About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Visual Reminders of God's promises

So Joshua called together the twelve men he had chosen—one from each of the tribes of Israel. He told them, “Go into the middle of the Jordan, in front of the Ark of the LORD your God. Each of you must pick up one stone and carry it out on your shoulder—twelve stones in all, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. We will use these stones to build a memorial. In the future your children will ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ Then you can tell them, ‘They remind us that the Jordan River stopped flowing when the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant went across.’ These stones will stand as a memorial among the people of Israel forever.” (Joshua 4:4-7 NLT)

These are my "visual" reminder of God's promises to me over the years.

I primed the rocks, with a dark primer. Then spray painted the rocks the oil rubbed bronze. Then I used a gold paint pen to write the verse and year that God used the verse to speak into my life. A great visual to use as a natural conversation about our relationship with God.

  1. Great idea! I was in a study where someone spoke of the line in "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" that says "here I build my Ebeneezer" referring to the very same thing, and she made us all a small wooden base with the "rocks" glued to it. Aren't visual reminders great?!
