How many of you put up and Advent wreath and do you make it all the way through lighting the candles and saying the prayers. We usually start off pretty good but get a little lazy toward the end.
How many have a Jesse Tree? Do you keep up with the added things to put on it all the way through and read the daily things that go with. Again we start off pretty good but fall away about half way through.
Now growing up we had BOTH in our home. I do well remember the Jesse Tree cause it was a real tree branch (large) and in a bucket and my Mom made all the ornaments.
It took me MANY years to make the one I finally like. It’s a sheet of plywood cut in half the long way. Painted grey background with a bought “tree” pattern that I stapled to it. At the various points I screwed in coffee cup hooks and that’s what I hang the little laminated discs with the pictures and Bible verses on them. I have the verses written on separate sheets.
