Journaling Bible: A Wise Woman

I'm lucky to have a wonderful sister in law, the bonus: she's a Pastor. So during many of our heart to heart chats she will throw in a bible verse to encourage me. 

This was one of the many that she shared with me, and it's never left my mind:

So, thank you Elizabeth for your encouraging words and support! 

For this, I used a rubberstamp for owls, letter stickers, and my Pilot Precise v5 pen in black. The Kraft tabs are by The Paper Studio. 

Have a blessed Wednesday!!!

Journaling Bible: The Lord is my Light....

and my Salvation, Whom Shall I Fear? Doesn't this verse just bring you comfort!? 

I find that giving it all over to God brings me peace and comfort. This verse is a constant reminder that God has everything under control. 

I've had some people ask me to list the products that I use. My problem is, these are older products that I have had in my scrapbooking stash! So most are out of packaging. 
I can say I use craft chalks, letter stickers, free writing w/ my Pilot Precise V5 pens, 
and cardstock scraps. 

Have a blessed Tuesday!!!

Journaling Bible: Cast Your Burdens

One more post before bedtime. Poor hubby had to work late tonight, so that gave me some one on one time with God. 
I love this verse: Psalm 55:22 "Cast Your Burden on the Lord, and He will Sustain You, He will never permit the righteous to be moved!"
How awesome is that?! 

On this page, I used a rubber stamp by The Greeting Farm, don't you just feel like her sometimes?!
I used Copics to color her in, and a black Fine Point Sharpie to write the verse and to outline my journaling. The tab at the top was handmade with some scrapbooking scraps by Basic Grey.


Meet our Rescue Dogs

Good Monday to you! I'd like you meet our 2 rescue dogs. We've had them a little over  a week. They were thrown along a busy country road intersection. By the time we got to them, we estimate they had been there for about a week. 
The brown dog had been hit by car/truck at some time, and will need medical attention to tend to his leg. 
The white dog was in dire need of a grooming. His fur was severely matted and his nails were so long!
Both were covered in fleas. 

The Capture: We had to lure them closer to us, and gain their trust. They were hungry, thirsty and scared.
The brown dog was easier to catch, then the little white one. Both are males, not yet  neutered.
We had to use our black poodle, Bella, to lure the little white poodle over to us. He was curious about her, so it took us about 30 mins to gain his trust and catch him.

Both were taken to a local shelter, but because she is extremely filled to capacity, we agreed to foster them until they are well enough to find permanent loving homes.
Judy Bunn, of Judy's Ark gave them a look over, some shots and some grooming. 

HE did not enjoy this at ALL!!! He had never been groomed and this was traumatic for him, no matter how gentle we tried being with him. 

Here he is after a good groom from head to toe, this service was donated by Ginna Quinn of Fresh and Clean Dog Grooming. She donated her time and services to get him all handsome looking. He looks and feels much better!!!

And this is him relaxing this weekend. He doesn't have a name yet, he is about 1 to 1 1/2 years old and as sweet and playful as he can be!

The brown dog is under a year old, but spends his day resting due to his leg hurting. He will be seen by the vet this week. 
Hopefully these 2 boys will be adopted out together, since they are so close to eachother. When one is not around, the other howls until they are reunited. Hope they get a good, loving home soon.

Check back later this week for their update!

Thanks for visiting. 
Have a great day!

Journaling Bible: Draw Near to God

Happy Monday!!! I don't particularly care for Mondays, because for me, it means back to work, but hey...each new day is a blessing from God. 
Today I'm using James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Often in times of trouble we seem to pull away from God, let us remember, that the closer we get to Him, the closer He will get to US! 

Here is my entry for today:

In today's post, as well as yesterday's I used these vellum quote overlays. I found them in my scrapbooking stash. I love when I rediscover things I had forgotten about. NO shopping needed!

Have a Wonderful Monday!!
God Bless You!

Journaling Bible: We Walk by Faith

I have this sign in my bathroom that says "For we walk by Faith, not by Sight" 2 Cor. 5:7. I love this verse because it's a daily reminder to give it all to God. It's probaby easier said than done, but sometimes I have to remind myself to stop looking at situations and just have Faith that God has it all under control. 

If you enjoy these posts, you will be inspired by a group on Facebook:
Journaling Bible Community. 

Hope your Sunday was a blessed one!

Journaling Bible: John 3:16

This is a verse that almost everyone knows;
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son...." Can you imagine this? His love was so great for us that He gave his ONLY Son. Praise God for His love and forgiveness!!!! 

It was so wonderful being off yesterday. 
Today it's back to work!!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!

Jeremiah 33:3 'CALL ON ME"

This is one of my favorite bible verses: Jeremiah 33:3, "Call on Me and I will show you Great and Mighty things which you have not seen before". Only God can do this! Call on Him and only HE can show you things you would have never imagined!!! 

Have a wonderful Labor Day!!

On this, I used Washi Tape, "Prepare to be Amazed" is a clear rubberstamp. I did away w/ packaging so I'm not sure who makes this. "great" are letter stickers and the Red letters are rub-ons by Doodlebug Designs...they gave me grief. I love rub-ons but some are more stubborn or flimsy, depending on their mood. :)
