10 Creative ideas to keep you happy while you’re stuck at home 🌼// ‘Caption This’ Contest!

Hi everyone! I’m back and this time with 10 creative ideas that you can test out while you are stuck at home. 😊

  • Write a haiku.
  • Write down ten things you’re thankful for on sticky notes, and stick them on the wall next to your bed.
  • Write a short fantasy story and read it to your younger siblings (if you have them🙂)
  • Memorize a short psalm.
  • Sew a pretty change purse by hand. Maybe even embroider your name on it!
  • Send a letter to an old friend. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope!
  • Take a picture of a bird. 🐦
  • Polish your church shoes. (Believe me–this is SO satisfying!)
  • Start learning a new language. (It’s more fun than you think!)
  • Give your mom a hug.♥️

What keeps you afloat while you’re stuck at home?

Now it’s time for something a little different–you could make this number eleven on the list, if you like.🙂 I’m going to put up some of my photography below, and you get to caption it!

A Blessing in Parting

Remember this as you journey on,

think of it while the day is long,

our loving Lord is always there,

to help you your troubles bear.

He’ll guide and show you,

the way that’s ever true,

through the darkness of your heart,

He will His tender grace impart.

Look ever to Him along the way,

and He’ll in evil ne’er let you stay,

when morning dawns upon your road,

you will with Him make your abode.

God willing we’ll meet again one day,

I’ll always pray that He’ll with you stay,

ever put your trust in Him,

and never in the prince of darkness grim.

In our Lord place all your faith,

and He’ll forever keep you safe,

behind each gloomy cloud,

comes the sun from it’s shroud.

Would I could walk with you!

But we’ll both share in life anew,

I trust at the end of the age,

we will in eternal life engage.

So hear this blessing from me now,

and remember to whom your knee does bow,

whether we meet on earth or in heaven,

our Lord will watch us here, as in heaven.
