Ok, the clip-art is kind of cheesy, but I did all of that chevron by myself! (Go old school Microsoft Paint!)
This all stems from wanting to have a daily verse calendar like the one my grandparents have had for years. Theirs flips over and has verses on the front and back. I couldn’t really come up with a way to do that without a stand, so I grabbed a bunch of index cards and got writing. I found a great daily verse list here. It’s very cool how they arranged them to align with certain holidays and themes. I was impressed.
You should be too. I put my hand into very, very painful writer’s cramp putting this out. I found a recipe card box with a ridge on the top, that would fit all of the cards. 365 cards. Quite a feat.
Then, I got to thinking that this would be a fun thing to share with others. I love coming into my kitchen in the morning, while I’m letting my Keurig heat up (who has time for a real tea pot anymore!?) and pulling out the day’s Bible verse. My handwriting isn’t the best, so you can get yourself a prettyfied pdf color version.
The plan is to do the whole year…and probably include two other versions: King James Version (KJV) and New International Version (NIV). So, here is November’s list. They look like the above and below, but four to a page (all but February will have 8 pages)
- Download the .pdf file below.
- Print onto white 8.5 x 11 card-stock (other colors might be ok, but you’ll have to test that out yourself).
- Cut along the dotted lines then sort into numeric order.
- Prop up on a little stand, or keep in a drawer and swap out on the fridge. Or buy a recipe box with a ridge in the top for easy reading.
- Keep in a prominent place where the members of the household will easily see it. The kitchen table is good, if you have breakfast there.
- Discuss verse(s) with family and encourage reading the surrounding verses for context and meditation throughout the day.
