This is the first night your secret angel begins her mission! Remember, she is only a doll until she gets an earthly name. Her magic begins after the scroll is written and a special name is chosen. Once she knows your child is asleep, she returns to the clouds and sings your child’s praises with all her angel friends! They rejoice every time a child hears the Good News! She flies back early every morning until Christmas Eve and hides in a secret spot before anyone wakes up!
Where might she hide? Oh, where could she be?
Maybe in a drawer? Or underneath the tree?
It is our sincere hope that your secret angel will spark a sense of wonder and excitement in your child’s heart for Jesus. We as parents know that true faith only comes as our children grow to understand Him. But until then, we have the incredible responsibility of planting the early seeds of the Gospel message. Romans 10:17 says it much better than we can, “…faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”
Lesson 1: Talk to your child about why their angel was sent to them: To teach them about the One and Only true gift of Christmas, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
