Sunday Savvy 13

Its the Sunday before Christmas Day, and for us Catholics, The Fourth Sunday of Advent; this means Christmas is just 'around the corner' and we will soon plunge into The 'Merry Christmas' Scene conscious of the expression of God's Love in our life; because we have learnt from the holy Scriptures, that God so loved the world He gave us His only begotten Son that we can be saved

The fourth candle of five candles, a purple candle has been lit

The creche at church has been placed but the baby Jesus is absent because its not yet Christmas day according to our religious empathy of this miraculous event

But The Jesse Tree is laden

And the church decorations are becoming more and more ornate; our Christmas tree is not there yet

Center stage still are the Advent Wreath and Jesse Tree

Sunday smiles to all

I hadn't heard of the Jesse Tree as an Advent decoration before, thanks for the link!

Frieda said...

Lovely. We lit the forth candle today, too, and bought a christmas tree yesterday (but it will be decorated by the end of next week).
I hadn't heard of the Jesse Tree before - that's very interesting.

Oh yes, the Jesse tree - a geneology tree; children put the ornamental symbols on

glad you stopped by Juliet and Frieda

much love...

On a visit to europe, I encountered the first unpadded wooden kneeler I'd come across in years, and I had to relearn the art of kneeling on them without pain.
