Do you ever look at your calendar and marvel at the order and symmetry of all those neat little boxes, lined up in precise rows of seven? If your life is anything like mine, your days could be better represented by messy ink blots of various colors and size. (Or perhaps just stains of the various foods that have been spilled in my kitchen over the month!)
My life rarely passes with the order and precision I desire. But it does keep on passing. And a few weeks ago, I hit a special milestone: It was the first birthday of my blog! It’s hard to believe, but I’ve been typing my thoughts away and throwing free printables out on the blog for more than a year now.
A lot of messy, beautiful, and tiring life has happened along the way. But God’s been faithful every step of the way.
I don’t usually get excited about statistics and graphs, but at the end of my first blogging year, the numbers made one thing abundantly clear to me: You guys like free Scripture cards! So to celebrate More Like Grace’s birthday, I decided to make a brand-new set, featuring some of my favorite verses that remind me of God’s faithfulness thru every chaotic day of the year.
And here’s what I’m especially excited about: I know you guys will be putting these to good use. During this past year, it’s been such a joy to read comments and messages about the special ways you’ve all been using my first set of Scripture cards. I’ve heard from readers who used them as part of care packs for foster kids. Women who handed them out to members of their Bible study class. Others who used them in baskets for shut-ins or hospitalized friends.
So when it came to deciding what I should create to celebrate the blog’s first birthday, there was really no question to ask: I wanted to craft a new set of Scripture cards that you can use to keep spreading God’s love and grace around.
Of course, life happened. A polar vortex collaborated with Lake Michigan to dump heaps of lake-effect snow on our region, causing more than a week of snow days and cooped up kids. A few technical issues cropped up to deal with for the blog. And all my perfect plans for those perfect little boxes on the calendar got completely tossed out the window.
But I’m so happy to announce that I’ve finally finished the new set of free printable Scripture cards, and I’m celebrating a very belated blog birthday by releasing them today. Just like the first set, I made them in three different sizes so you can print the ones that will best suit your needs.
