OK all you Pinteresters out there… this post is for you.
I’ve been playing with Pinterest as I’ve had time, though over the last couple of weeks I haven’t had as much time as I would have liked. And a few weeks back, I got the fun idea to ask myself what it would look like if the P31 wife had Pinterest? I mean, all of us who use it now sure find it resourceful! We can share house ideas, clothing ideas, recipes, the possibilities are limitless. So, I decided to set up a board called “If the P31 Wife did Pinterest…” and started adding links to places and things and items that the Proverbs 31 Wife might have been interested in, all backed up with scripture.
Like these beautiful lamps for example:
”She sees that her profits are good, and her lamp never goes out at night.” ~ Proverbs 31:18
It’s just a fun thing to do. And I’ll be honest, I need some fun. This has been a stressful week. I’ve started my first class towards a Master’s in Christian Leadership, we are house hunting and my husband’s 91-year old grandmother has moved into the Horn household. (And if you think the third item has anything to do with the second item on that list… why yes, you’d be right. And just a side note – do you know what it’s like having 4 different generations living in the same house? Let me share just one tiny example – DINNER. Mamaw is perfectly happy with her can of Ensure. Nana and Papaw (my husband’s parents) sometimes just want a sandwich or a bowl of cereal. My husband and I want D-I-N-N-E-R – like an actual meal we cook. And our 10-year-old would be perfectly happy with McDonald’s. It’s enough to drive someone B-A-N-A-N-A-S.)
So… let’s have some fun. If you Pinterest, follow my board. Then come back here and share some links in the comments, along with scripture verses, of things you find online that you think the P31 wife would pin. (And for a fresh reminder, check out Proverbs 31:10-22).
Everyone who shares a link will be entered to win a signed copy of the book which I’ll give away on Sunday (and if we have a lot of ladies participating, I may give a few more, or maybe find some other fun things to give away too) and I hope to add a lot of your links to the Pinterest board (be sure to include your pintrest name/board so I can include that too)! And please have fun with it – don’t take it too seriously… looking forward to seeing what you find!
We’ll call it the P31 Online Scavenger Hunt – happy hunting!
UPDATE: And the fun keeps getting “funner!” as my son would say!
