Thank you for joining us for our Christmas Faithbooking Challenge! This year, our theme is “The 12 Days of Christmas”. We’ve all heard this song growing up, but I never realized that each verse of the song also had a Biblical meaning. So, over the next few weeks, we will be exploring the Biblical meanings of each verse of the song and you are to create a layout which shows what it means to you.
Each week you will be presented with the traditional verse, it’s Biblical meaning, and a free mini kit that you can use to create your layout. You are not required to use the kit, but it’s being made available to you as a free gift for a limited time only. After the 12 weeks are over, you should have a reminder that you can share with your family every Christmas as to what the Biblical meanings are for “The 12 Days of Christmas”!
This week’s challenge is hosted by Audra’s Little Scraps
8th Day: The “eight maids a milking ” reminded children of the eight beatitudes listed in the Sermon on the Mount. (as told in the book of Matthew)
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.
Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy
Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they that suffer persecution for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
This kit is available free for a limited time click HERE or on the picture.
