TidBits: Did You Know?

The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus Christ. Two Turtle Doves are the Old and New Testaments. Three French Hens stand for faith, hope, and love. Four Calling Birds are the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Five Golden Rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of...the Old Testament. Six Geese a-laying stand for the six days of creation. Seven Swans a-swimming represent the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit-prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation, contribution, leadership, and merry; Eight Maids a-milking are the eight beatitudes; Nine Ladies Dancing are the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; Ten Lords a-leaping are the Ten Commandments; Eleven Pipers piping stand for the eleven faithful disciples; and Twelve Drummers drumming symbolizes the 12 points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.

Keep this in mind, try to remember this in our every day of life. There are so many truths that we can learn from these words.
