Adorning the Evergreen {Our Advent Tradition}


Friends, I have the honor of joining the team of writers over at 5 Minutes for Faith this season as we share Christmas Traditions from our home, to yours!

Won’t you stop by as I share what adorning our tree means to me?

Here’s a sneak peek:

We drag out the buried box. The one wrapped in duct tape from years past. I remember joy bursting as my husband and I scraped enough money to buy this tree as newlyweds.

Now, it seems old. Skimpy. Worn thin and I scold myself quietly for not yet buying another. But my son, the four year-old bouncing out of sheer anticipation, sees the promise of beauty and I force myself to emulate his excitement…

Please stop by and see how God transforms this moment for me and discover our tradition during advent relating to our Christmas tree. I’d love to see you there. Simply click on the button below!

How about you, friend? Do you have any Christmas traditions that point you to Him? I’d love to hear.

Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Simply striving,

  1. I also read this over on the other site before receiving this one, and really liked it….a lot! And, thought…this must be Nikki! Sure enough! Your distinctive voice shines through.

  2. Something we did MANY years ago – when our kids got what we called the “Christmas Gimmes” we told them they could only ask for 3 gifts. That was it — THREE.

    The reason? If three gifts were enough for Baby Jesus, it’s enough for you. And we still have that rule in place!

I can't wait to hear from you...
