Little Wonder Days did this adorable bracelet for her kids for Christmas, and I loved the idea and knew I had to use it for my Sunday School class. She used beads she had on hand, but since I only had various shades of red and clear beads I had to go out and buy mine, so it’s slightly different than hers.
White- for the angel who came to Zechariah and told him his wife would have a baby.
Blue- for Mary who believed what the angel told her and trusted God.
Brown- for Joseph who was going to divorce Mary, but stopped when an angel told him to trust Mary.
Grey- for the donkey Mary rode to Bethlehem because of the Roman decree.
Gold bell- for Jesus, the bell rings to remind us to tell everyone of the Good News, and it’s gold because Jesus will wear a gold crown.
Star- for the star that appeared above Jesus.
White- for the angel that appeared to the shepherds to tell them of Jesus’ birth.
Green- for the shepherds who ran to see the newborn babe.
Light purple- for the magi who traveled so far to see the baby Jesus.
Yellow, purple, and red- for the gifts the magi brought. Gifts fit for a king.
Merry Christmas to all of you, I’ve no guarantee I’ll be posting again until after Christmas, I have a wonderful Merry Christmas post I’d like to write, but I don’t guarantee it.
So, just in case:
Merry Christmas to all!
