BRIAN & ANGELA

WHICH OF THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IS YOUR FAVORITE ?


SEVEN SWANS A SWIMMING ~ ELEGANT
**************************************
SWANS ~ always look elegant
Floating on the water
If ever I get married
I would like a Swan-like DAUGHTER !
*******************************
SWANS in the UK
Are a protected species
Which is why on Christmas Day
They're never on our Dinner Dishes !
*******************************
The meaning in the CAROL
Gifts of the of the SPIRIT HOLY
Prophecy and Service
Teaching and Encouragement
Giving Leadership and Mercy
All of these are Heaven sent !
*************************************************
Thanks for visiting ~ Please chose your DAY ~ BRIAN XOX


Five Gold Rings
*************************
Rings symbolize eternity
made out of precious gold
Often to show love
and commitment
**************************
The meaning in the carol
First five books of the
Old testament
Each more valuable
than a gold ring


TEN LORDS A~LEAPING ~ THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
************************************
In the CAROL the Lords were chosen
To represent the TEN COMMANDMENTS
Because they had Authority. These
Commandments form Basis of Civil Law
In many Countries today. The first 4
Deal with our relationship to God and
Respecting his Holy Day Sabbath or Sunday
5. We are to respect our Parents. The final
Five are the basis for Civil Law and we are
Forbidden to 6. Murder 7. Commit Adultery
8. Steal 9. Be False Witnesses 10. Covet
Coveting is being envious of Your Neighbours
Wife or possessions etc. We should be content!
****************************************
If every Country on Earth honoured GOD
As their Creator and followed the other
SIX COMMANDMENTS ~ Planet Earth would be
Much Happier and we would not be in the
Mess we are currently in. We could make
a start (and a difference) by following them
In our own personal Lives and Community !
*************************************
Thanks for visiting ~ Please add your DAY !


2 TURTLE DOVES
-------------
Symbolise Love and Faithfulness. TWO doves represent enduring, ever faithful, bonding love.
The two turtle doves respect and work with one another, something we should do with eachother in the world :)


NINE LADIES DANCING ~ NINE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
*******************************************
In the UK we have just completed Strictly Come Dancing
Our CELEBRITY GIRLS who take part are not DANCERS
They are Newscasters ~ Weather Girls ~ Pop Singers
Politicians ~ Actresses but each week they are transformed !
They come out in their Silk ~ Sequins ~ Satin and Smiles
Each week they become more beautiful and competent
********************************************
This is how the Nine Fruit of the Spirit operate
Love ~ Joy ~ Peace ~ Patience ~ Gentleness
Goodness ~ Faith ~ Humility ~ Self Control !
These are the nine inner qualities which
Enable us to live the Christian Life ~ day-by-day
They also make us much better DANCERS !
****************************************************
Thanks for visiting ~ Please add another DAY ~ Love BRIAN XOX


A partridge in a pear tree
***************************
The partridge represents Jesus
and the pear tree represents the cross
The ultimate symbol for Christians
everywhere around the world
A crown of thorns on his head
Carrying the cross on his back
His mind was on you!


HALF WAY THERE 7 ~ 5 ~ 10 ~ 2 ~ 9 ~ 1 ONLY SIX MORE!
***********************************************
FOUR CALLING BIRDS ~ THE FOUR GOSPELS !
***********************************************
MATTHEW ~ Written for the JEWS and represents JESUS
As the MESSIAH ~ Matthew takes his genealogy back to
ABRAHAM and DAVID ~ Israel's greatest KING !
MARK ~ Written for the ROMANS and represents JESUS
As GOD's SERVANT ~ so there is no genealogy !
In the Authorised Version (1611) of Mark every verse begins
AND ~ It is s Gospel full of the activity of a Servant !
LUKE ~ Written for the GREEKS and represents JESUS
As the Son of Man. Luke's genealogy goes back to ADAM !
JOHN ~ Written for the CHRISTIANS represents JESUS
As the ETERNAL SON of GOD ~ JESUS does not need
A GENEALOGY because he has always existed & always will
*****************************************************
These FOUR GOSPELS ~ taken together give us
A complete and accurate picture of the Birth & Life of
JESUS and equally important of His Death and Ressurection
All Scripture is inspired by GOD and teaches us TRUTH
And presents JESUS as Our EXAMPLE and as Our SAVIOUR
CHRISTMAS is all about THE BOY ~ JESUS ~ AMEN !
***********************************************
Thanks for reading ~ Read the GOSPELS as well ~ BRIAN XOX
