Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendars: May 2011

With a new month comes a whole new batch of desktop wallpapers, lovingy crafted by some of the readers of this blog. They are all free for you to download, enjoy and install on your computer, iPad, iPhone or other device. Enjoy!

A few notes: 320 x 480 is for your iPhone; 1024 x 1024 is for your iPad; your desktop or laptop may take any of the other sizes depending on your monitor size and a host of other considerations.

Generally you set one of these are your wallpaper by clicking on the link to the image, then right-clicking on the image (once it’s open) and selecting “Set as Background,” “Set as Desktop Background,” or something similar.

Those Whose Hearts

Created by Eric Novak from Chicago, IL. The story of the prophet Hanani in 2 Chronicles is very short- basically he speaks God’s message, is thrown in prision and we don’t hear about him again until 1 Kings when his son is mentioned. However, Hanani’s words are a strong encouragment to the modern-day Christian.
