With Valentine just around the corner I thought I would share this passage and page today
1 John 3 : 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth ….
Meaning – Don’t make loving promises with your tongue that don’t come true in reality. If you say you are going to come to help, come. The promise is encouraging, and therefore loving. But all that encouragement dies when you don’t show up. Tell the truth. Love in truth . Love is powerful .
God is greater than our heart and knows the truth of our heart in any language…… Lisa
So my page is the language of Love :
In my household and in many love is spoken in many different languages. But the meaning and emotions are the same. So Today’s page is dedicated to love in many different ways – from English – to Greek to Hebrew to Chinese’s its the language of truth and heart. This page is done in a pastel wash with gold hearts and highlights with the word Love written in many languages . Enjoy and have a blessed day …….. Lisa

My devotional journal :
Wherever you do,do it enthusiastically,as something done for the Lord and not for man. Colossi ans 3 :28
This implies the ideas of enthusiasm and passion. Demonstrating a good work attitude makes a tremendous difference in one’s personal life and in our influence on others. In daily work,chores or prayers give thanks to the Lord,
My Bible planner :
My weekly bible verse ,prayer list and bible study.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Without a doubt, this is a verse that was given to bring peace to those who love the Lord. FEAR THOU NOT – This verse is so simple in its meaning, and it offers great comfort to those going through difficult times FOR I AM WITH THEE – This is the reason why we should not be afraid. God was their protector (and He is certainly ours WILL UPHOLD THEE WITH THE RIGHT HAND OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS – The right hand speaks of strength (most people are right-handed).
Bible passage today :
The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
We have all felt fear in something But with the Lords light to lead the way you have strength to overcome. I used the below gelato to color my page and bible stickers I had.

This week I picked up an old hobby of mine after finding a kit at Barnes & Nobles. Calligraphy . I had once taken a glass back in high school and decided I would like to explore it again. The kit came with the pens,paper and instructions and in a little while I was practicing away.
Do you have an old hobby or craft you no longer do? Have you tried it again maybe combining it with something else?
The perfect thing for my Words of Faith Sunday bible verses. These two cards feature verses from the Book of Exodus . That I hand lettered the verses and decorated the cards. Enjoy ,
Sunday’s Words of Faith comes from the book of Exodus :
The Book of Exodus or, simply, Exodus, is the second book of the Torah and the Hebrew Bible immediately following Genesis. The book tells how the Israelites leave slavery in Egypt through the strength of Yahweh, the god who has chosen Israel as his people.
My hardest thing about starting bible journaling was the actual stamping on the Bible. I had to fight against lesson from childhood about writing on my journey. But after finishing this first page I was at peace with it. Because as scholars of old I was highlighting the message with beauty and meaning. Enjoy my first page.
I decorated my verse in lots of happy colors with flowers and a lady beg( lady Luck of new beginning) . Bible journaling is perfect for all the small stamps I have collected over the years in this traditional Bible where space is limited.
Stop bye next week as we explore the – The Book of Leviticus is the third book of the Torah and of the Old Testament. Lisa
