Jesse Tree Ornament - The Sun

"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also." Genesis 1:16 (KJB)
Patterns for crafting a sun symbol for your Jesse tree.

A color suggestion for painting the sun symbol.
       The sun; the great luminary which God created at the beginning, to govern the day. It furnishes a great part of the noble similitudes used by sacred authors, who to represent great public calamity, speak of the sun as being obscured, etc...
  • "For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine." Isaiah 13:10
  • "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously." Isaiah 24:23
  • "She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day: she hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the LORD." Jeremiah 15:9
  • "And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light." Ezekiel. 32:7
  • "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." Joel 2:31
  • "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:" Amos 8:9
       To express a long continuance of any thing glorious and illustrious, it is said, it shall continue as long as the sun. 
  • "His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed." Psalm 72:17
  • "His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me." Psalm 89:36
So the reign of the Messiah, under whose happy dominion the light of the moon shall equal that of the sun, and that of the sun be seven times more than ordinary.
  • "Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound." Isaiah 30:26
Christ is called the Sun of righteousness,
  • "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." Malachi. 4:2
The compass of the whole earth is described by the expression, from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same; or rather, from east to west, 
  • "A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof." Psalm 50:1
  • "And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south." Psalm 107:3
  • "From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised." Psalm 113:3
