Do Not Lose Heart

My first Bible Journaling...I don't have the journaling bible with 2" margins to do all this great art, what I have is my large print King James bible and my NIV Mom's Devotional bible.  I don't feel I need to purchase one to highlight verses and create art in my bible.

I've read the bible completely two times, but I really enjoy bible study lessons and better yet, I love when I pray before opening the bible and then just open it and read.  God always provides the verse(s)   I need.  This morning, I prayed specifically for my friend and coworker who is battling cancer.  She went through chemo last year and was given a clean bill of health, but unfortunately at her follow up appointment this week, they found two more spots.  She is a woman of faith and when I opened my bible, these words stood out "Do Not Lose Heart".

So I emphasized those words in this little corner of free space on this page.  On the edge, I wrapped some washi tape and plan on doing that on each page I add a little something.  If I ever need to go back and look for these specific pieces, they will be easy to find.

I have been internet surfing and pinterest seeking for hints and ideas.  I think the best thing for me is using coloring pencils and a BIC pen.  I may try to experiment with some transparent paint at one point, but we'll see.

My hope is that instead of just underlining verses or jotting down notes here and there, I'll do a little colorful entry of inspiring words of faith.  I know it'll be fun to find these treasures later.  By the way, I have a photo of my daughter and an old friend of hers when they were five years old tucked in my bible.  I keep it in there because it makes me smile.
