You can purchase it through Amazon. I highly recommend it.
I have had so much fun reading this book that I thought I would take a few of the stories and share them with you here. The first one I was really intrigued by was the Christmas Code. I have never heard of a Christmas code until now.
We know this Christmas code as.... The 12 Days of Christmas.
It is said that for nearly 300 years i was against the law in England to be a member of the Catholic Church. Catholic parents however didn't keep from teaching their children about God but they had to be creative. As the story goes several parents got together and wrote "The 12 Days of Christmas". They used this code hidden in the form of a song. Here you go:
The Twelve Days of Christmas a Christmas Code
"My true love" - God, who gives all the gifts listed in the song
"A partdige in a pear tree" - Jesus, who have his life on a tree, the cross.
"Two turtle doves" - Old and New Testament
"Three French hens" - Faith, Hope and Love
"Four calling birds" - The four Gospels : Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
"Five golden rings" - First five books of the Bible known as the Pentateuch
"Six geese a laying" - Six days of Creation
"Seven swans a swimming" - Seven gifts of the Spirit found in Romans 12:6-8
"Eight maids a milking" - Eight beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-10
"Nine ladies dancing" - Nine fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23
"Ten lords a leaping" - Ten Commandments
"Eleven pipers piping" - Eleven faithful disciples
"Twelve drummers drumming" - Twelve points in the apostles creed
Interesting isn't it?! Who would have thought? Or maybe you already knew this and I am just now discovering it. Ha!
