Sorry for another school post, but it’s what I did all day today. Actually, I didn’t do a lot, but it is a crucial part of switching into “school mode”: I got my bulletin board up for the year. It’s based on our school’s theme verse for the year, Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I always like to choose a verse that compliments the theme verse and use that as the primary thrust for my design. The complementary verse I chose was Hebrews 10:23. That’s the text you can read in the picture below. It made me think of those crazy-tough plants that grow in the tiniest cracks and how they bloom in spite of heat and drought. The bulletin board message: God cracks the toughest situations for us and lets faith grow. “He who promised is faithful.”
I was particularly proud of my idea for the black-on-black words at the bottom. To make them stand out a little, I wiped over the paper with my chalkboard erasers. I’m a clever little monkey.
