Boundary Lines

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places
Psalm 16:6

Yesterday, our pastor used this great verse to remind us that God's commands are for our benefit. His boundaries are set in place to keep us safe and show His great love for us. We so often fight against what we perceive as constraints...rules that seem to be created to cause us frustration. Because of His deep love for us he places rules in our lives so that we can experience joy, happiness, and a life rich with blessings.

I found this cute Family Rules decorated canvas at The Pleated Poppy. My first thoughts were that it was sooo cute and looked like something even "not so into crafts" people would give a try. I was a bit disappointed because I don't have little kidlets at my house and I don't think that my husband would think it was "cute" to post family rules at this stage of the game but after yesterday's sermon I think it would be a great idea to make one with God's rules listed......rules that have fallen in pleasant places!

Amanda and I have been busy getting ready for The Mad Hatter Vintage Market being held this Friday and Saturday so I haven't had time for personal projects but this one will be first in line after the show!

You can find very detailed directions to make your own Family Rules canvas at The Pleated Poppy.


  1. I remember seeing that too...very cute! I agree about the rules..they are there for our happiness...obedience is a wonderful thing :D

  2. How funny, Cindy! I just saw this project this morning and was thinking what a great idea for a fun fall indoor project!
