Show & Tell Friday -- Advent Puzzle

For Advent, a time of preparing for Christmas, we typically will read stories including Jotham's Journey and this year we will probably read the next one in the series. When my in-laws last visited they brought us an advent puzzle that we are all looking forward to putting together. The boys love puzzles and can put the 1000 piece puzzles together in a matter of days. So, they are itching to get working on this new puzzle but we will wait until Dec. 1st. The puzzle is called Passion Tree by Jack Dawson and it follows the story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Each ornament in the painting illustrates an event and shows HIS story. It includes a short devotional for each day as you search for the various things hidden in the painting, all the while pointing us to the only reason we celebrate Christmas. They sell this on FamilyLife today and I see they have an accompanying hardcover devotional book to go along with it. (Click on the photo for more info.)

For more Show & Tells please visit Mary aka Canadagirl at Raising 4 Godly Men.

Oooooh!! I LOVE this!

We love puzzles here, we just finished one, in fact.

But this just takes the cake. I am SO going to have to look into that. I should even be over by FamilyLife this week and can stop into their bookstore. We know lots of people who work there. Bob LePine used to be our Sunday School teacher.
