Today we begin to add symbols to our Jesse tree - or if not to literally do so, then maybe to ponder the themes.
The first theme is creation, and an invitation to identify, and thank God for, 'our favourite things' - which may, or may not, include raindrops on roses or warm woolen mittens!
Here are a few of mine (not necessarily in any kind of order)
The River Clyde
Tea leaves (from which to make tea)
Crunchy autumn leaves
Crunchy salad leaves
The hour just before dawn
What would you add?
Thank you, God, for this wonderful world of which I am just a tiny part. Help me not only to delight in it, but also to treasure and care for it.
