And So It Began

mark chapter 4

March starts the book of St. Mark. Today was Chapter 4 in my reading through the Bible.

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare they way before thee. Mark 1:1-2

The book of St. Mark begins with John The Baptist (son of Zacharias and Elizabeth – cousin of Mary) baptizing Jesus.

And there came a voice from heaven, saying. Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.St (Mark 1:11)

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  Mark 4:39-40 KJV

I weep not with shabby girl

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. 🙂

Happy Wednesday,

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



My reading group took a break, and we don’t continue until next week when we’ll begin Numbers, but I don’t take a break from reading because I know me, and I’d most likely just laze it up, and I don’t want to get out of the habit of reading daily. So, I’m continuing with Romans and other scriptures. Here’s mine for today’s reading. Enjoy.

Hebrews 4 14-16

Still trying to fit in some fishing days before the weather turns totally against us:

Me and my captain

Some fishing scenery:


Not wanting to take my expensive camera on the boat, I used a small digital camera that I found at a thrift shop for $5.00 on this one. Not too bad.

I caught the most fish, but he takes off the catfish for me. Tried for Crappie, but no luck, just some bait stealers.

Next time, I’ll take a picture of the fish, but hubby wouldn’t get the camera, and I was busy catching all the fish. ~smiles~
