I am reading and journaling chronologically through the Bible in 2018. Each Sunday I will post one of my journaling pages and thoughts from that week’s reading. There are several ways for you to participate; see below for details!
Much of this week’s reading was about building the tabernacle. I love this part. I am in awe of how God planned out and communicated every little detail. He cared about the beauty and workmanship of the sacred place built for Him. This shows a lot about God’s character and personality; He is creative, He is intentional, He cares about order, He values beauty and excellence. I would love to find a resource that somehow visually lays out all of the details of the tabernacle as best we can decipher. I’ve seen a kit to build a model, perhaps someone has created a coloring book with images. I’m a visual learner and I think something like that where I can see and experience it hands on would really solidify these passages and maybe even shed light on things I’ve missed. I did a Bible study on it once and that was awesome but it has been a while. Let me know if you know of a great study resource on this topic!
It has been a busy week (again) and I’ve been pretty tired so I went with one of the included coloring pages in my Bible. I don’t know if I’m thrilled with how it turned out. My gelatos weren’t cooperating (or maybe I just need more practice) and I bent the pages. A thought occurred to me as I was trying to decide what the perfect colors for this page would be….I won’t know until I try something exactly how it will look or if I will like it. Any sort of artistic pursuit takes practice, trial and error, and experience with your materials to improve. I can’t expect to make all my journaling perfect or I won’t ever expand and improve my skills. I just have to try and learn. Which, of course, all goes back to the fact that this is really about the experience and process, not the product!
I do plan to watch more of the Bible Journaling Ministries classes and hopefully glean some new ideas and techniques from that to try soon!
What I used for this entry:
Part of my study this year includes writing out scriptures on certain subjects. They are women and marriage; children, family, and behavior; and feelings and the character of God. I keep these in three different sections of a multi-subject notebook. I share the scriptures I find in the facebook group, join me there to follow along!

Well, so far February has not been a slower month like I thought it would. Perhaps the second half of February will give us a bit of a break! Or maybe March. Or maybe I just need to accept the fact that the season of life I’m in, with five busy small children, a soldier hubby, a volunteer ministry, and a small hobby farm, is just going to always be busy!! I do think I’m finding more balance in my life and am at least starting to feel like we are getting into a much-needed rhythm in our days and weeks.
