"Take Me Deeper 2015"

I have been spending my time with estate sales, church commitments, my wonderful husband and I've been doing the "Take Me Deeper 2015" Project.  It seems as if blogging has taken a back seat. I’m hoping to improve on that (a promise I have made often) during 2015. I am scheduled to go to a Blog Conference in the fall and am looking forward to it. Until then, I will t.r.y. to get back into a blogging schedule.  

And to be really honest here – I have a new computer and the photo program is giving me FITS… But, you will be pleased to know, I haven’t thrown it.....  YET.

I thought I would share with you about "His Kingdom Come" and their project of “Take Me Deeper.”  His Kingdom Come is a website for people to come together and share their artwork while growing in their spiritual lives.

I am not an artist. If you remember a little over a year ago I tried my hand at Media Art – which I love. But it was kind of like playing the piano – some (ME)  are just not gifted in the arts!! But I did like the idea of Bible Journaling. With or without talent what I've discovered is that journaling a passage of scripture really helps me to meditate on it, to think about it more and so I find that I apply it more to my life.

So I’m going to share a bit with you to give you an idea of how fun and meaningful this is. (if you want to see some FABULOUS art work on these Bible verses take a look at His Kingdom Come website.) 

This is a Journaling Bible that I purchased on ebay. The margins are 2.5 inches wide.

Week 1, Romans 12:1-2:

Week 2, 2 Corinthians 12: 7-10:

2 Cor 12:7-10

Week 4, Hebrews 10:19-23:

Week 5, Philippians 2:12-13:

Philippians 2:12-13

Week 6, John 3:16:

Week 7, Matthew 22:37:

Matthew 22: 37

Week 8, John 13:34-35:

John 13: 34

Week 9, 2 Corinthians 5:17:

2 Corinthians 5:17
2 Corinthians 5:17

I've finished the first two months of the year! Looking forward to the rest of the year.

A dear friend of mine is doing a wonderful thing with her Journaling Bible. She has picked a verse for each grandchild, highlighted it, then in the wide margin has added a current picture of the child with their hand print over the page. It is beautiful and what a wonderful legacy for her grands!!

So many ideas!! Hope you will get some ideas and try them yourself and share them in the comment section of my blog! 

Happy Journaling!!
