I Am So Impatient!

I doodled this page into my calendar journal last week without the words.

This morning I found some words that I liked ok,
"No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow
you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying."  Unknown

That's true enough I guess but I don't like to compare myself with anyone else, ever, so I had to change it up a bit.

I started Weight Watchers 10 weeks ago and naturally I want it to go much much faster than it is so I need the constant reminder that at least I am past the first 30 pounds... I had to get past those to get to the next 30.... but I want it faster!

OH! almost forgot, the actual page still has no words on it.  This is a font I worked on this week, I just just used CorelDraw to lay the words on the picture of the doodle and saved it that way.  I'm not done with creating the font, I still have some uppercase letters, numbers and punctuation to finish... but I was ready to see what it was going to look like! .....  again with the no patience thing:-(

Proverbs 3: 5-6

This past Friday I shared the drawings of James that I did last year, both here and on Facebook.  One of my dear friends saw it on Facebook and asked me to do Proverbs 3:5-6.... she was curious what I would come up with.... Well, here ya go Sweet Margaret!

I just love doing this because it makes me meditate on the word and pray over the words.  Funny thing happened this time.  The first part, trust the Lord with all thine heart....I'm pretty sure that it means to trust him with all of your heart, but I saw it a little differently this time... Trust him to take care of ALL of your heart, that's a little different.... So, even though I think it probably means the other, I showed it this way because we are to do that too... Trust Him to take care of our hearts... broken, sad, loves, every part.  I thought about letting her hand Him the pieces of a broken heart but I forgot and drew it this way.

On the last part I thought about adding a street sign on the side of the road that said "Righteousness Path" or "The Right Path", but it would have had to have been too big in order to read, just know that's the path he is on... next to the still waters and green pastures. :-)

Anyway, I hope you "get" my little interpretation of each of the parts.

Have a great rest of it...

James Do-Over 2013 vs 2011

In June/July of 2011 I decided to draw the book of James, this was the results:

Well, in January of 2013 I decided to do them again just to see if I could do them any better... mainly because I was never really happy with chapters 1-3. 

I just found the journal I was drawing in last year and since I never posted the results I decided to do that today.  I did get a little better (I think):

It was easier to be a little more organized the second time because I could look at the first set and see the big picture.

Give it a go, it is so much fun!
