Today is "Beautiful Friday" over at Melissa's Blog "The Inspired Home"
I would like to inspire you to begin adding some Beautiful inspirations to your home that will add to the atmosphere around you.
As you may know from my web page and those who are "My Friends" on Facebook; I love Eloquent Thoughts. And it just doesn't end there. I love to put them into Picture Frames and have them in the bathroom where my guests can take a card with them if they so desire. With the software that is out there, one can make up unique type business sized cards made from the CardStock that you can buy at Walmart or your local Stationery store.
These cards are nice to hand to someone who may be feeling low, or great to hand to your friendly grocery clerk.

I have a thought that I framed and put in my bathroom and I have memorized it because I love it so much. Mind you memorization is hard for me, but with God's grace I was able to memorize this one. Even DH has this one memorized! Just read it when he would use my bathroom.

Here's what it says:
"All the way up the steep road leading to eternal life, there are wellsprings of joy to refresh the weary. Those who walk in wisdoms ways are even in tribulation, exceedingly joyful. For He whom their soul loves , walks invisible beside them. At each upward step they discern more distinctly the touch of His hand. At every step, brighter gleamings of glory from the unseen fall upon their path, and their songs of praise reaching ever a higher note, ascend to reach the songs of Angels before the throne." Gods Amazing Grace, 264

I also have some pictures that are antique of Jesus as our Shepherd and Jesus kneeling in the Garden of Gethsemane. These pictures were given to my Step Father's Mother when He was born, by one of the Nun's in the Hospital, who delivered him. He would have been in his mid 80's by now. I have those hung in various places in our home. Also have a picture of an open bible with a candle to it's side, that hangs above our fireplace in the living room, that you may have seen in one of my posts.

Have a small 10 commandment's "Stand-up" card on a shelf with an antique bible and old speck's on top of it, next to a Cole oil lantern.

As people enter our home they know that we love the Lord and His word. And hopefully they can also tell by our actions too.....

Sayings; Thoughts; Plaques; Pictures; can keep your mind close to the Lord as you are living in your home. They can change your thoughts to think on Heavenly things and keep you close to Jesus. See what you can do to add to the Inspirational Theme of your Home. What you have in your home, says allot about who you are and your personality.

Hugs, Jan
