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.

Then pealed the bells

then pealed the bells watermark

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
