Christmas Bible readings ~ day 25

On Sunday, our church handed out a daily Bible reading schedule for Advent. We are encouraged and uplifted by the message, God's continuous redemptive plan as written on the pages of the Old and New Testaments.

Another great idea is making a Jesse Tree with your children. Tulip Girl has pictures of some of the trees on her blog and The Reformed Church of America has detailed instructions on their site. There is also a devotional guide for daily family time that accompanies the project.

Hi Karen! I just saw your very kind comment at my blog. I think I've been here before. I was born in the prairies of Canada, so when I see the word "prairie" in someone's blog title, my sense pick up a bit.

I see that you are not just a mother, but a grandmother. I like it when older, wiser ladies come into contact with me. We all need older people in our lives to encourage us.

Hi Kim and welcome to my blog! I hope you visit often and I look forward to some great, wise comments coming from your direction.

Are the prairies of Canada similar to ours, with the prairie grasses and flowers and rich, black soil?

Hi Karen!

Yes, the prairies are very similar in Canada, although I would say we have much more in common with North Dakota than Illinois. I've been through Illinois several times en route to my parents home in Saskatchewan, and I would estimate that you get a bit more rain than what our prairies would get. Plus, you are a little further south.

But yes, rich, black soil is part of our prairies landscape. Where I live, in Ontario, we have thick, reddish-grey clay.
