Christmas Fun, Day 1

This is our "calendar" for the days leading up to Christmas. I had to make it portable this year, so it is very simple!! Each day has the activity written on the back of it. Today's card (#1) says, "Begin our 25 names of God tree."


and THIS is our 25 names of God tree:




Last year, we learned 25 names of Jesus (names and characteristics) during each of our 25 days of Christmas. This year, we are learning 25 names of God. We will talk about the Greek/Aramaic name if I listed it below, and then we will read the Scripture where that name is used. I love how I had MORE than enough names for this list. I actually had to narrow it down to 25. There are so many names of God in the Bible, as well as descriptions and promises we can cling to when we cry out to Him!! or when we worship Him!!

Every magnet is on the tree just for the picture. I took them all off (except the "God is..." tree topper) after I took the photo, and we will add them one by one on the day we learn His name for the day. We will also go back and repeat past days to review, discuss, and praise Him for all He is to us!! I also made 2 presents to put under the tree with 2 of our memory verses to go along with our names of God tree:

Psalm 20:7
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God."

Proverbs 18:10
"The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe."
