Welcome to advent! We love this season at our house...warm blankets, a crackling fire in the fireplace, Christmas lights, and most importantly the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus! There is nothing like it. Even now, as I'm sitting here typing I am listening to my favorite Christmas Pandora station and singing along to Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
Each day during this advent season I am going to post that day's Jesse Tree Devotion and a picture of a the symbol that we use. If you are wondering "Just what is a Jesse Tree" check out my post here.
Symbol: The Earth
Scripture: Genesis 1:1-2 (The Message)
Topic of Devotion: Creation
1-2First this: God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.
God created everthing around us. Isn't it so amazing to look around and noticed all the tiny details that God perfected just for us to enjoy? Thank God today for taking the time to make us smile, and ask Him to give us the knowledge to take care of this great big planet that we call home!
