icon_redface.gif to ask...but I have to write scripture on a cake for tomorrow. Cake is 11x15. Made fondant/gumpaste leaves to go in top left and bottom right corners. Need to write
"To walk in His ways, to love the Lord and to serve God with your whole heart." Deuteronomy 10:12
I thought I was decent at grammar until things like this pop up! icon_lol.gif Would appreciate any suggestions!!!
TIA!

not sure exactly what you're looking for, but if you're looking for where to break it up so you can write it in several lines, here's what I would do....

"....to walk in His ways ,
to love the Lord and to serve God with your whole heart"
.....Deuteronomy 10:12

not sure if that's what you're looking for, but I hope it helps.

Yes! That's exactly what I'm looking for icon_smile.gif I wanted to write it big enough to read easily, but wasn't sure where to break it up...

"To walk in His ways, to love the Lord
and to serve God with your whole heart."
Deuteronomy 10:12
Is that OK??? Or can you not break it at the word "and"?

Either way works fine. It's probably more a matter of what fits best on the cake. Your way looks better distributed.

yes, can break at an AND

it is a conjunction after all and there by links two different parts --

think of it as the tongue that sticks out on a trailer and lets you hook the trailer to the truck.

so, the tongue goes with the trailer when they split --

that's going to look just fine!

(after all -- your hand writing has to be far far far far better than mine!)

Thanks so much for your help! I'm great at second guessing myself!
