Advent Begins November 28

 17.11.10

My husband and I decided to start celebrating the Advent few years ago. It was certainly not an easy decision; we really wanted to do it, but living in a Catholic country where these kind of traditions have always been associated by Evangelicals with paganism and idolatry was not easy.  We prayed, we marked the calendar, and our family was blessed indeed!

Noël Piper says about Advent,

"For four weeks, it’s as if we’re re-enacting, remembering the thousands of years God’s people were anticipating and longing for the coming of God’s salvation, for Jesus. That’s what advent means—coming. Even God’s men who foretold the grace that was to come didn’t know “what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating." They were waiting, but they didn’t know what God’s salvation would look like." (source) 

Today, as the time approaches I want to suggest to you several resources that have been a blessing in our home as we wait, as we sit around the Family Table and read about His glorious coming.




The Innkeeper, by John Piper


















we have not read this, maybe this year we will use it...




Another book I found that looks great is this, The Christ of Christmas; have you read it?











Buy here.






Update:
I am sorry friends! I forgot to include this CD earlier. (It is one of my favorites!)

Buy it here (it is on sale right now!)




More Christmas music can be found here.


Do you have any other books, sermons, or music you would like to suggest us for this season? 

We would love to hear about them!

 Today I am grateful because we can treasure God in our traditions!














Remember that we will be celebrating the Incarnation of our Lord at Daily On My Way to Heaven,  you are invited to join us! Link to your blog post every Wednesday on December; tell us how do you keep a Jesus centered Christmas.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
