Plaques

A few years ago I stumbled upon one of these older metal plaques at a church rummage sale.

They were made by A.E. Mitchell Company or Zondervan Publishing during the 1920's and 1930's. They are light weight metal and are decorated with raised letters and floral designs. They are imprinted with various inspirational sayings or scripture on them.

This is the back:


Well that first plaque hung in the house for a while...that is until Hubby found out that they sell for a pretty penny of Ebay. So we decided to sell the one I bought at the church rummage sale. At the time I must have needed the extra money.
.
Since that time we have found others, all bought on Ebay, when we could get one for a reasonable price. Since I love bible scripture, I love hanging them around my home.


This is the latest addition and it is my favorite right now. I love what it says. Mark found it for me and bought it for me as a present. The words really speak to me right now as I go through some tough times.

Oh How True!!

God Bless,

  1. "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee". I love this passage and the beautiful pine needles and pinecones. I like knowing it probably comforted people long ago just like it comforts me today. I'm thankful these were made to endure just like their messages.

  2. A. E. Mitchell (1877-1964) was my late wife's grandfather. He was a Godly man who was a Bible teacher, missionary, and artist. His 6 children were in full-time Christian service in U.S.A. or in other countries. And his descendants have followed in his path. He and his wife Jennie founded Go Ye Fellowship (Pasadena, CA) and the plaque ministry helped support missionaries. mohawk1951@att.net
