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!
How is it already October??? Here I am in the middle of the Gospels. Before I know it I’ll be into the letters and Revelation. Wow I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by (although there have definitely been some long days and weeks in there too). One parable I read this week that has never stuck out to me before was the Parable of the Shrews Manager (Luke 16:1-18). I’m still a little confused about what this is supposed to mean. I’ve of course heard the part about not serving two masters but the rest of this story for some reason has never been more than a passing read for me. It seems like the manager is being hailed for his quick thinking and the fact that he made friends to help him out but he was obviously wrong, deceitful, and untrustworthy. I believe this one deserves some more pondering and deeper study!
This was a fun page to color. I decided to make it very colorful and playful since it is about children. I love Jesus’ heart for children, probably because I also have a heart for children. Kids are so undervalued in our world, often even in Christian circles. I believe we all need to remember that Jesus elevated them above everyone else in this verse. I had planned to try out coloring in the whole page but my own kids decided they needed my attention and I didn’t get back to it!

Another busy week down, a slightly less busy week coming up! We went to the Mother Earth News Fair this weekend, that was fun, lots of interesting things to see and people to meet. I don’t expect to post much this week, just one review I’m working on for you but I’m already brainstorming my blog plans for next year. I plan to increase my posting just a tad and add some series and features that I hope will be helpful to you!
