Redeeming the Season

I wanted to take a minute and show you a project from a friend of mine, Jodi from the Gresham Barn Sale. She calls this the "Jesus Tree", and it's a great way to "Redeem the Season" for you and your kids. I've copied most of this post from her blog and you can read more about it over there.
What is a "Jesus tree" you ask? Well it's a tree whos only ornaments are tags with various names for Jesus from the Scriptures. Attached to each tag is an ornament to represent that name. "Above you see a Jesus Tree decked with new tags and fun suggestions for ornaments that represent the names of Jesus. People told us all the neat things they did with them, some hung them on the tree in their sunday school rooms, class rooms, used them as an advent with their children, divided up the tags and had each family member come up with an ornament...the possiblities are endless."
"These are some pictures of items we came up with to represent some names of Jesus! He is our Ruler over All!"

"Light of the world!"

"Our precious Redeemer!"

Here are some of the tags close up!

"This is a great way to "redeem" the season of Jesus birth and to learn the names of Jesus with scripture reference." The tags are available for purchase on her site, in packs of 30 or 60 (did you know there were that many names for our Savior?) and even a starter pack with ornaments.

The Jesus Tree was the inspiration for my Symbols of Faith Necklaces, seen below. Now available in two-tone versions as well.

Fabulous and very clever idea. It does remind one of what the season is really about.
