Do you ever have one of those projects brewing around in your mind for like….EVER….and you know it won’t take long to complete but you just keep putting it off because so many other things dominate your time?
Well, I finally did it. And just in time for Holy Week, too, as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the greatest Hope we have in this world: A resurrected Savior who loves us, longs to be in relationship with us, and extends unconditional grace each and every day of our lives.
Using 650 pt, Monotype Corsiva font, I painted an old scrap of wood with these life-changing words from a song written by Gloria Gaither in the mid-1960’s:
Because He lives I can face tomorrow,
****Double the joy when I hear my children singing Because He Lives as they, too, pass through this doorway several times a day. Although our children have danced with the Gaithers from the womb, this familiar tune fills our home frequently the last two weeks, and for that I am grateful.
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I adore that song. And now its in my head for the day – thank you! I know what you mean about delaying a simple project. I'm doing better about just jumping into it and getting it done. The dusting and toilets can wait, right?
Love this idea! I found your blog while searching for Anne Ortlund style notebooks. You have lots of great projects and encouragement to share. I'm reading backwards, as I have the time:) thanks for sharing.
