Today's Scripture

Ephesians 6:8

I love this scripture... 

There were two goals with this one today.  First, I wanted to do something like this...only better.  I see so many BEAUTIFUL layouts of words and I keep saying I want to do that!... but, I have no clue where to even begin learning how to do it well.  I can tell that it takes a LOT of will power to practice and be patience enough to go slow and have a perfectionistic (sp?, is it even a word?!) type of personality and none of that describes me...AT ALL!  I do something once and I'm about ready to move on to the next thing...I guess that's why I doodle ???  

But, you know what, I have to start somewhere, so I just made this up as I went.  All the mistakes just scream out at me but something happens when I get a black marker in my hand.  Its like it has a mind of its own!...and straight isn't in its vocabulary!!!  ARGH!!!

It started with this:

then it went to this:

Another reason I wanted to do the scripture is that I am "a giver", I LOVE GIVING... but I am a lousy receiver.  Not too sure why that is.... BUT, right now the Lord has me practicing receiving and it is a TOUGH, TOUGH lesson for me!  But I have got to snap out of it in order to move on to the next lesson, one with more eternal value, ya know?  Anyway, I want to give something to those that are blessing me now and I think this scripture will be perfect....when I get it written perfectly that is!  So, I guess I will have to practice...and take my time after all huh?

later.... after saying all that ^ up there, I decided the best way to get it right was to actually SEE what I was trying to create so I went back and typed the bottom two lines using a TTF I wanted, when I do it again, I'll do better just because I had the letters all wrong!  That's what happens when you just try to do it out of your head while watching a movie downstairs!
