names of the savior hand lettered advent calendar
Every year, the Christmas season seems to get busier. As much as I want to slow down and savor everything, the days fly by in a whirl of parties, events, photos, baking, shipping, and more. It is so easy to forget the real reason for the season.
In 2019, I created the names of the savior advent calendar. 24 cards. On one side there is my painting "far, far away on Judea's plain", on the other handwritten in silver ink, a name associated with Jesus Christ and its scriptural reference. For 24 days, my daughter got up in the morning and asked to play the "Jesus Game," as she coined it. She and I would gather with her grandparents before we went our respective ways. My daughter would choose a card from the stack, we would read the name and then the scripture that went with it. For 24 days, we learned more deeply of Christ and felt the calming influence that five minutes of concerted study of Him could render on our daily lives. 24 days that shaped our lives immeasurably.
In 2021, my own father and I teamed up to create beautiful cedar wood stands for the advents. A master craftsman in his own right, he helped bring my dream of heirloom quality materials to life. He used his skillset to create simple stands that smell as good as they are durable. This is truly an heirloom set for years of traditions.
