In addition to the angels I made for the Jesse Tree Ornament Swap, I also mailed in the set of "Jesse" Ornaments (Tree Stump with Shoot) from my local friend Trina, who I convinced to join the swap when she was here tutoring one Tuesday morning. (Her boys are the ones who have been joining us for a few of our feast day celebrations this year!) She made her ornaments with some birch branches from her backyard and I thought they turned out lovely! We are really looking forward to seeing the rest of the ornaments when our box arrives!
And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a flower shall rise up out of his root. Isaiah 11:1
