What's in a Scripture?

It's been a long time...but I have missed blogging. Life jut got busy.

Crazy busy.

With two kids, holidays and mostly with my new business venture

Nonetheless this being the first of February I have a new month resolution! Not really, I just am committing to blog again because I love it, I miss it and I need it! I have decided to committ to posting at least twice a week and enjoy it, rather than make it a chore. So, there you are!

And so, for my first post of the year....

I have been convicted of late to add some different, more meaningful decor to my home. Decor that doesn't just say:

"Welcome, we are people who love earth tones, bright colors and crosses."

That's what we have in our home right now. Our walls are bright earth tone, yellow with lots of green and brown accents. And we have crosses. Various sizes, about 5 in the main areas of the house.

But that's it. And I as I said, I have been convicted.

Crosses are great. But I think I need more than a cross to say who we are. I need more than a cross to remind me of who I am. I need more than a cross to teach my children who we are.

So...I am on the look out for scriptures to cover our walls.

Scriptures that will remind us of how great our God is, what He does for us and who we are in Him. My hope is that my children will be reminded of these verses when they need to be because they saw them every day. That they will be stirred by the one in their room when they wake each morning. That they will know who God is and who they are in Him when they read them. That they will be reminded of home when they come across them in thier daily lives.

This is what I have so far.

Living room, above our TV - "Be still and know I am God." Ps. 46:10 - This is where we do most of our living and what better place to be reminded of who He is than the place where life happens most.

Master Bedroom - "Come, let us take our fill of Love until the Morning." Prov. 7:17-18. ...I don't think I have to explain that one...

Kitchen - "Whoever is of merry heart has a continual feast." Prov. 15:15...Where we eat and unload our day to each other. Perfect, I think!

Crazy Boy's room: "And the boy continued to grow in stature and in favor with the LORD and with men." 1 Samuel 2:26 - This is the scripture I have prayed over him since we chose his name. What greater blessing to have than favor!

And finally, Baby girl...Now this is where I am stumped! I have prayed so many prayers over her but I can't seem to find "the one." The one that fits her spirit, who I want her to be or that will direct her.

So, my goal for the week is to find that special verse for my sweet girl.

And to find a way to make these/purchase these on a budget!

So, does your home reflect the truths you believe? I challenge you to think of ways to really bless your home and all who enter it!

I'll let you know what else I come up with and what I make later!

Great idea!

My favorite is probably one of the most commonly hung ones...I like the Joshua 'as for me and my house..' such a nice reminder that we don't have to follow the dictates of the world :)

I love that you have a verse picked out for Sam from Samuel.

Very excited that you'll be posting again!
