At Faith Sisters this week they are starting a new challenge called "The 12 Days of Christmas Faithbooking Challenge". :)
This week's challenge is hosted by Susan Godfrey, from Simply Susan Designs and features the first verse:
On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
THE PARTRIDGE: The partridge in a pear tree is Christ Jesus upon the Cross. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge because she would feign injury to decoy a predator away from her nestlings. She was even willing to die for them.
THE PEAR TREE: The tree is the symbol of the fall of the human race through the sin of Adam and Eve. It is also the symbol of its redemption by Jesus Christ on the tree of the Cross.
MY TRUE LOVE: True Love refers to God
