Joy to the world, the Lord is come

Let earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

I love 'Joy To The World'.

As far as hymns go, there truly is no other that truly reflects the joy of Christmas quite like this one. I mean, it IS right there in the title isn't it?

But today, we're going to take a look at that one line, "Let every heart prepare Him room".

We've heard this lyric time and time again, but when was the last time we really stopped to consider exactly what those words meant? This simple line is truly what the advent season truly is all about... preparing our hearts for Jesus during this holiday season. Is there any greater gift we could give our children?


Today, we're going to look at a fabulous family resource that can help us do just that, 'Prepare Him Room: Celebrating the Birth of Jesus Family Devotional':

If you haven't though, it's certainly one worth checking out. This is the perfect guide to celebrating advent with your family. It is broken into 4 sections, one for each week of advent. Within these sections, it is broken into 3 parts that you can do throughout the week with your family.

Each section ends with one chapter of a Christmas story that continues on throughout the weeks leading up to the holiday. These aren't reading that will take an excessive amount of time... or money.
