Yes, I’m still here and yes, I’m still in Nursery. I was actually thinking of deleting the blog. I don’t how people find time for blogging. I have so much to do. But sometimes I’m working on something for Nursery or family history and think someone might find it useful.
I was working on the Nursery lesson for Sunday. It doesn’t take too much time anymore as most of the stuff is already done. So I have time for the extra stuff that I’ve always wanted to do. I thought I would make a sign about the purpose of Nursery as stated in the manual, “Behold Your Little Ones”. I think some people don’t understand what Nursery is and isn’t. This might help for those who are newly called to Nursery or just subbing for the day. It is definitely not a babysitting service. Maybe they should think up a different name for Nursery as the word “nursery” kind of implies that meaning. Anyway, it’s just black and white because I was printing on colored/patterned paper. I just got a frame from the Dollar Tree to display the sign. At the very least maybe it will inspire you to create your own 🙂
Here is the link to the printable: The Purpose of Nursery .doc or .pdf
Every man and every person who lives in this world wields an influence, whether for good or for evil. It is not what he says alone; it is not alone what he does. It is what he is. Every man, every person radiates what he or she really is. … It is what we are and what we radiate that affects the people around us.
As individuals, we must think nobler thoughts. We must not encourage vile thoughts or low aspirations. We shall radiate them if we do. If we think noble thoughts; if we encourage and cherish noble aspirations, there will be that radiation when we meet people, especially when we associate with them.
I really liked this quote by David O. McKay so wanted to put it in my scripture journal. I like pretty things and like putting quotes and stuff on journal cards or labels to glue in my journal. Some quotes are too long to write by hand onto a physical journal card so I wanted some digital ones where I cut copy and paste quotes.
I bought a pack of digital journal cards from Joyful Heart Designs at Creative Market. I like these because the file includes individual image pngs so you can just pick one card to use. It also has a PDF file of all the cards for printing.
I added the border while I was editing it in Paintshop. If you would like to print for yourself, just click on the image for the full-size.
I was reading verses 29-32 in Ephesians 4 tonight. This has actually been something on my mind that I felt I had been slipping on. I made a little card to post where I can see it. It’s some key points from verses 31 and 32. I didn’t write out the complete verse. This will be my focus for the week.
