This advent study has become a tradition for us. The past three years, all three kids have done this study. With just one home these days, I'll do it with the one. This will be the fourth year that I will print it out in its entirety and Ellen and I will sit together each morning and study advent... the coming of Emmanuel.
We will read about the prophecy foretold for the coming Messiah. We will study about the angels and the shepherds, Mary and Joseph. We will read and reread. And, we will color amazing coloring pages.
You can find it for yourself at author Eleanor Zweigle's website. It's a big download that is free of charge.
On this first Sunday of Advent...
O come O come Emmanuel
and ransom captive Israel
that mourns in lowly exile here
until the Son of God appear
rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel!
