Advent - Day 4 - Names

I realize some of you may follow this blog for the giveaway, that some of you may not be interested in any advent ideas, that some of you don't do religious things with your family, some of you follow because you want the ideas for your family, others read to keep up with our family, and I'm sure there are other reasons.  Whatever the reason, I appreciate you taking the time to read a little glimpse into our life.

Today I am going to share a website with you that would be good for anyone to use if you want to represent a group of words/descriptions.  It's called  Click {here} to check it out.  I think it is a fun site with lots of opportunity for neat ideas.

I used to get ready for today's advent activity.  I logged on and typed in all the words that describes each of my boys.  Then I printed each description.  The boys each got their own WORDLE print out full of words that Lou & I felt described them.  We talked about different words that could be used to describe God.  And how many of those words are actually names for God -- Names like: Jesus, Light of the World, Bread of Life, Immanuel, Saviour.  We got out a wreath and added one star to it with the name "God" on it.  Throughout advent, we will add more stars to the wreath.  Each star will have a different name for God on it.

Here is an example of what looks like when you're done:

Changing the subject, I am just amazed at how far technology has come.  I am typing this blog post connected to WiFi in my husband's car.  Yes, his CAR has WiFi.  How amazing is this technology?  Blows me away!
