FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Hi! I’m Melina, homeschooling mother of 11 and Grandmelina to 2!
Today our family will light our first Advent candle – a purple one. This candle signifies hope.
As it says in Romans 15:12-13
12 And again, Isaiah says,
“The Root of Jesse will spring up,
one who will arise to rule over the nations;
in him the Gentiles will hope.”[a]
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Every year we light our Advent candles. Each night at supper we will light the candle while we sing our Advent song. Then we blow them out so the candles last the whole season. You can listen to the first verse here.
