Remember Christ - Christmas Advent

If anyone has been following my blog for a while, they know I'm slightly obsessed with Christmas Advents.  I have a ton of posts with different advent ideas.  I love them.
But, I've also had a mission in posting and searching for all these advents.  I once received a Christmas advent which encouraged people to come to know their Savior through reading about Him in scripture.  Each day focused on a different virtue He posessed.  Somehow, I misplaced that advent and have been searching for it ever since.
Today, my search is finally over.  Of all the Christmas advents, I think this one is most meaningful and important.  Read a scripture every day and Come to know Christ better.  In the future, I might change the order of these scriptures around a bit, but I am so happy to have found this at {Tip Junkie}!  What I'd really love to do is have a tree ornament to go with each virtue.  Willowtree has a lot that would work.  I've also included links to some ideas.
