This Life of Jesus Bracelet tells the story of the events of the life of Jesus Christ using different colors and shapes of beads.
I just knew I had to make one and share it for Easter.
Story of the Life of Jesus
One night there was a bright star
Which guided three men
Who were the three wise men
To the birth of Jesus
Who later in life became a carpenter
And a fisher of men and souls.
He had twelve apostles
who spread the Word of Christ.
But on one black day of hatred, envy & death
He was crucified.
He shed His blood for us
to purify & save us.
He rose and is now in Heaven
seated with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
And He did all this because of His great love for us.
