“Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving others with God’s own love and concern.”
Advent (the four weeks before Christmas) begins a week from this coming Sunday. Those of you that have been following my blog for a long time (welcome new friends Gail and Bente!) know that I volunteer at an Assisted Living Center every week and have a Communion Service for them. At Christmas time we have a little party and everyone receives a gift, which they absolutely love! I do a “letter to St. Nicholas” with them every year during Advent so that I know what they want for Christmas. Their wishes go on the back of a tag which is hung on the “Giving Tree” at church. Someone will take the tag, buy the gift and bring it back, all wrapped and ready for the party. These are the tags I made for this years tree. They are made with the old “Seasonal Lantern” stamp set. The sentiment is from the old “Holly Jolly Greetings” stamp set. New product is the Gorgeous Grape Ribbon.
