Seal Scripture into Your Home

Our dishwasher leaked and soaked the floor. Insurance is covering the flood, but our home has been torn apart for weeks. 

It's just starting to come back together. The cabinets are reinstalled and the bare wood counter tops are in place, now we wait for the Formica to be glued on. 

I noticed pencil lines on the bare wood and thought "hmm, if they can glue over those pencil lines they can probably glue over other pencil lines." 

I started thinking about what I would want to hide under our counters and first thought of having the boys write their names and ages. I love hiding things in our home. I got this idea from my parents. When we were kids my parents cut open a wall for remodeling and they let us hide a jar of "treasures" in the wall. It was filled with notes and childhood nick knacks.
Then I thought about Scripture. Wouldn't it be cool to seal Gods word into our home? 

I picked a few off the top of my head and then asked my Facebook friends for some ideas. 

They are hard to photograph but here are a few.
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  - Isaiah 41:31  I asked for scriptures from friends on Facebook and my dear friend Dana chose this one.
This one I adapted a bit from Psalm 30:11-12 I changed some of the words to make it sound like God talking directly to us.  This is what we do as part of our Bible Study.  It says "I turned your wailing into dancing, I removed your sackcloth and clothed you with JOY that your heart may sing to me and not be silent."

Since it is so hard to capture these in photos I decided to make a video with me reading the scripture so that we could always remember what they say and where they are.

This could also work on studs in a wall or on the underlayment on the floor.  If you like this idea, I say go for it!!  That way I won't be the only crazy person.  ;)
