Jesse Tree Crochet Advent Calendar: December 4

Noah's Flood

"Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: 'I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.' And God said, 'This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.'"

- Genesis 9:9-13

  1. This one looks so easy after those last 2! Day 2 took me all day...I think I might do this one with authentic rainbow colors.

    1. I was worried people might get discouraged after Day 2. That one was a doozy, but none of the others should be quite as mentally challenging. I'm glad you're still with us. :)
