Oh Come Let Us Adore Him 1

As a Christ follower, Christmas is a time for me to celebrate the birth of Jesus.   Often with the chaos of the holiday, my focus on Christ gets lost in the presents and decorations.   I thought this year what better way to help me celebrate my Savior than to create a “12 days of CHRISTmas journal†that I can use to take time out of my day to focus on my Savior. I had Louisa from Flipawoo Designs help me to create a printable for this purpose.   Each of the 12 days before Christmas I have selected a passage of Scripture or a video applicable to the birth of Christ to help focus on the real reason for this season.   On each of the 12 pages, there is a spot for journaling and a written prayer all in a cute little keepsake accordion journal.

  1. I love this idea, Beckie, and I have made one for me and the 3 other women in my small group. I just had a bit of a problem in that there were only 11 days worth of printables included in the download. Is there a 12th day that I keep missing? Help!

  2. I also could not find day 12 in the download. I clicked on every hyperlink in the article. There was only one in the download section.
    I wish to make these for my Ladies’ Tea Group for next year but I have spare time now.
    Terrific idea!

  3. What a great idea. Since I celebrate the 12 days . . . . Here is a bit of history of the 12 days. The Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning Christmas Day (25 December). This period is also known as Christmastide and Twelvetide. The Twelfth Night of Christmas is always on the evening of 5 January,
