Good evening y'all!!!!! I hope and pray that where ever y'all are tonight that you are warm and settled in for the evening. We are expecting an arctic blast in my neck of the woods that could bring some precip in the form of snow and lots of frigid temps. At 9:30 pm it is 19* here. So, check on your elderly neighbors and bundle up and stay inside if at all possible. The upper North Eastern US is being battered hard by all the snow. I have a friend up there and she has said roofs have started to collapse. So, while we can be thankful we won't get 7 feet of snow, we sure need to being praying for those that are being pounded over and over. Take care my friends, and know prayers of safety are heaven bound.
One of the things that a precious sister in Christ and I have started this year is Bible Art Journaling. We are each others cheer leader, cheering each other on to do more and more. As I have progressed and put my pieces in my Bible, I decided I wanted to share mine with all of y'all. Just bare in mind that mine is not all that good. Just want to share with y'all and maybe give you ideas of how you can do your own art. As a general rule, the art is actually done on the page. I'm not comfortable enough yet to do mine directly on the Bible page so.....I modified it to suit my own needs.
Here's what I do. I got a tablet of tracing paper. The size is 9x12 inches. I cut the sheets down to 4.5x6 inches, giving me four small sheets from one large sheet. It is just about as thin as a page in my bible and I use washi tape to put it on the page that the passage is from. With it being tracing paper, if I need to get a basic shape of something, it's no problem to do that. I have only used a prompt on one of my bible art pages. It is the one with the lion on it. I just got the basic shape of the face and then went from there and finished the drawing. I may go back and re-do that one when I feel I can draw it on my own. The lion will be in the next upload of my Bible Art. But, anyway, I have a few I want to share with you and I hope you enjoy them. They are a true labor of love and a piece of my heart.
Well, there you have it. This is some of the first ones I have finished. I have about 5 more and will get them up soon. And hope to do many more in the days, weeks, and months to come. I hope if you haven't yet tried this, that you will give it a try. You don't have to show it on your blog. You don't have to show it to anyone. It's just a way of helping soak in the Word of God. It's not about being the best artist out there. It's just giving what you have to God and spending time with Him while you are being creative. Your creativity came from Him after all. So do it, and enjoy it and let Him direct you in it. You won't regret it.
Since today is Valentines Day, I have a special Valentine to share with all my favorite people; all of Y'all. This is a special Valentine from God to us. Thank you God that You "so loved" us enough to give us the best that You had to give!
That's it for the night. I hope y'all enjoyed what you seen here. I do love it when you leave me a note. Take care, be safe and stay warm.
Ladybug, sweetpea loves you bunches! Stay warm!
Good night y'all, God love's y'all and so do I!!! hugs, Patty
