As usual when I start reading the Bible from the beginning, I can't get past Exodus. I LOVE EXODUS! (I think I've said that before)
I've been meditating a lot on the 10 Commandments and how far off we are from it now so I created a Pinterest Board and I think that I'm going to start a "series" on the 10 Commandments.
Challenge: How many ways I can show them? Here is something I did last night:
Has anyone noticed how upset people are right now about the possibility of the government taking away their guns? I have...and I find myself just as upset about it....no, I don't own a gun, don't want one, but to be told I can't have it makes me a little crazy. But, that isn't my point here... my point here is that I wish there were as many people as upset and vocal about the government forcing the 10 Commandments out. That makes me REALLY CRAZY! I've been thinking about that a lot lately...so my answer to that is to put it everywhere I have control over.... hence the list to the right >>>
Another thing I've decided to do is make A BUNCH of 4 x 4 canvases and pass them out to anyone and everyone...waiters, mailman, store clerk, whoever! But rather than being "in your face" with it I decided to say something on the front that I think is a "good word" but not controversial... but, I am putting the 10 Commandments on the back as a liner. Here is my prototype:
Wondering why the number 384? :-) They sell them in packs of 24 and I bought as many as I had to to get the next price break...I'm all about price breaks.
Here is what I ordered from Dick Blick to get the ball rolling....
|07015-1044||DB ECONO CANVS PANEL - 4INX4IN 24/PK||$2.51||16||$40.16|
|19900-1129||SHARPIE BRUSH MARKER - ASSRTD 12/SET||$15.26||1||$15.26|
|21383-0089||SHARPIE CHISEL TIP - 8 COLOR SET||$7.05||2||$14.10|
|21383-2020||SHARPIE CHISEL TIP - BLACK||$.95||12||$11.40|
I know, its a bit of overkill on the markers, but I was going for the the price break AND I don't know how many it will take for that many canvases!
Let me know if you want to do something like this and I'll send you the 10 Commandments liner file.
I get the order tomorrow, so excited.
The 10 Commandments... NO, they can't take THAT away from me!
I would LOVE more ideas/help for getting it out there.
