The Jesse Tree–Day Sixteen

Today began our series of readings focused on the prophets. We started with Elijah, and the story of him being taken to Heaven in a chariot of fire, (thus the ornament of what Ladybug deemed a “carriage.”), and transitioned into Elisha, who was given a portion of Elijah’s spirit (2 Kings 2:1-14). I was always confused by these two prophets as a child–isn’t it funny how similar their names are, and how they came one right after the other in the Bible? So far my children seem to be smarter than I am, however, and knew as soon as they saw the chariot who the story would be about!
