desert.  There are so many distractions that could take us away from the real meaning of the season but let’s make this a deliberate Advent and purposefully set aside time to spend with your children and families discussing Advent, reading stories, and preparing your hearts.  Another fantastic way of helping children to prepare their hearts is having them do Random Acts of Kindness towards your family, neighbors, and others in the community.  See the list below.  Take a snapshot of your children doing this and email it to me, I will post on our Facebook page for everyone to see just how kind we are at SPCP! 

May the Spirit of the Season Bring You Much Joy,

Abbie Johnson
