There are pictures of goats hanging up around church these days.
It makes Cora FREAK OUT. She loves goats at the moment. Why? I have no idea really. Whenever you have your phone or iPad out she thinks that you’re going to show her videos of baby goats! Or she hassles you with her adorable, “goat? goat? goat? awwww baby!” until you do.
So back to the goats hanging up around church. It is a fundraiser our church is doing to raise funds for a missionary in Syria. The idea is that we as a church will be able to help fund a goat farm for a group of missionaries there who will help build the community through the work and care of the goats. So, our church gave $10 to whoever wanted to try to use that money to make money out of it for the cause.
During all the crazy of the last couple of weeks(you know, buying and selling a house, packing, going to a conference, chasing two crazy littles, being pregnant(and huge as people like to remind me)) I came up with a plan. I had to think of something that I still had the supplies unpacked for, and that I could make multiples of (instead of doing anything custom which seems to be my normal…) I decided to make a scripture calendar.
Usually in August, as everyone is gearing back to go back to school there are all sorts of calendars and goals going on for the new school year.
So the idea of this is that there is a scripture a month to help you memorize a verse each month!
They are 5×7 size printed on card stock.
There are twelve verses for August 2018-July 2019 My hope is that these verses will encourage you daily whether you hang this on your fridge or put it next to your computer while you work. You will have the opportunity to read those verses daily and hopefully bury them deep in your heart. So, who wants to help a missionary purchase some goats while getting a pretty little calendar with a purpose? 😉
They are $20 each(plus shipping if you don’t live near me). Email me or contact me if you’re interested!
My prayer is that they would encourage you and point you constantly to the Lord. We all could use that, right? Amen. 🙂
