Know Jesus and Make Him Known

Awhile back I heard the phrase "Know Jesus and make Him known" on a radio show.  It was from this devotional .  I loved the phrase as soon as I heard it.  Of course, my visual mind made a little picture and it reminded me of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" print.

I learned today the origins of that print date back to World War II.
Watch this video about the origins of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" print.

When I heard about the print being created during the war, I thought about the war we fight daily.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Ephesians 6:12

I decided to create a visual reminder that I now refer to as our family rules.

It was around Thanksgiving weekend, 2012 that a nine month old baby entered our home.  We have enjoyed watching him grow, progress and become an active toddler.  A few months ago, parental right were signed off/terminated.  We then began the process to adopt him.  Over the past couple weeks, I have felt such a greater emotional connected (yup, the attachment word) and it has been amazing.  It is  crazy how much he looks like Sam and Sydney.  He has the same skin tone as Sydney and similar hair to Sam.  Needless to say, Sam and Sydney are crazy in love with him.  We are so blessed to love him.  I pray that he has a strong identity as a child of God and will have a heart that seeks him early.  He loves his Bible story book I read to him every day.  He often goes into his room and starts looking for it. Actually, he calls most books Bibles because we read his Bible the most.  Prayers are already being answered. Praise God.

Below is a design I created for His room.
