Part of making-your-home (homemaking) is the decorating part. I’d be lying if I told you that was my expertise. The truth is, I get all my inspiration from Pinterest and then I just copy it. Ha ha! They say imitation is a form of flattery, right?
If you were to come into my home, you’d be instantly aware that I love words.
There are words EVERYWHERE.
I have printed words on the wall. There are printed graphics that are framed. We have blocks of wood with words painted on them. I have painted chalkboards in the kitchen with scripture. There are chalkboards in the bathroom. There is a whiteboard in the kitchen. Letterboards galore live here. I have window clings on the mirrors. Jewelry? Yup, words there too.
Scripture is everywhere. Funny sayings are in abundance.
Why surround yourself with truth and laughter?
Because if I don’t, my inner voice with negativity is louder. Lies are loud.
I take the Scripture about writing things on your doorpost (Deuteronomy chapter 6 and also chapter 11) to be very literal.
It is crazy important to surround yourself with truth. Every day. It’s a daily, hourly, minute reminder of what’s really true.
Laughter is good medicine. You are God’s workmanship. A joyful heart is good. No one can snatch you out of His hand.
And here’s a homemaking bonus – it’s really easy to decorate your home with words. Find free prints on Pinterest and go to town with some Dollar Tree frames. Don’t like the color? Hello, spray paint!
Letterboards and chalkboards are easily changed as often as you like! Change it up with the seasons! 🙂
Don’t know how to letter? No problem – you can use my cheater method.
Find phrases and scripture that speak to your soul and make you laugh.
