Okay guys, I'm going to get a little personal here.
When I sit down and make my goals for the year, one that always makes the list is "build my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Savior." Its something I feel that always can use improving upon. Last year I made making it to my church meetings more regularly my priority. This year its saying my personal prayers.
I will admit that I have become horribly lax in saying my prayers. I know that personal prayer is the key to having a close relationship with God and I am determined to do better. But because I'm out of habit, it is really easy for me to simple forget to pray. Lets face it, I forget to EAT some days and I have a belly that growls at me!
So my solution was to make a not so subtle reminder to sit next to my bed.
I made a simple print telling me to remember to pray. I also included a favorite scripture quote. It reads "Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you...." which pretty much sums up what I want. I want to feel close to the Lord.
The frame is a cheap dollar store frame that I gave new life to with a crackle finish.
I have been having a lot of fun with crackle lately and it is really simple to do. Just take a frame, give it a base coat and let dry. Then paint a layer of craft glue, let that begin to setup but not dry completely, and then add a top coat of paint in a different color. Then just sit back and watch the magic happen!
If anyone else needs a reminder to pray anywhere in their home, here is the graphic I used. Just click, save, and print. The image is made at 5x7 but you are welcome to resize however works for you.
So what things are you working on this year?
