Today I picked out my tree. It is, of course, a balasam....since I think they smell the best. This one needs a little space in the branches (not too thick) so the ornaments can hang nicely! (The nice thing about a virtual tree, is I can pick out whatever ornaments I want!) I'm excited to begin! Below are this week's lessons, Tuesday thru Friday.
Day One - Creation
Text: Genesis 1
"In the beginning, God created the heaves and the earth." Genesis 1:1
Symbol for our tree: Lights!
To think about:
In the beginning, God made everything. It all started out dark, but with a word, God said, Let there be light, and there was LIGHT! God's first week of creation was beautiful! As we start this Christmas season, you will see all sorts of beautiful lights decorting the town and houses. When you see the pretty lights, stop and think about the beginning of time. Who was there? (God was) Who is with us nowadays? (God still is) And in the end, when the world is destroyed, who will be there? (God still will) God was, and is, and is to come. He is ALWAYS. The lights can remind us of this.
