The finished product

Here is the painting that I did for Eden's room. I wish I could take the creative credit for this, yet I cannot. Kim @ Lifesong posted a picture of her daughter's room and I really liked I copied the idea.

I had asked Ron to help me come up with a good verse to put around the border. We came up with ideas like 'do all things without complaint' but thought that maybe we should have something a little more encouraging. This week in my bible study the verse just popped out and screamed that it would be perfect for Eden.

"And this is my prayer: that your love will abound more and more in knowledge and depth and insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Jesus Christ filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Christ." Phillipians 1:9-11

That is really the prayer of my heart for all my kiddos, but it fit perfectly for this project. I would like to do something similar for each of the kids claiming an individual verse for each of them.

Gorgeous! Very creative you are. It is absolutely a perfect verse. I am praying for verses for all my kids right now too. You have really inspired me to claim a promise of scripture for each of them. Great idea!!!

You are such an encourager to me and you don't even know it! It's amazing how you painting a verse for Eden can be encouragement, but it is. Thanks for being who you are.
