Advent ornaments / 25 names for Jesus: This box of twenty five ornaments, each bearing one of the names of Christ (written on w/Sharpies/plain craft store ornaments that were painted/bedazzled), is one of those traditions! We'll hang one on our tree each day of December as one way to learn more about Jesus and celebrate His birth.
It would be inspiring to make a bulb with a name of Jesus pertaining to a story of what He did for your life... then as you hang each bulb, share the testimony of how/why Jesus is that name to you/in your life with family & friends!! (For example: The Great Physician = Jesus healed so-and-so from cancer; Jahovah Jireh = God miraculously provided $ for a missions trip)
I'm a little too late to do this for advent (a lot!), but I think the boys & I will still have fun puting this together & on our tree in prep for Jesus' birhtday:)
