I’m here to talk about a Christmas idea.
Yes, we’re just barely to Halloween, but every year about this time I start to wonder what we can do to make this Christmas season less hectic, less rushed, and most importantly, more Christ-focused.
Last week we received a gift in the mail and it’s something I want to share because I think it’s a great idea to help with the Christ-focused part of Christmas, especially for young families. And hey, when you’re truly Christ-focused, the chaotic, hectic stuff tends to take a back seat to what is really most important.
Here’s the deal:
It’s kind of a twist on the “Elf on the Shelf” but rather than reporting back to Santa like the elf does, the little lamb serves as a reminder of the story of Christ’s birth. (And it’s soft and cuddly too 🙂
It comes with a little book that tells the story from Bethlehem from this little lamb’s point of view:
(and it includes scripture verses to go with the story…I’m always looking for a good scripture guide to lead up to the holidays…maybe this will be good for us to use for family devotional)
And then gives ideas about how to remember the Savior around Christmas-time.
Just a little idea to get us in gear as we slide into the holiday season.
for more information…it looks like it would be a pretty fun site for kids with advent calendar ideas, and you can “adopt a lamb.” Or you can purchase HERE
Enjoy, and I’d love to hear other ideas people have to gear up for a Christ-centered Christmas!
