I've been taking an unintentional hiatus. Amidst the craziness of life, blogging has been put on the back burner for me. This stage of life-having an almost four year old and a four month old has been harder than I thought it would be...mostly because this precious guy doesn't like to sleep at.all.
But, I am hoping to post soon because it gives me life, so I'll see ya'll soon!
“This oath you made us swear will not be binding on us unless, when we enter the land, you have tied this scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down..."
Because the Lord is a God of mercy and redemption, Rahab, a prostitute, is included in Jesus' lineage. For this ornament, I tied a simple red cord to the verse piece to represent the red cord Rahab tied in her window as an act of faith.
Day 12- Ruth and Boaz
"Your people will be my people and your God my God."
I got the idea for this ornament from this blog. It's just two pieces of dried wheat died together on a wooden heart. The verse is on the back.
Day 13- King David
"But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
I used jewelry charms to make this ornament-a crown for David's kinghood and a horn for the horn of oil with which Samuel anointed David.
Day 14 - Isaiah's Prophecy
"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."
I had some cute miniature doilies I found at the Dollar Spot at Michael's. The yellow one reminded me of the sun, so I decided to use it for the light ornament.
Day 15- Elijah
"Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”
1 Kings 18:21
This is one of my more elaborate ornaments. I wanted to make the altar on which Elijah proved God is God and Baal was fake. I used two wood dowels, painted brown, and tied them together. I glued them on a wood disk. I made the fire with felt and the stones were beads I had on hand.
