Adventures in Bible art & journaling :: Everywhere that man can be...God is present there

Bible Art & Journaling

The idea for the art on this Bible page was prompted by the song, "I Sing the Mighty Power of God".  Too often I just go about my day with my mind on my tasks and getting distracted by situations that arise, but I want to intentionally focus on this idea that God is always with us...everywhere...in every situation...all the time. {Journaling says: "Everywhere that man can be, You, God, are present there."} I thought this idea went well with David's words in Psalm 27, so that is where I chose to put it in my Bible. I'm going to...

Adventures in Bible art & journaling :: The Lord Will Provide

Bible Art & Journaling

The idea for this page was sparked by a conversation a couple weeks ago - during a time when our church family gets together and shares some of the highs and lows of the week as well as where we saw God show up. There were a couple of people that night that talked about how they had experiences or come to a clearer understanding of God always being there for us, even when we might not see it.  {Journaling says: "Even when we don't understand how...the Lord will provide."} The story in Genesis 22 is one that talks about...

Adventures in Bible art & journaling :: Abide With Me

Bible Art & Journaling

I am trying to get back in the swing of Bible journaling, and this page is my "comeback": I made a weave of washi tape, gave it a little layer of paint to stamp on, and then stamped and did some quick coloring. It was a fairly simple approach, but has kept this idea ("Abide With Me") bouncing around in my head for weeks...which is why I love Bible art & journaling so much.  Have a great day!   Supplies: Bible: Zondervan (NIV Holy Bible, Journal Edition); Stamps: Ink Blot Shop, LLC (Floral Frenzy, Chunky Alphabet (Solid)); Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Outline...

Fall Napkin Placecards

Ooooh...isn't it getting beautiful outside? The leaves are changing colors and the fall weather is finally starting to break through the heat. When I think of fall...I think of food. (Or maybe I just always think of food.) And what is a good meal without some cute decor to spruce up the table? Today I wanted to share these cute napkin ties that double as placecards for a fall meal: As I was walking through a craft store, those giant wooden buttons just screamed at me to make something with them, and I think they are the perfect way to...
