We are continuing to work through the various Bible Memory verses activities for grandparents and their grandchildren from the Love passage in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and 13. It's been such a fun way to "hide God's Word" in the hearts of our grandchildren and ourselves and build delightful family memories along the way. Today we are working on "Love…it always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:7b.
As I enjoyed visiting and reading all the wonderfully encouraging and inspirational Bible verses on Word-Filled Wednesday, full of visual delights from all the different photos and pictures, I found two sites that got my creative juices flowing!
Karen from Hallelujah Anyhow illustrated her Bible verse with a drawing done by her very talented nephew, Joseph Lorren. It's drawn with crayon or colored pencil in a style I've seen in some of my grandkids comic books, like The Secret Alliance in the photo above. My grandkids will love to see her nephew's picture. And how fun to help them make a graphic comic book of all the different segments of Love is… from 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and 13 using this technique to the best of their ability. Isn't that a great way to imprint these awesome principles, like Love is Patient and Love is Kind, into their hearts as they use their hands and brains?
Cindy, from I Owe It All To Him, had another cute idea for showing off her Bible verse for the day. She had a gorgeous little bookmark, which I'm guessing she made herself as I know how creative she is. 🙂 I thought it would be fun if we use matching photos with each of the different Bible verses to make book marks for our family and friends for Christmas. We'd be getting a head start on the season, having fun with these activities for grandparents and their grandchildren AND helping our grandkids (and ourselves) learn these verses better and better. Not to mention creating some special family memories with these hand made gifts!
Such fun ideas for our Love Bible Memory Verses projects! I'm looking forward to working on these in the next few weeks! And, of course, we need some praise and worship hymn songs and music to accompany us as we work. Here are links to some of the Smilebox ecards and videos from previous weeks:

Here's another fun one to remind us all to fix our eyes on Jesus, for the long haul of life on earth, followed by a glorious eternity with Him in heaven! It's a kids peppy song, Fix Your Eyes Upon Jesus, by Chris Medway from the album, All Aboard The Heaven Express:
P.S. Would you like to make a cute SmileBox ecard for your grandkids, especially those who live a long way away? It's simple!
