Jesse Tree Free Printable Ornaments/Advent Colouring Pages

Nomadic Poetry Studio: FREE Jesse Tree Advent Ornaments for ColoringNomadic Poetry Studio: FREE Jesse Tree Advent Ornament colouring pagesThese Ornaments are based on the simple Jesse Tree Advent devotional found at this link:

https://www.rca.org/resources/jesse-tree-family-devotions?pid=1628

The devotional is great for children, and they can use these ornaments as colouring pages, and then hang them on the tree. I included text from the associated Scripture passages on each ornament as a way to reinforce ideas from the stories.

I learned so much from tackling these—like what King David’s crown might have looked like, What kinds of whales and large sea creatures might have populated the Mediterranean, when modern prayer shawls came into use, and the tools of a carpenter of Jesus’ day. Good stuff.

She Walks in Beauty

By Lord Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night
   Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
   Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
   Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
   Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
   Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
   How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
   So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
   But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
   A heart whose love is innocent!
