We are not participating in the Advent Conspiracy, however, I do like the video and the idea of changing our "Christmas spending habits" a bit.
I am a gift giver. I love buying things for people (and myself). Maybe it's just that I love shopping. Nevertheless, I want the most important thing that we communicate as a family to be Christ and his saving grace.
Who cares if the cousin I drew loves her new sweater......she is lost....she needs a lot more than a sweater. Oh, that my focus would shift from giving earthly, temporal gifts to sharing the best gift of all, Jesus Christ! So I'm looking for creative ways to do that in our gift giving this year.
