in the works

memory verse cards. it turned out to be a bigger project than i thought. first i had to skim all my bible graffiti for my favorite verses. then i had to skim the kids’ entire set of “the bible story” looking for relevant pictures. then scan them all. then hubby had to create a faux rick rack border in autocad (just ask him how he’s suffered). next i have to crop all the pictures and pop them in their borders. then align the memory verses to print on the back and take the whole get-up to kinkos.

the verse for the picture of abigail on the left is “a gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” i don’t have anything picked out for absalom on the right there, if anyone has any ideas. i just liked the picture of him jockeying his speed donkey.  and hopefully i will get them printed/laminated soon.  i plan to keep them on the fridge and switch them up every week (i think i have 30). my guess is that if the kids can associate a verse with a picture they will be able to store and retrieve it better. plus, it’s just dang fun. “a sword for the lord and for gideon!”

    2 Samuel 18:9–appropriately gruesome. Or the last verse in the chapter.
