That's all I'm asking from You
Just give me the strength
What I have to do
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today,
One day at a time.
In addition to buying materials for making my own chalkboards, I also purchased a large square chalkboard with a vintage distressed off white frame. The black area is about 18" by 18", and I marked white guidelines for my lettering that I erased later. This board surface is actually a little too slick for my tastes, and it was a challenge to lay thicker layers of color on it. I made the mistake of blowing on my design, and it scattered all over the place. I cleaned up the smudgy areas with a damp paper towel.
I put this piece on a tall cabinet in my front hallway, along with some coordinating ceramic birds also from Michaels. That's the start of my spring decorating! (Confession: Just last week I finally put away the Christmas angel and village that had been in that same spot for three months...)
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:33-34
