Lessons from the Noke

One of my favorite habits that I got from my mom is to write notes, quotes, scripture, encouraging words, etc. in places that I will see them on a regular basis.

When I was in college I had a doorway that I covered with note cards. Each card had a bible verse for the week on it. It quickly filled up.

After college, I decorated the perimeter of my room with 8 x11 bubble letter verses.

Surrounding myself with this type of encouragement has been one of the best things that I have learned how to do.

The pictures here are of my parents' kitchen.

The front is covered written words, and the side is filled with family photos.

It flows out even from there to the inside of the cabinets and pantry doors. They are all covered with wonderful letters, poems, pictures, and truths from God.

I hope taking a picture of the cabinets open in not to invasive... Danielle did a great job organizing the bowls and glasses :)

Thank you Mom for teaching me how to wrap God's truth around me.

I miss your notes Traci!! You can send me some anytime you want, and I'll find a good spot for them. I still have some that you've given me in the past. Yay to Mishna for passing that on. When we're growing up we often try to reflect any likeness of our mothers, but hopefully the best parts of them will be absorbed any way :) I think they are!
