Back to School Count Down!

We count down events around here based on how many sleeps we have until the big day.  School is just 8 sleeps away!  Today I made a count down chain to help us get ready for the 1st day of School!  
Count Down!
Every night we will tear off a piece of the chain.  I have put a verse on the back of each one for us to read and talk about how it relates to school.  Here are the verses I am using, if you'd like to do the same!
  • 8 - Psalm 56:3 - When I'm afraid I will trust in God.
  • 7 - Proverbs 17:17 - A friend loves at all times.
  • 6 - Romans 15:13a - May God fill you with joy and peace as you trust in him.
  • 5 - Psalm 73:22 - I am always with you.  You hold me by your right hand.
  • 4 - Philippians 2:14 - Do everything without complaining or grumbling.
  • 3 - Philippians 4:6-7 - Do not be anxious about anything.  Pray about everything and the peace of God will guard your hearts.
  • 2 - Philippians 4:8 - Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things.
  • 1 - Psalm 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God.
Note: Many of theses verses are NIV or ESV... If you see one that doesn't line up with that, it's a KF (Kristen Franklin) summary to better help our little ones with some of the wordiness or terminology.  :)
