Walk With Me
Walk with me darling. Walk with me at the beach. I could use some mother-daughter time. Some sunshine. Some warm weather. And a good friend. Let’s go for a walk together.
Remember to be true to yourself.
Remember to be true to yourself. Remember to keep realistic expectations of yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others expectations of you but to who you can be and should be in Christ.
When it feels hope is lost remember to pray and listen for the Holy Spirit’s guidance. When things seem unattainable remember all things are possible through Christ Jesus and you have not because you ask not.
Be A Pineapple
Be a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside.
Grow Old With Me
When I grow old, I want to do it with you by my side. God prepared my story long before I was born and he included you in my story. I am so thankful for a God who loves me so much to include such an amazing husband in my story. With you, my dear it makes our story a fairy tail with a fairy tail ending. He never promised it would be perfect and its not. But, it is close and that’s more than I could have wished. Thank you God for my husband and our time together in this life.
Ive missed you sweet girl. I’ve missed your big heart. Memories of summers and the last time I saw you fill my heart with joy. The way we laugh about nothing at all for hours on end, blesses my soul. We share the same querky spirit, love for Jesus, art, and books, querky spirit, faith, friendship, music, humor, and eyes. You have my heart daughter, my forever friend. Missing you and can’t wait to see you again.
TRUE LOVE IN MY
One of my favorite things to journal about is my love of my life. My second love (because if I didn’t love Jesus first I couldn’t love my husband with a love like Jesus). I love to use college, doodles, and other various artwork in my Moleskine journal. It allows my freedom to be as creative and free in my art as I like. I enjoy adding my own words, funny things we say to each other in our every day lives, and even prayers and bible verses. My Molskine is whatever I want it to be and I can be as free and creative as I want to be. It is my art journal and it is random in thought, design, and has a great purpose.its greatest purpose is therapy for promoting positivity for myself and others who may find a good word or inspire positivity through my art.
What did I learn from my first bible journal experience?
What did I learn?
I learned to relax and pray. I learned to meditate on hearing from the Holy Spirit while I worked on art with a talent he gave me. It was a great experience. I learned it doesn’t have to be perfect. The reason, the focus, and the whole point of my journaling bible was to have a deeper and more intimate experience with my Heavenly Father, My Creator. Most of all, I learned its not about perfection or the things I make but the quality time I spend as a form of worship while creating in time spent with Him.
And then, my very first entry;
What would I do different?
I thought I felt guilty at first for covering the pages. My initial thought and fear was confirmed by some people online who asked if I felt bad and made comments that they couldn’t and wouldn’t write on Gods words. Again, I prayed and felt in my heart that I wouldn’t intentionally hurt my Father. And then I was reminded condemnation doesn’t come from the Father but the enemy who comes to steal kill and destroy. He wants to destroy a good thing, a positive influence for other people, this message right now, and he fears that others might enjoy this same kind of prayer time and intimacy with The Father. Don’t listen to the negativity. Enjoy you time with God through your talents He has given you amd be close to Him.
I also keep a study bible I use only for my bible study which I keep a prayer journal with and I keep a small bible for underlining key verses that I carry to church and I have my art journaling bible which I don’t have to feel guilty for art as a form of worship. Enjoy freedom in your art worship and don’t allow the enemy to make you feel bad for enjoying your time with your Creator, the Father.
I love to mix my art journal with fun inspiring quotes, bible verses, and sometimes I add personal prayers to my art journal. Most of all I love adding color with various materials and some collage from old magazines. Most of the time I insert the date and add either something personal about my day or something I would like to use to encourage or inspire others like an inspirational quote. This particular page was made on a cool day in the early spring when I was in need of a warm vacation. It was officially declared spring and it snowed the same week here. Journaling with art helps promote good health and happiness, especially when winter seems to take longer than it should. What’s in your Molskine??
