If you ever have a question that you want to ask me, just ask me. I don't share everything here on the blog but if you have ever been to one of my classes you know that if you ask, I will babble.
Here is a look at me babbling about Bible Journaling during our meet up in San Jose at A Work of Heart Studio.
So last week during my visit to The Making Place , I was asked the question "How do you find time to do all of the things you do?" and my answer was quick and simple.
"I give God my time first and HE provides the time I need"
and that is the truth.
If I don't do this, I am like a merry-go-round that has fallen off of its axis (aka whirling dervish) It took me a long time to trust all of this because I was in control (so I thought) but it is true.
Here is more truth: I forget this principle some days because I am human. I get up and go on my own merry way without giving a shout out to God and sometime during that day, I feel it. I stumble, heck, sometimes I run straight into a brick wall (one I have most likely built myself) but when I do, I get back up, readjust myself and STOP to chat with God.
"Whoops, I am sorry that I thought I could handle today on my own. I know better than that but I still tried to do life on my own. I know I need YOU and I thankful that you are here to catch me every time I fall"
That's all it really takes. Well, a little more than that, but I think you get the jist.
Now, I am not going to preach to you because that is not me. I am going to tell you what works for me and make a simple suggestion here. If you need more time (not like a 25th hour in the day) than can I suggest you start by giving God your time first everyday.
Just give it a whirl and don't say you don't have time. You have to make time, but seriously, it totally works.
Try it for a week. See what happens.
It is a promise so it is going to work.
For the past week my Journaling Bible has been, lets say, "on a little roadtrip" therefore I do not have it to journal and doodle in. When I left it behind (with some very caring people) as I drove away I felt like I was leaving one of my kids at daycare.
After a few days of being homesick for my own bible, I decided to venture into another Bible I have here that my sweet friend Jill gave me last year. It is a "daily" Reading Bible.
Last night during Monday Night Football, I sat and doodled on the few blank pages at the back of the Bible. If you are just starting out and are nervous, go to the back and see if there are some blank pages. That is the perfect place to start.
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to remind you that you DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A JOURNALING BIBLE. You do not have to have a 2" margin and you do not have to have a bunch of supplies.
and yes, it does bleed but so did HE.
To read more about my process you can check out this post.
and speaking of Bible Journaling, may I hint that you should check back here on Thursday for an exciting announcement?
Sundays around here consist of getting prepared for the following week, working (me), laundry, grocery shopping, football and as of today....
I am not going to work (while at home/in town) on Sundays anymore. I made the decision today after this weekends message at Church. You can watch it here.
At our house we are all TOO BUSY and I am at the TIP TOP of that list. When you work from home, it is a 24/7 job and although I am able to do several things at once (like laundry, crock pot and creative stuff at the same time) I realized this morning that "if and when things pop up" on Sundays, I want to take time to enjoy them and NOT say "I have to/need to work" so I am clearing my big table off, throwing a load of laundry in, turning football on (I LOVE to listen to it) and I am going to scrapbook dog-gone-it!
Scrap booking is something that I love to do and have not done in a long time. Scrapbooks are something my boys love to look through and because I have not done it in such a long time, they only have photos to look via the computer and scrap-booking is something I can do while I sit with my family on Sundays.
Sounds good, huh?
