Advent Project, Final Week

Are you ready? I think I am... finally. I think all the gifts are bought, and wrapped. All I need to do now is get to the grocery store, and tie up a few loose ends. This time next week, it will all be over.
As you can see our "Names of Jesus" advent calendar is coming right along. I'm looking forward to sharing this last week with you. I've had so much fun with this project, and I've made a few changes along the way, like finally adding numbers to my board.
For my tags, I've added the actual verses instead of just the references, so that I'll be able to review the verse as I think about it's meaning. Also I've discarded a few that I had planned to use like "rose of sharon" turns out this is not a "name of Jesus" but is often mistaken as such. I decided to remove it even though I love having the Rose as a token, because of it's ambiguity.

I've also discovered that some verses work in the NIV that might not work in the KJV so check both translations.

And to my dismay, I've discovered that I had the wrong scripture references on more than one tag, so I've been checking those as well. You can view a complete list of the "names of God" or "names of Jesus" here. Be sure to check the references before deciding to use one. Some of them are up to interpretation. And if you want to get pre-printed tags, my friend Jodi offers them here. I get nothing from the sale of the tags, I'm just doing this for the fun of it, and it has been fun, and enlightening.

Hope you are following along, and having fun too.
Happy Christmas Week!!!!!! Are you ready?

I really like your Advent calendar, Margo. I have meant to get some tags the last two years and I've let the time get away from me. I had to miss the sales this fall, too. I had other things going on. So... maybe next year, I'll get it in gear and do it! Lunch - after New Years. Lets do it.
