Charm is Deceitful and Beauty is Vain Printable!

by June Fuentes on March 3, 2014 in Creativity, Homemaking

Today we have a guest post by Jessica:

I am not a decorator. Maybe it’s the fact that I live in a small house. Or perhaps it’s because I have brood a of little ones, but either way decorating is not my area of expertise.

Generally speaking, I like to keep things (relatively) clean and simple. I rotate toys and declutter like it’s going out of style.

I have discovered, however, that I do enjoy making printables (mainly of scripture) and hanging them on my children’s bedroom walls.

Besides, even though I might not enjoy decorating, my kids always get so excited when I make them something new to put in their rooms. It makes them feel treasured.

On the nights that my husband is working late, and can’t do Bible time with the kids, I read to my girls about the Proverbs 31 woman. There’s something so special about tucking my precious daughters in for the night and sharing this scripture with them. It’s such a wonderful reminder that we’re on this journey together.

Since they are so young (4 and 5), they have a lot of  parts memorized just from hearing it read so often. They are fascinated by the purple clothes and the scarlet house. They love hearing about how she makes her arms strong.

But perhaps our favorite part is when I read,”Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” It’s spurred on some sweet discussions, and even though I’m not sure they fully grasp the fact that outward beauty doesn’t last forever (they are only 4 and 5, after all!) They are slowly grasping the fact that loving and serving the Lord is far more important than anything this world might offer.

So, despite the fact that I stink at decorating, I thought it would be a wonderful reminder to hang this verse on their wall, that way we can always be reminded about what’s truly important.
