Jesse Tree: Day 1
Our first reading: A Shoot from the Stump of Jesse
Today we consider the beginning of this journey through the Nativity Fast, the time of preparation for the birth of our Lord, the Great Light that was long awaited by the Israelites. We look to the promise that God revealed to His people. The scripture reading is Isaiah 11. We contemplate the root of Jesse, the flower that will spring from it, and wonder what/who that might be?
Our ornament is a twig from the yard with a bit of greenery and silk flower hot glued on.
