Last winter, the Doorposts blog had a Write Them on the Doorposts contest. To participate, you simply had to submit a photo, or photos, showing how you decorate your home with scripture. I did not participate in the contest, but I got some wonderful ideas on ways to display God’s word in your home.
I’ve already used one of the creative contest submissions in our new home. I got the idea from the Tyler Family who lost their home in a tornado. When they rebuilt their house, they had family and friends write scriptures on the framing of the house. What a wonderful way to wrap your family in God’s word and to literally build your house on the word of God.
I knew I wanted to do this someday, and that someday came sooner than I thought it would. We are in the process of building and our house should be finished some time in August. When they completed the framing, I went in and got to work writing God’s word on the “doorposts” of our home. Here are some pictures of some of the scriptures I wrote down:
|Luke’s room; I meant to write this in the finished basement, but it got switched|
Here are the other scriptures I wrote on the framing:
I’m looking forward to using many more of the wonderful ideas from the contest when our home is finished!
