. 26/365 .
sometimes i'm at a complete loss when it comes to finding words to write on my chalkboard. i want the words to be meaningful. consistent with whatever time/season/holiday we're in or close to. and i want it to be a teaching tool for me with my children. every single night at dinner they ask me what it says so, to me, writing bible verses is always the best choice. it usually takes me FOREVER and everandeverandever to come up with something. this time, i wanted it to be super cute, almost valentines-ish, but not overboard lovey dovey. know what i mean? and since i couldn't think of anything else, i used this verse which i already have in print on my desk. but it's certainly one of my all-time favorites right now. and i LOVE that i get to read it to my children all day. and it's definitely a lesson we all need 'round here.
it made me think ... i want to start bible memorization with my girls and this chalkboard is the perfect tool for that. it's in a central location and said chalkboard is already part of our everyday, since we already talk daily about what it says. i could pick a verse a week to memorize and keep it on the chalkboard for us to read all day. brilliant!
