Speaking of memories, a few Christmas ago I posted about Christmas memories and traditions in which I told you about a new tradition we started. We begin each December 1st hanging an ornament that represents a scripture that points to the birth of Jesus Christ on our Jesse Tree. Actually, its a pine garland draped over a doorway in the main walkway of our home. Each evening for 25 days we take out an ornament and read a corresponding Bible passage and follow the journey that leads to Bethlehem.
|Day 1 - the Earth|
Day 1: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)
