Daily Living Made Easier

It’s that time of year – the time to be enjoying all the new calendars you have around the house – from wall calendars to desk calendars to perpetual block calendars on the kitchen counter. One of my favorite gifts for people on my Christmas list, from elderly parents and relatives on down to grandkids, is a Scripture calendar tailored to their interests. For many, that means sharing encouraging Bible verses along with the lovely pictures of the “painter of light,” on the Thomas Kinkade wall calendars with Scripture

This year, I accidentally bought an extra one and decided to hang it on my bathroom wall. WHAT a GREAT IDEA! I wish I’d thought to do this YEARS ago. It is so nice to see the lovely pictures along with encouraging Bible verses that change each month. And, I must say, this month’s is one of those sweet and comforting Bible verses as well:

As for me, I shall sing of Your strength;

Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness

in the morning,

For You have been my stronghold and

a refuge in the day of my distress.

Psalm 59:16

With several friends and elderly relatives on my prayer list for such things as cancer, safety in battle, and comfort during loss, I was so blessed as I was Scripture praying and reading this verse this morning. I’ve decided to strive for the goal to read it every day. Hopefully, at the end of the year, I’ll have hidden away several encouraging and comforting Bible verses into my heart.

I’m not going to stress if I forget. With all the goings on of our Sandwich Generation lives, dealing with the issues of taking care of the elderly parents and babysitting active grandchildren, that would be a prescription for frustration, wouldn’t it? But just by thinking about it, I know God will remind us at least several times this month and I’m looking forward to that. How about you? What steps are you going to take to “hide God’s Word in your heart” in 2011? We’d love to hear. 

P.S. This is also great when the grandkids come to visit. It’s another delightful way to encourage them in the Lord. First by them seeing this each time THEY go into the bathroom. And second, you can use the encouraging Bible verses on the calendar as a bedtime verse for them. When one of my grandkids spent the night recently, I read this month’s verse to them right before reading them their bedtime stories. Very handy, a great example, and the gift of the Word of God to help them sleep peacefully. A blessing for all of us in our Sandwich Generation families.

    it reminds me of the old testament scripture
    to hang His word on the doorpost and tell
    our children and grandchildren on the way
    here and there.

    “as for me I will sing of Your strength!”

    That is a wonderful idea to have scripture available no matter what room we are in. Have a blessed Sunday.

    This is truly beautiful calender. More than likely I wont spend money on a calender this year but if I were this would be it. Blessings,

    Wow! This is beautiful and a great idea. Many words of wisdom here today. Thank you. Thomas Kinkade is one of my favorites. We have three of his paintings hanging on our walls. All three were gifts.

    I carry a pocket size New Testament and devotional in my commuter bag.

  3. Hi Clif, Oh my, I bet they are lovely! I love his pictures, and even more, I love when they are combined with encouraging and comforting Bible verses. He has such a blessed ministry! 🙂

  4. Hi Ginger, Thanks for popping in! Like you, I usually don’t buy a calendar for myself – it’s usually gifts for various family and friends – from elderly parents and relatives on down to grandkids. My primary calendar is on my computer. But since I overbought by mistake, I’ve been so blessed, so I suspect I’ll make this an annual investment in the future 🙂 Got another great story about this calendar and its comforting Bible verses coming soon. 🙂

  5. Hi Whidbey Woman – GREAT idea! Very wise way to “be prepared.” I have a small Bible in my car, plus a Bible app on my iPhone – PocketBible FREE app - and all my computers. :) And, of course, Crosswalk, Biblos, and Bible Gateway bookmarked! :)

  6. Thank you! And Thanks for popping over to visit, Donnie. 🙂

  7. Ahhh, Lea, you have hit the nail on the head. Deuteronomy 6 is as wonderful for grandparents as parents, full of encouraging Bible verses to help us with raising children and grandchildren, isn’t it! 🙂

  8. This really is a good idea. I love Thomas Kinkade. I see Clif has already told you about our paintings. They are certainly treasured by both of us.
    Blessings,
    Charlotte
