Christmas Plants



these symbolize life and eternity




symbolizes that the child born in a manager would wear a crown of thorns and and shed drops of blood.




The symbol of the healing power of Christ




A natural reminder of the star of Bethlehem


The Christmas tree


symbolizes the Garden of Paradise


These plants have been associated with Christmas for centuries. To read more see here

At this time a man named Simeon was living in Jerusalem. Simeon was a good man. He loved God and was waiting for God to save the people of Israel. God’s spirit came to him and told him that he would not die until he had seen Christ the Lord.

When Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple to do what the Law of Moses says should be done for a new baby, the Spirit told Simeon to go into the temple. Simeon took the baby Jesus into his arms and praised God







Dont forget God Gave The World Jesus



  1. Beautiful – thanks for that reminder on the plants. I had heard it before, but had forgotten some of them. 🙂

    Thank you for your comment on my blog – I am sorry to hear that your friend lost her dad. Death is so difficult – esp when it is unexpected.
