Making Room for Jesus in Your Hearts and Home
Children can prepare their hearts for the baby Jesus by doing little acts of love for him. To encourage this practice and help them remember, it is helpful to have something concrete for them to see and do. I find that preparing the manger bed with straw is a lovely practice that my kids enjoy. We leave straw close by, so the kids can ad a piece when they remember to do an act of love for Jesus. This can be as simple as a small prayer. "Jesus prepare my heart so I can welcome you on Christmas Day."
