I was asked to make a bulletin board for the women's ministry at our church... a place where women could post letters and cards to one another, sharing prayer requests and encouragement. We decided to hang the board in the Ladies Room at church (don't laugh) because of all the rooms in our church building, it is the one most frequented on Sunday mornings, hehe.
Anyway, I wanted it to be different than just the standard bulletin, but also did not want to spend alot on this project, so with a canvas drop cloth, some twine, a staple gun and these adorable mini clothespins from walmart, I created this:
I also grabbed this vintage globe out of my mom's storage this past week. It has been in my family for a few generations now, and I have many memories of my mom using it to point out different countries and oceans when I was a little girl. It's pretty sweet, right???
I love having it set up where I see it everyday because it keeps me mindful of the people and places outside of my little world that I should be thinking about and praying for. AND my whole family has been jet setting off to various countries this year, while Hunter and I hold down the fort here at home. My sister and her husband just returned from the Dominican Republic, my mom arrived home from Paupa New Guinea a few days ago, and my dad and Hubby are headed to Argentina in a few short weeks! Where are Hunter, Sadie, and I going you might ask? For a walk around the block of course=)
In all honesty, I am thrilled for each of them and the adventures that this year has held, and Mike's side of our family has been keeping me company here at home, which is a blessing...(thanks guys!)
How about you? Have any wild adventures planned for your summer? or maybe just a day trip to the beach? Hope you have a fabulous Saturday whatever your plans are!
