Truth in the Tinsel Day 2
My idea of starting in advance didn't really work out (laziness) so I got on track with the normal schedule today. It being December 2nd - we did Day 2 which was Kingdom. The magnets on the fridge give clues and the clue for day 2 is "crown" so Andrew was beyond overjoyed that we were going to be making paper crowns and kept waiting for the day 2 craft to come. But surprise! The day 2 craft is making a crown ornament not a crown for your head. Ohhhh. But lest you think I am a mean mommy, we made both. :)
The passage again today was Isaiah 9:2-7 with the focus being on verses 6-7
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace, there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing it and upholding it with justice and righteousnesss
from that time on and forever.
In our short devotion, we talked about how God spoke to the prophet Isaiah hundreds of years before Jesus was even born and how it describes Him as being the King who will rule forever. Jesus didn't come to just to be a baby. He came to be rule and reign in our lives forever.
Here is a picture of Josh painting his crown. That's about all he painted before he gave up. What can I say? He's 3. We do most of the crafts when he is in bed.
And here are Peter and Andrew with the completed crown ornaments and their jeweled crowns for their heads. My prayer for all my children tonight is that they will grow up and worship Christ as their King in their lives.
