Jesse Tree - Day 12 - Root of Jesse

Today we find out why what we are doing is called a Jesse Tree. The first reading was Isaiah 11:1-5,10. The second reading is from Acts (and I just realized I read tomorrow's second reading today, instead of todays. Oops)Anyway, the one I was supposed to read was Acts 13:16, 22-23.

But we did hear the words of the prophet about a root from the stump of Jesse. And since we learned the other day that Jesus was descended from Jesse, we can see how He is the fulfillment of that prophecy.

And we're up to day 12 on the Jesse tree and still doing it (Even if I did read the wrong second reading today). We might actually make it all the way through. It helped that we made the ornaments ahead of time!
