advent is here!

Advent is here and we are preparing our hearts as we anticipate the arrival of our Savior!

This week in Bright Beginnings, we had a special visit from Mary and Gabriel, the angel.

Our Bible verse for this first week of advent is “For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God’s children.” Romans 8:16

028

And here’s our prayer: “Dear Jesus, thank You for being the perfect gift. Thank You for choosing me to be a part of Your family. Help me to trust You and be willing to do whatever You want me to do. Amen”

Mary trusted God and was willing to do whatever He wanted her to do!
