  1. Jamie, isn’t it wonderful how the Lord answers? Phyllis – beautiful! This can be interpreted so many, many ways in each of our lives…

  2. Wonderful idea! It is something I never would have thought of doing myself.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

  3. This is such a great idea Tricia! There also is an organization called Color-a-Smile that will accept colored pictures with your child’s name and age on it and then send it to people who could use some cheering up. The web address is if anyone is interested in checking them out.

  4. Lovely idea! Our local meals on wheels lets us pick up a stack of placemats to decorate the meals they send out. My two and four year olds love it!

  5. Oh my goodness! Border sheets! I used to do those when I was in school. 🙂

    Keep up the great ministry!
