Happy Monday!! Before I get started I wanted to THANK YOU AGAIN for all your KIND words surrounding my Journaling Bible series. You have brought tears to my eyes with the stories you are telling me, I just can't express enough... keep reaching out ,... keep telling your stories ... you are an amazing community and I adore you!
Yesterday was Palm Sunday, and at our church that meant a family service complete with one of the cutest (ok ....her Mom thinks SO!) little 7 year old leading us in worship. I love family services and experiencing the service with my children. Since I had a happy little 7 year old snuggling me during the sermon I decided to soak that in and not take notes today. So I came home with an empty bible and empty sermon notes.
When this happens I usually take the overall theme, or highlight some of the word that really stood out to me. But today there was one thing that Pastor Chris said that really spoke to me. It was about perspective and how we need to look at other view points. This stood out to me because Katherine and I were just talking about this during the week. So how "odd" for those exact same words to come up during the sermon. I think looking at different situations from other's perspectives is amazingly important in relationships. It brings you to pause and think about your relationships and where you can improve.
I decided that since I had not taken notes, I would take the main point I took away from today as a title, and use allpha stickers to make a statement on the page. I made sure to keep the sermon notes even thought I hadn't use them because the had the bible verse Chris spoke about today, and I also use it to doodle out any words I may be using in my title work.
I wanted to use this large sticker at the bottom of my title but I didn't want the green leaf to cover the text in the bible. It is important to me that I can still read all the words. So I place a piece of cardstock just under the leaf section and then fussy cut around the sticker. This way the flower part I could use as a regular sticker but the leaf would be able to flip up and down if you needed to read the text under it.
And that was it! I added a little splash of Mister Huey and called it done! Another week, another sermon!
Remember if you want to share your images from your bible on my blog please let me know! :)
