Verse of the Week

There are so many wonderful scriptures in the Bible.  It's one of the few books that you can put down, open up to anywhere among the many pages and find a passage that seems to speak to you directly. When you are down, when you are depressed, when you are happy, when you are celebrating:  there is always something among those pages that fits your life perfectly.  And sometimes, memories are associated with particular verses.  Verses you might not have thought about in a while will come to revisit you and you will remember a very particular memory that you associate with that verse.

That happened to be tonight.

Last week, my friend Lisa over at Chickens, Bunnies, and Homeschool linked up with a verse from the book of Isaiah.  It was one of my favorite verse when I was a child and attending Sunday school but I hadn't thought of it in a while.

"Come now, let us settle the matter," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."
  Isaiah 1:18

Back when I still attended Sunday school, I remember doing a craft to associate with this verse. It was a picture that we colored a cross with a red crayon and then we were given a piece of red film to place over the picture.  When we did so, the red colors somehow cancelled each other out making the red cross in the picture appear white.

I might be wrong about the exact specifics of the craft, as that was nearly 35 years ago but I will never forget the red turning white and knowing that the blood of Christ had the power to make such a strong color as scarlet red turn snow white.

So, hopefully Lisa doesn't mind me stealing her verse for this week :) (Actually, it's her son's verse as he's memorizing them for his dedication) but when I saw it and had such a wonderful memory, I knew that God was telling me I needed to revisit this particular verse myself. .

And if anyone happens to know how to do the craft I'm talking about, please, leave me a comment about it. I would love to do it with my kids if I could remember the exacts of it..
