Sharing scripture.....

If you visit me here very often, you know that one of favorite things to do is to share Bible verses.  When someone I know personally is going through something, I especially love to share devotionals and scriptures that they can HOPEfully take to heart and apply to their situation.  I have a family member who is having a very difficult time on their job and wanted to do something just for them.  I researched Bible verses that went along with what they're struggling with.   My favorite place to visit for that specific reason is Open Bible.  All you have to do is type in your topic and you'll  get a list of relevant Bible verses, or you can choose from a multitude of topics provided.  As I found the verses that I needed, I went to Bible Gateway to find it in the translation I use most of the time (NLT).  I simply copied and pasted each verse into a Word Document, printed and cut them out, used an Elmer's Glue Stick and pasted each one onto an index card, adding a few blank ones at the back in case my friend wants to add their own verses, and tied them together with a piece of twine, as my cards already had the holes punched.  I'm sure there are lots of different ways you could "pretty" these up, but I just wanted mine to remain simple.



An easy way of letting somebody know how much you love and care about them.

Have a Happy Monday, Everybody!

Breathing in Grace,

  4. Deb, this is my 3rd try at leaving a comment. I keep hitting something that takes me into never, never land. lol If you see 3 comments, 2 of them not finished, you'll know it's just your crazy friend in Texas! I love your new header picture, that sky is gorgeous. God gave us so much beauty to enjoy. This afternoon I was watering the plants and the the sun was coming thru the spray of the water making a rainbow! OH...it was so pretty, I didn't want to move the hose and make it go away. I love your index cards, that is a wonderful idea. I know I will be doing that for someone soon. I also want to thank you for introducing me to the Open Bible. I was not aware of that site. I'm going to be visiting there often. Hope your day was full of blessings and happiness! ((hugs))
