As For Me & My House {My first Review!}

Joshua 24:15 "But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord."

So I love, love this verse! When I saw that this was the theme for the May specials in the (in)courage shop at Dayspring, I was so excited, especially when I saw that they were giving bloggers the chance to review one of the products. Have you checked out the (in)courage blog and shop before? I subscribe to their daily emails of blog posts, and it is truly one of my favorite emails to get every day~ loaded with encouragement and great writing from bunches of different contributors.

I received the As for Me and My Household Charcoal 5x7 frame, and I sincerely love it! It is much bigger than I expected (I know, the site gives dimensions, but I'm one of those who just needs to see it...). I also really like the texture on the charcoal part. it's hard to see in the pictures, but the finish almost looks brushed.  After a little debate, I decided to put it on the wall in our kitchen where we will see it every time we sit down for a meal or fly through on the way to somewhere else. Deciding which picture to put in was the hardest part! I've also intentionally placed it off-center above my new (to me) buffet because I have an idea about some sconces or iron thing-a-ma-jigs on the right, but that will have to wait.

The kitchen is definitely the most used space in our house, and we can always use this reminder. I've always loved the first part of this verse that says 'Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve'. It reminds me that we get to choose to serve Him and need to be intentional about living this way... How awesome that we serve a God who isn't forcing us into some sort of slavery, but rather He lovingly shows Himself to us and allows us to willingly follow Him.
