Seeking the Prince of Peace

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. " Isaiah 9:6

Couldn't decide what to post tonight... decided to share something pretty instead.

Around here we are trying to put a little Christmas into every day, to enjoy the journey instead of constantly preparing for and counting down to a big event. Jesus is the Prince of Peace... what a shame for that to get lost in a lot of unnecessary stress and hurry.

I know I am not alone in these thoughts. You hear it some every year, but slowing down and cutting back seems to be especially prevalent this year. I'm glad. I think Christmas is a perfect example of a time when less really is more.

Is your Christmas going to be "more" this year?

I must say that the treasure hunt Advent calendar that you shared with us is really helping my 8 yo and 3 yo understand the real meaning of Christmas. They talk about Jesus all the time (and even act out the Christmas story with their toys), where in the past it was more about presents and "the big day".
