Advent: Day Fifteen

The ornament for today is a dove and a crown to symbolize the Prophecy of the Prince of Peace. One of my favorite names for Jesus is "Prince of Peace" and I am increasingly thankful that I can rest in Him during all the different seasons of my life. Right now, I have friends who are going through marital problems, cancer treatments, financial troubles, illnesses, etc. My prayer for each of them is for them to experience God's peace in the midst of their struggles. Thank you, Jesus, that you are not only our King of Glory, but our Prince of Peace as well (a line from the song, "Hold Me, Jesus").

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27 (NIV)

Oh, I still need to look for my set of Lentin ornaments . . . some of them could probably make up a set of Advent ornaments for you. Thanks for the encouragement about the posts. :-)
