Will add thankful for warm home as the weather has turned much colder this week and week-end. Love Fall, but a bit too cold this week. 40 degrees colder.

Still reading through the Bible, and enjoying the Journaling through the Bible. Now doing it on the pages of my Note Takers Bible. Some use an actual Journaling Bible that are one column and have a wider margin, but for now, I found this one locally with a price I could afford. 🙂
Love all that I’ve been learning about the different mediums for doing the journaling like the Gelatos, Watercolor Pencils, Embossing, etc. and my favorite is the glitter tubes that you find for about 99 cents at WalMart. They work great.
The reading for March is Mark if anyone wants to follow along. I’ll be journaling the scriptures, and if you read along in Mark, any comments would be fun to get your point of view on the Scripture as we head into the Resurrection.
Some of my journaling pages below:
This one below I did using some freebies from friends in a Facebook Group for Digital Journaling. The Doodles you can find on Tara’s site and the background is from Bernadette. The fence and scripture and element, I added.
This one below, I created for a theme of creation in the His Kingdom Come site. Wouldn’t it be fun to receive such an invitation to explore the beginnings with God and have him tour you through to the cross?
These are the tags that I’ve made so far for the ‘I AM’ theme with HKC.
Hope you enjoyed my bit of journaling that I’ve been working on. Hope you can stop back for the book of Mark.
Week three of the Advent theme with the group I’m following is JOY. As a child we have so much JOY when we anticipate Christmas. The belief that Santa will bring us delightful surprises. Same with our Faith. Jesus is a wonderful gift who will and always brings us delightful surprises as we travel through this earthly life. One surprise was the way he arrived (a babe born in a stable), and another unknown surprise at his birth was that he was sent to make a sacrifice that would give us unconditional forgiveness. All he asks is Love One Another.
God is peace, and if you let him, he will work in us a comfort and peace beyond understanding. Stay faithful and blameless awaiting the return of Jesus. Live in Love and Peace and enjoy the JOY that life brings.
Lord of Peace
God of Peace
A babe born for you and me
Merry Christmas week three.
We are in week two of Advent. Cannot believe how fast we have arrived to the month of December, let alone Christmas is only another week and few days away. Plus, this week the weather here in Ohio may reach 70 by the week-end? I’ll take it. Let’s me feel like I might be spending Christmas in California with my kids or somewhere South. lol However, the colder weather has promised to return next week. brrrrrrrrrrrr
This week as I share along with His Kingdom Come’s Advent, the theme is Love. God sent his son to forgive, and also to know that he wasn’t changing the commandments, but to add ‘LOVE ONE ANOTHER’. Wow, that doesn’t seem so hard now does it? But with the way things are lately, sometimes I wonder. My human nature sometimes just doesn’t feel much Love. I was taught that you never Hate, and if you even said that word when I was growing up, I probably found my mother in my face reminding me, we don’t hate. So when I’m not feeling much Love, I’m reminded by Scripture as well as my mom’s voice in my head. 🙂
I especially Love the season of Christmas or as some prefer the Holiday season because it does seem Love is more prevalent. Maybe because during this time, perhaps just perhaps, Jesus comes down just a bit further to be with us and spread the feeling of Love so that it generates from within us just a bit more than usual. After all, it is his Birthday so he might just want to feel a bit closer to his presents (us), and have us feel a bit closer to the giver of the present (God). I don’t know why, but I’ll just take the smiles as they come, the excuse me when shoved in a shopping line, or the warm Hello that people share at this time of year before we head back into the reality of January and a New Year approaching.
My page day 11, 10, 9 and 8 of LOVE Advent week:
Blessings, ~hugs ‘n giggles~

As we start the Advent Season, my prayer is that kindness shines throughout our world ~ there is always HOPE.
My hope is based on non other than Jesus Christ who forgives and loves me.
As we celebrate a babe is born…
I drew this.
Then I took a photo of this.
Then I put the flower drawing into the basket using Adobe Photoshop; added some scrapbooking elements from kits I either purchased or got free online, tweaked the hue/saturation so the flower blended to the background color, and ended up with this:
Then I used a script brush that I found on a site call French Kiss Textures (if you sign up for her site, she does offer some great freebies as well as kits for sale and tutorials) to add the script and I also used one of her backgrounds from French Kiss.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving
1 John 4:18
I’m in various Bible Journaling/Bible Reading groups that do such great scrapbook and/or digital pages. They do such great drawings so I’m dipping my pencil (as you might say) onto the canvas page to see if I can even draw more than a stick figure. So far, I’ve tried a couple of gals since I see lots of those used in pages. This one is my weeping girl since I was going for the eyes closed, and I wanted to add a quote (from me) about her weeping.
Hope you like it, and hopefully you’re not laughing too loudly at my first attempt at drawing a girl. I know…the pencil marks are messy. Will work on that. 🙂
It’s a sad world this week so I guess my gal could be weeping of sadness also, but we continue on with prayers to Paris and Jesus’ steady promises to guide.
Thanks for stopping by,
You also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 1:13 NIV
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in they seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
Ephesians 3: 14-15
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
For it is written, AS I LIVE, SAITH THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS TO GOD.
And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree
Have a blessed week ahead.
