Well, we are still waiting for Atticus to arrive. So, I thought I'd write another post and then go out in the garden today to try and keep my mind off of it. I'm just so anxious and I'm a worry wart, I just want to get to the happy part where I'm holding him in my arms and were all together as a family taking pictures and enjoying a new life. But it will come, I know!
In the meantime, here are a few new Bible Journal pages and what God has been teaching me.
Here is a pre-printed verse I simply colored in with gel pens. This is a great verse to memorize. I've always loved the verse "But as for me and my house will will serve the Lord", so I highlighted it and added an "Amen" sticker.
This is a page I created myself with a variety of stickers over a gelato background. The story of the Israelites defeat as the result of Achan's sin really spoke to me in a personal way. It made me wonder how often we as Christians do not experience a certain victory we are praying for because of sin in our lives.
This is another page I created myself. I was completely blown away that Caleb had to wait over 40 years for a promise to come true. It made me think how impatient we are when we pray for something and do not see answers to our prayers immediately. I created the background with water colors, then added a bunch of stickers, my own hand writing, and washi tape.
I've been having a lot of fun with craft paint on my Bible pages. Once the paint is dry, it's so easy to draw on them and nothing shows up on the other side. In this page I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the verse Joshua 21:45. Every single promise God made to the Israelites came true! Wow! So I underlined that verse and added another "Amen!" sticker. The I added stickers and my own hand-writing to emphasize that verse.
These are pre-colored pages I had a blast coloring! The page on the left is the last chapter of the book of Joshua and the page on the right is the first chapter of the book of Judges. In the Inspire Bible they always have a beautiful illustration at the beginning of every new book.
I loved that they had one of my favorite verses so beautifully illustrated in the Inspire Bible. I had so much fun coloring it. I did the background with a mix of gelatos and water colors. The words were colored in with gel pens, and for the house I used colored pencils.
This page is so much prettier in real life. It was hard to get a good photo of it. The colors are much, much deeper. I chose these hues of yellows, oranges, and reds to represent the sun in the verse. I colored the entire page with water colors, then I went back and colored in all the words with gel pens. The column was done with pencils.'
I did this pre-printed image in pinks and reds to emphasize "Hearts". I then highlighted the specific verse in the text with deep pink, plus drew a heart around the word "Heart" and colored it in with a white gel pen. The background was done in gelatos and all gel pens were used for the words and large hearts. I love how God emphasized multiple times how the promises He made to the Israelites came true.
Another pre-printed image. I colored the yellow background with water colors then did all the words using gel pens.
And my last page is a pre-printed image colored with gel pens. I emphasized the word "Victory" by doing an ombre effect.
Have A Great Day! Hopefully I'll have baby pictures to share soon! Amy
