Bits O Honey

Here's some "other beeswax" for you.....
I don't know about you but around our house the summer months foster a lot of "togetherness" with my kids (*insert crazed smile here*). I love our children but it is easy for me to slip into negativity and be quick tempered when I am repeating myself for the 1000th time and breaking up fight #113 of the day. All the while, encouraging my own kids to "use kind words!!"

I read this verse in Proverbs this morning and was inspired to create some digital art with it that I could see daily to remind me of how my attitude should be, not only with the kiddos, but with my husband, friends, and others too.
I also happen to love any decoration having to do with bees since our last name starts with the letter "B". So I came up with this little thingy using graphics from the beloved Graphics Fairy. I just love her site and all the beautiful images she shares for FREE!

Photobucket

Mmmmm..."sweet to the soul and healing to the bones" I just love that visual!

In the spirit of sharing you are welcome to download this image here if you need the same inspiration I do! I think that's OK with Photobucket? Someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong here! This is my first attempt at a download like this. It should be all ready to go in 8x10 format, for your printing pleasure....

I put mine in an old, unused frame and have it out for us all to see.

May the Lord use my words to sweeten someone's precious soul and heal their weary bones!

Very nice! I post bible verses on my fridge each week, I love the idea of framing them instead. :)

You have a lovely blog! I especially love this, as my family started keeping bees this summer! I didn't know of this verse until now...

Cheers,

I'm new to your blog, found you through Melissa Phillips. What a beautiful home, we have similar taste in furniture. I love anything with bee's, not the real ones I'm allergic, lol. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
