Advent ~ Day 2

Today's reading was from Isaiah 9:2-7:

2 The people who walk in darkness
Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them.
You shall multiply the nation,
You shall increase their gladness;
They will be glad in Your presence
As with the gladness of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders,
The rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian.
For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult,
And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace,
On the throne of David and over his kingdom,
To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness
From then on and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

Our oldest read tonight, good to hear speaking more.  It's been a hard thing for him to do, so we encourage where ever possible. 

We decided to buy candy this year, that we actually enjoy, instead of the generic, no name advent calendars you can pick up cheap almost anywhere.  For now, we're working through Hershey's Dark Kisses and Caramel Kisses.

Today's treasures included a fireplace and a cruiser!  Boys are enjoying this and it has been hard to wait.  So here they are:

Merry Christmas and enjoy this season of Advent!
