Bible Journaling | Grace

I took some notes from September last year to document a sermon on grace.

Grace is the greatest gift given to me, but certainly the hardest to understand. You know what? God doesn’t think like Greta thinks!I KNOW!, right?! Completely unreal. Cause if I were the earthly representative of God’s, I would keep lists of who did me wrong; I would refer back to the Naughty and Nice list when favors were…

Friends for the Journey

We’re all just walking each other home.

This Ram Dass quote is one of my favorites. It so simplistically describes what we are here to accomplish. It has been my experience that we are all both leaders and followers. We advise and we seek advice, depending on where we are on our life’s hike.

Sometimes I am the petulant child, going limp and dropping to the floor while kicking and crying.…

The Beatitudes

I am currently in a bible study at church, going through Matthew. I’ve always loved that Jesus went up into the mountains to talk with his disciples about the difficulties they would face and how they were to react to each circumstance.

Journaling Bible

I serendipitously ran into an article recently about bible journaling. My heart, immediately, jumped up and down and knew this was a culmination of many of my interests.

Bible study +
doodling +
art journaling…

I am excited for this project to grow and evolve and to share the journey with you.

I started this morning with Psalm 94:19

Do you ever feel like your mind is racing ahead to what needs to get done before tomorrow…or concentrating on securing plans for the weekend…or what you hope to be doing a year from now, five years from now, at retirement??? Yikes!

Sometimes I have to reel my mind back in and simply concentrate on the tasks before me today. Sometimes, I just need to do Today. 

This message is needed around my house. How about yours? #linkinprofile #scottiegirl #handlettering

Loving…this sign at the diner this morning.

Packing…for a quick trip back to Kansas City this weekend.

Listening…to the Pandora station: Wynton Marsalis – so good!

Archiving…my entire email inbox into a file to deal with later. I need a fresh start before getting woefully behind again!

Popping…some Pop Rocks Scott brought home to me earlier this week – as a fun surprise.

Stressing…a little over…
