Easter {Chalkboard} Dining Room

Happy Palm Sunday!
I am enjoying my Dining Room chalkboard niche.

It's fun to change it from time to time,
especially during holidays or change of seasons.
I wanted to write my favorite Easter verse, but also wanted to keep the script simple so as not to distract from the meaning.

My handwriting is not the best, 
but I just began writing and tried to center it as best I could.
The dining room table is decorated. 
If you'd like to see how I built the tablescape, click here.
"When the Centurion and those with him
who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all
that had happened, they were terrified
and exclaimed, 'surely he was the Son of God!' "
Matthew 27:54

I think this verse is so very powerful,
mainly because the Centurion was a Roman.
He was appointed to guard Jesus while he hung on the cross,
so he witnessed the entire scene.

He witnessed the darkness that fell, the earthquake that hit,
 and Jesus crying out. 
 This Centurion made his own assessment
and speaks his claim..."Surely he was the Son of God!"
He surely is!!!

(I took these pics before leaving for treatment. Things are going well,
and I am excited for what is to come. Thank you again for your prayers!)

  5. What a lovely display. I think your handwriting is great, it's hard to write level, mine always has an uphill slant. I certainly wish the best for you, Janis.

  6. When I get a grown-up dining room like yours, I want to have a chalkboard niche just like yours! It rocks!

  7. What a great idea for that niche, Janis! It looks lovely and I like that you change up the writings you put there to go with the seasons/holidays. Your table is looking lovely as well!

  8. Simply gorgeous! Easter blessings to you, Patti

  10. Not sure how I missed this post, Janis; but, I am so glad that I am catching up now! What a beautiful verse for Easter! The chalkboard looks great in your dining room niche! Perfect use of the space!

  11. Having a chalkboard in home is a great idea. If I had one, I'd write down motivational quotes on it. :)
