I am reading and journaling chronologically through the Bible in 2017. Each Sunday I will post one of my journaling pages and thoughts from that week’s reading. I will also have a linky for anyone who would like to participate to share how their Bible reading and journaling is going!
Yay! I have reached the New Testament! The Old Testament is wonderful and full of great lessons and is obviously critical to explaining WHY we needed Christ to come but I sure was ready to get into the New Testament and the ministry of Jesus. One of the things I love about the Chronological Bible is having the passages about certain events all right together so you can compare them and get a complete picture of what happened.
I wanted to do this page in a lot of gold but didn’t want to use my pen on the edging because it covers up the printed texture markings. So I used colored pencils then I outlined with the gel pen so it would stand out from the background but I think I should have skipped the outlining as it got a little messy (it is hard to color with a wiggly baby in your lap). I like the way everything else turned out. The oil pastel for the background worked wonderfully!
What I used for this entry:
It looks like there might have been a problem with my linky last week. I am so sorry about that, please feel free to link up more than one post this week!

Whew this week was busy and exhausting. I am doing some re-evaluating (I’m finding that re-evaluating activities and commitments is an ongoing process and have accepted that it will need to happen regularly) and praying about what activities I should really be doing and what I need to let go to focus more on the things that matter. This week showed me that I don’t have enough margin in my life for the season I’m currently in. I did however manage to get two extra posts up so I’m pretty happy about that!
