Winter Mantel

I promised you the winter mantel. 

My inspiration from—three guesses, and the first two don’t count!—Pinterest:

A little scrounging around the house, a thrift store run for baskets (.50 each) and the 70’s wall hanging-turned chalkboard ($1.25) , and here’s what we got:




Romans 12: 9-16 is first on my memorization list this year, and for a family in a busy and sometimes difficult season of life, that portion of the verses stands out.

Others above myself.




For whatever reason, this mantel makes me smile. 

Thanks so much for your prayers for my back!  I am still moving slowly, but I’m in much less pain than before!

Be blessed today!

  6. Hey there. I requested an invite from Pintrest. Didn't know there's a waiting list. Interesting.
    What's also interesting is that I've been reading and re-reading Romans 12 lately myself. I moved from my NASB that's all marked up to the clean-slated NIV and have really been enjoying reading without distraction of my marks and the difference in the wording. NIV and Romans 12, pretty neat. Lots of good stuff in that chapter. Say hey all around! Jenn
