Winter Crafts and Fun Ideas

 

Although great ideas don’t come to me very often, I had one just the other day, and now I can share it with you!

I hope you can use it in your own life, not just the way I did, but also using your own creativity for other things.

Week of February 22 011

The way it happened was this: I was doing an assignment in Sarah Mally’s book Before You Meet Prince Charming, where I was supposed to look up verses about what kind of heart God wants us to have as Christians.  I did that, but then I began wondering what kind of heart God doesn’t like, so I looked up verses to contrast with the good, and came up with a whole list, as follows. (Note: I tried to do this in two columns so you could see the neat contrasts, but it didn’t work.)

Understanding (1 Kings 3:9,12)
Blameless (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Tender (2 Chronicles 34:27)
Upright (Psalm 7:10)
Broken or Contrite (Psalm 34:18)
Clean (Psalm 51:10)
Merry (Proverbs 17:22)
Pure (Matthew 5:8)
Gentle and Lowly (Matthew 11:29)
Forgiving (Ephesians 4:32)
Peace-filled (Colossians 3:15)
Trustful (Proverbs 3:5)
Whole-Hearted (Psalm 119:10)
Blameless (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Blameless and Upright (Psalm 37:37)

Complaining (Psalm 95:10)
Sinful (Psalm 41:4)
Haughty (2 Samuel 22:28)
Wicked (Psalm 37:38)
Proud (Psalm 101:5)
Perverse (Psalm 10:31)
Deceitful (Proverbs 12:20)
Worthless (Proverbs 10:20)
Devious (Proverbs 16:9)
Mischievous (Psalm 140:2)
Backsliding (Proverbs 14:14)
Fretting against God (Proverbs 19:3)
Double-hearted (Psalm 12:2)

But the list is kind of boring, and I want to learn them and weed out the bad heart attitudes as I  put the godly heart verses into practice. So here comes the idea: cutting out paper hearts with the verses on them, and then hang them in a noticeable place.

First I typed each kind of heart up on the computer and printed them…

Week of February 22 019 Week of February 22 017got out construction paper, glue stick, and scissors of many kinds to make valentine-type hearts to put the verses on….

Week of February 22 023 Week of February 22 020

and there they are! Well, some of them. I have all the other ones that are on the list, too.

And now they’re hanging on the wall above the stairs, so that when I come down, I can see them and memorize them!

Week of February 22 016

I’m hanging them two at a time every so often so we have a chance to memorize the verses and hopefully put them into practice in our daily lives.

Well, I guess that’s all! I hope you enjoyed the idea I had. I had a lot of fun with it! I love cutting things out with fancy scissors and making things that are so practical pretty as well.

If you want,  you could comment below about similar ideas you’ve had. I would really enjoy that a lot.  And maybe I can do them too!

Until then, may God bless you and keep you as you serve Him.
