Sermons From the Bathroom Mirror

Actually, this little sign has been up next to our front door for years now. I thought it would be good for the kiddos to see this each day (or evening) JUST before they left our home...as a little reminder. : )

Happy Sunday,
M.L.

That's a HUUUUUUUUUUGE reminder. Kind of glad it wasn't by my childhood home's front door...or maybe it should have been....hmmm... Seriously, that reminder looms quite effectively, doesn't it? Why is Jesus always depicted as white, when we know being born in that part of the world, and additionally living before sunscreen was invented, he really couldn't hae been. Rhetorical question. :)

Ha! I had left your blog up on the computer while I ran to refill my coffee. I came back to find my 3 yr. old sitting in the chair with his mouth hanging open. He pointed to your header with wide eyes and said, "WOW! How did she DOOOO that?!?!" (Gotta love a guy with good decorating taste! heehee)

Always a good reminder. That and "Remember who you are!" Don't know if it did any good but I tried. Mimi

That's a really good reminder! I put "Be Strong in the Lord" with a drawing of a little soldier boy on my boys' door. The younger boys were thrilled. My teenage son just rolled his eyes at me.

I had that sign on the inside of our front door. so, everytime they went out side and into the world it was there for them to see. I think they wanted to return with
honor. Great reminder.

That's a good one, it sorta give the chills too...like if you're naughty you're gonna get it. :)

OH, I do this very same thing, I even posted about getting my point across, by signs throughout the house. At one point I think they're looking at you while you're talking, but they are masters at tuning you out.

Great sign by the way!!!!!

I love it! This is just the perfect reminder- I could see Heavenly Father putting this reminder by the door of His own home as we left His presence :)

A good reminder appropriate for any age....even us!

I like that.
This is a wonderful example to compare with one of my grandparents. Well one grandparent and one strange person he remarried. At their home, next to the door, as the last thing you saw was a sign that said, "Don't go away mad, just go away." Hmmmmm.

I love that sign, especially by the door. When I was a teenage girl, my dad would say..."Jacqueline, Remember who you are". I would love for you to come visit my blog at Once Upon a Fairyland. I've enjoyed my time with you and will come visit you often. Blessings from Washington State!
