According to Us

One Husband, One Wife, Five Children and Everything in Between

Tag Archives: Illustrated advent

This week of Jesse Tree has primarily been in reading about some of the prophesies of Jesus. Knowing how he has fulfilled them and will one day bring it all to completion has been exactly where my heart has needed to land all week. I remember saying to myself on Tuesday, the 15th just before going to bed “I need the Prince of Peace today.” It was a day that was triple booked. I had crawled into bed that morning near 1 AM after finishing up cookies for an exchange, rounded up kids for school, and as I was leaving for the day, received a call that made me cancel the day to check on my MIL. Needless to say I spent the rest of the day at the hospital with her. When they got her into ICU I finished the day out with running kids, a band concert, more running, last-minute shopping, attended a party briefly that was supposed to be at my house that night (thankfully my dear friend had it at her house instead), forgot my wallet, scrambled to trace my steps to locate it, and more running around. When the day was done, so was I.

Immanuel: God with us. It was super crucial for me this week to find the time to reflect on what He promises for those who trust in him. I cannot even imagine doing life without the His presence.

Day 13: Prophecy of  the Root of Jesse: Day 13 and 14 both fall within the same passage, so their illustrations were a kind of 2-fer.

Day 14: Prophesy of the Lion and the Lamb

Day 15: Prophecy of the Prince of Peace: This had to be a simple design for me!

Day 16: Prophecy of the Good Shepherd: I was challenged in this illustration because art is not really a strong thing for me, but I wanted a more realistic drawing of the Shepherd watching over his flock. It was inspired by a painting I saw on Pinterest.

Day 17: Prophecy of the Suffering Servant: Another Pinterest inspired painting

Day 18: Promise of the New Covenant

Day 19: Prophecy of the town of Bethlehem: This illustration I had done some months ago while reading through Micah. It is also inspired from a painting I saw on Pinterest.

Already half way through the month and as we near the home stretch before Christmas I feel both relief and stress. Relief because of all the things that have occurred parties, decorating, Christmas shopping, and stress because of what is left to come. It’s nice, for me to take them time though, and adore the King as I study the passages for the Jesse Tree. These are absolutely some of my favorite stories!

Day 7: Josephimage

Day 8: Moses and the Law:

The inspiration behind this was taken from Deuteronomy 6 where we are told the importance to impress on our children the law of the Lord and to follow Him with all our hearts. It is the 10 commandments written to look like a finger print. IMG_6574 IMG_6575 IMG_6576

Day 9: The Promised Land:

This past year, I had focused on the theme of God as our shield. This passage below has inspired me to take some time in 2016 to study the theme of overcoming. I guess it’s very similar, but I can’t wait!

Day 10: Ruth and Boaz:

This past summer I used the Ruth study from She Reads Truth. As you can see, it left me with no extra room to add more. If you are looking for a simple and good study, I highly recommend this one. image image image image image image image imageimage

Day 11: King David:

This was hard for me to choose, because 1 Samuel 17 is a sort of  “Lesson for Life”. God doesn’t see things like we see things.

Of course I also wanted to illustrate the first real scene that pushes David to the forefront. image image

Day 12: King Josiah finds the scroll:

I love how in Josiah’s account it says that when he was 16 he began to seek the Lord. So good!image
