Our Jesse Tree

This is going to be a very short post but I had to share this photo. This is OUR Jesse Tree. It kind of reminds me of a Charlie Brown type tree but I have a feeling that 4 weeks from now I am going to shed a tear when I have to take it all down.

I do apologize for the quality of the photo. The only working camera we have is our cell phones. So, once again I am NOT letting my perfection get in my way. This is the photo for now….hope you can see the hope I feel in these branches.

Love and blessings to you!

Advent……and a Jesse Tree

Thanksgiving has passed and Advent is almost upon us. I have never really known what that word Advent means but I intend to find out this year. A new tradition of ours – A Jesse Tree Advent Devotional. We have found the branches to create our tree from a neighbors clippings waiting to be tossed out with the trash. I found a wide mouthed but skinny necked vase, with a red bow to use as the planter. Leftover white batting will fill the empty space in the vase and tomorrow we begin to learn of Advent and Jesse and His family tree.

I am so excited to take the kids on this journey and learn with them along the way. I have the first 10 days or so printed out and I will pray over them and for them. May God lead me on the way to find the true understanding of Advent.

And so I continue to count my gifts…..1000 Gifts
#71 A neighbors cutting can be our branches
#72 a new life for a long forgotten vase
#73 The red ribbon tied and ready to go
#74 White batting to fill the empty space and helping me give up on perfect
#75 THIS project to getting stopped by my perfectionism

Blessing and love to you! Thank for you stopping by!
