Florida Homeschool Family Fun!

Family Guestbook

Guerra Family Guestbook :)

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,

for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

My hope is to have everyone that stops by our home and stays a while to sign their name and leave a short (or long) message in our guest book. What a priceless possession this will be to open those pages in ten or twenty years and see the handwriting of grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, missionaries, our children’s playmates and cousins.

You can go to town with this. Buy a gorgeous premade guestbook or simple scrapbook and add embellishments and pictures to the pages. I bought a composition notebook. I embellished the cover with varied scrapbbooking supplies. I am going to glue pictures in different places along the book. The pictures and embellishments will add to the fun and give you the visual of that special dinner or birthday party. You may even add cards and postcards that have also visited your family via mail box and bought a smile to your faces. Outline the hands of our new baby nephew. How about a stray cats or lost dog paw print that you took in for a few days. You may even choose to add petals of flowers bought by a friend. The book will become a touch and feel visual feast for you eyes and heart.

Thank you note came to visit us.

I have forgotten to ask some friends to sign our book a few times. Keep it on the coffee table or by your front door or foyer. There is no reason why you can’t write in what they said during their visit, who was visiting and the date. I bought a date stamp. I thought it would give it an old fashioned look. Ask your kids to remind you to give the guests the book and you’ll never forget again. Have family fun with it.

Now go make some memories!

Our first guest leaves some love

Here are some ideas for you:

Composition notebook
Store bought journal
Date stamp
Attach a ribbon with a pen for ease of use
Don’t wait until they are getting in the car
Take pictures
Add thank you cards, birthday cards, postcards or any special note

When your book is full tie a pretty ribbon around it and start another. Have a special dinner and prayer night with your family once a year and REMEMBER and PRAY for your friends and family.

Some beautiful scripture, poetry and quotes to add to your pages:

  1. 着替えを取得するには上の階奥の部屋、この事は突然彼自身が下の引き出しから取るために身をかがめていたが、スーの好みはため息をついた、モンクレール 店舗ほとんど空のクローゼットのドアに立って、今日の正午に移動されていたことを思い出した
    メンズシャツのうち、まだアンパック、シャネル ヘアゴム服を取り出す。
