Word(s) from My Sponsor May 15

Amelia graduated yesterday! (sound of two hands clapping)
happy dance

Here are verses I collected for Amelia’s college graduation.
They are secured in a vintage book called “Short Stories of Famous Women” that I found at a thrift shop. I unholstered the glue gun and hot glued an old letter press tag and a pinwheel on the front.

I put my graduation wish for her in the front and then on the next page added familiar and still important Bible verses that I have read or we have read together over the year . They are facing opposite of the Preface since graduation is a type of  Preface for her.

commencement Bible verses

The verses are:

James 1:25~ be a woman of action
Galatians 6:9~do not lose heart
Zephaniah 3:17~God will also quiet her with His love
1 Corinthians 10:13~she will never have more than she can handle
Exodus 14:14~she can be still and know God is with her

Amelia liked the book, especially the part about the idea of using the book since she loves books so much.

There are other pages in the book. I would love to have you make Bible Verse suggestions so I can include them.

  1. I say the girl is lucky to have you for her mama. Great idea. Love the cupcakes too. Two weeks from now we are going to celebrate our grandson’s 8th grade grad. These things come up too quickly…

  2. Shirley~ Your comment means a lot to me ! Thank you! And early congratulations to your grandson! All of the milestones are SO important to share! And having family around to share them is…well… like icing on the cupcake!

  3. What beautiful ideas. Helen – you are a very special Mom. Love the blessing you passed to your precious daughter.

  4. Thank you very much, Barbara! Here is another verse that is so appropriate for graduation:
    “God has given each of you some special abilities. Be sure to use them to help each other, passing on God’s many kind of blessing” (1 Peter 4:10 LB).
