Bulletin Board: Check

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.

Can you find the Jeremiah passage?

    Holy cow you are good at this. Can ‘bulletin boards’ be its own category?

    I have a cd from a lady who has Bible verses set to cool music, and Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorites. “I know, I know, I know, I know the plans I have for you. *clap clap*…” I sing it around Deborah (it’s their wedding verse), and I believe it drives her crazy.

    Brad, that is AWESOME!! I LOVE IT!! You, you’re good, you! It’s so eye appealing & what a great, great message too!! You should make smaller versions of it & sell them! Or give them to friends…I’ll take an 8X10 or 5X7….I’m not picky.

    Truly! So, if the literature religion teaching doesn’t work for ya’, I’d write you a reference letter for being a bulletin board meister somewhere. [Mine are so lame in comparison.]

    “We are not worthy!”

    […and what a great witness, as always, sir!]
