In the first package for our Advent calendar I had put some glow in the dark stars.
As we put them on the wall, we talked about Genesis 1:1 and Colossians 1:15-17.
The same baby who we will be reading about over Christmas is the one who made all things. The big, clever God who put stars and planets into space was born as a baby in his own world.
It is precious to have two children start to put the astounding pieces of the Incarnation together.
Our glowing stars and planets are on the wall behind the Christmas tree, to remind us.
