Counting our Blessings
In preparation for the birth of Jesus, these 2013 Advent devotions invite readers to journey back in time and meet Jesus’ family. Based on Jesus’ genealogy in the Gospel of Matthew, these short reflections reveal how the people and events in life are God’s poem of blessing. The devotional features Scripture readings, prayers, and anecdotes and meditations for each day of the Advent season. Written by David Peterson with illustrations by Staci Sarkowski.
