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:
Week 3, 2 Corinthians 3:18:
Week 4, Hebrews 10:19-23:
Week 5, Philippians 2:12-13:
Week 6, John 3:16:
Week 7, Matthew 22:37:
Week 8, John 13:34-35:
Week 9, 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!
