Today's Scripture

Monday, November 19, 2012


OK, I'm back.... I have really had a hard time acting like "this is just another day".  The election results have about messed me up!  How in the world do I go about thinking and doing like I did before the election???  

YES, I KNOW "God is still in control"

.... But THAT is exactly what unnerves me!  We are about to see God's JUDGEMENT on this nation like never before!  All you have to do is read the Old Testament to know that when a nation  rejects Him and is disobedient THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY!!!  and I'm afraid that 

"we got the king we deserve".

So, with all that in mind, I have a new urgency to get as much of the Word down in my heart as possible!

One of the things that disturbs me a little bit about Pinterest is that lots and lots of people pin the "feel good" scriptures.  On the surface that seems like a great thing.... get that WORD out there!  BUT...thing is, a lot of the time that is all people ever read... the "feel good" scriptures!  So they don't really know God at all, they only know the "Gift Giver" side, not the "correction/judgement" side.  It really amazes me the "church going" people that can quote SOME of the Word but are CLUELESS about what the REST of the Bible says!


One of the things I planned to do in 2013 was read the Bible through again, but this time draw as I go.  But, I suddenly feel an urgency to START NOW!  There is no time to waste, I have to get focused!

So, I have created a new journal for myself

I found a 1 year reading plan that says if you read 3 chapters a day and 5 chapters on Sunday you can read the Bible through in a year.  In all honesty, I've never actually been able to "stick with it" doing it that way.  When I go that slow I tend to go into "study" mode instead of "reading" mode.  I know, study is a good thing... but I never get out of Genesis!  I need to read faster if I ever hope to get through cover to cover.... that's why I read my first "week" this weekend.

One thing I MIGHT do though is skip around.... and I can do that with the way I set the journal up.  There are 52 pages (times 2 if you count the blank page) with 23 chapters per page.  I put a column for the date read, on listing the chapters to read in a day then a column to put a sentence about what happened in the chapter. (not enough space!)  

The right side is completely blank... ready for whatever happens.  If I decide to read Luke this week I can, BUT I have to complete at least one "page of chapters" a week and have EVERYTHING done by the end of 2013 (sooner I hope)
Here you go... week one ... can you "read it"?

There is A LOT that happens in Genesis Chapters 1 - 23!!  I have a feeling that there will be some pages that are FULL of pictures, like this one, but other's may just be key scriptures...because not all scriptures bring a picture to mind.  Who knows....we shall see!

For our nation, for our future, for all the the folks that are CLEARLY LOST and need to find Jesus!

See How It Grows.

Tonight I am listening to my Kindle read the third book of "The Hunger Games" my hands are free to draw.  I've listened to the whole book today, I like that better than actual reading because ... well... my hands are free!  My hands like to stay busy and there's not much you can do while actually "READING" a book, ya know?

I thought I would show you a couple of the frames from my doodle book that I finished tonight...  I know they are "finished" because there is no more blank space to fill... I may color them later, maybe, time will tell...

The next one just kept growing.  I had no clue where I was going when I started.

It started with the curtain rod on the top, then the curtains just grew.  I should have looked for an example but I didn't bother so the folds don't really look real ... should have found an example!

Then I decided to put a bookshelf and found some shelves on one of my pins....and then the girl sitting on the window seat (another pin, one of the girl sitting on a bed...and you can see all of her, mine is partially hidden behind the curtain) ... So, all total I was able to pull inspiration from three different pins.  Seeeeeee.... it's IMPORTANT that I sit and scour over pinterest!  It keeps me creative! 

And here this one is, in context... still plenty to be done on the page... not too sure what yet ???

I really do recommend this little exercise if you are intimidated by doodling!  It is great practice!  Another thing I really like about it is that I tend to get bored really quickly so doing it this way allows me to jump around from page to page and do little bits and pieces here and there without the stress of having to FINISH IT!  I'm not sure why but Finishing things has always been an issue for me!  My whole life I will leave projects half done.... heck, I will even leave ONE DISH in the sink when washing them!  WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?! ???

Here ya go, an example of jumping around... Yesterday I mentioned I wasn't crazy about the frame with the big smile, there was too much white space, so today I decided to make it a cloud

I also finished putting the dots on the wire frame and put some bushes behind the chickens... that one will definitely get more of something ... when I figure it out.

OH! Here's a couple other things I did today...I have another small craft show coming up next week so I'm back at all that again.  I have plenty left from last week but you can never have too much right?
This was today's scripture on Bible Gateway ... one of my favorites "I WAS CHOSEN" so I wanted to do it...

It's a bit deceptive because the one on the left is 8"x10" the one on the right is 4"x4". :-)
