So then what?

I sure hope you are having a great week so far. 
I am!

I wanted to take a moment and thank my friend Charlene for the additional info and confirmation about my little plant.  It's called Elephant Food and it really does only need to be watered once every 3 weeks! Thanks Lady!

So, May 1st I started a new study on The Psalms.  I'm kind of doing it on my
own, but I'm also using the commentary from FB Meyer and finding it very helpful. 
I usually just do study groups so this is a little different for me. 

But here's the problem. I have already journaled several of the
pages in my Journaling Bible in the Book of Psalms. So then what are you supposed to do? 

Well, this is what I did. I got several Moleskine note books one
lined and the other blank. Of course, I decorated it.  That's how I roll.
So now if the page in my journal bible is already illustrated for the Psalm I'm studying,
I can supplement it with my Moleskine. 

Here's an example of how I do it.

This is my illustration for Psalm 1. 

I am giving an illustration of the versus 3-6.

What I am trying communicate is that (as a tree) when your source is plentiful and steady, 
your roots will be deep and strong.  Helping to withstand strong storms.  
If your roots are depending on scarce sources of nutrients your roots will
be shallow and wide. Prone to wondering. 

Knowing that my plentiful and steady source is God, his word and prayer, 
I want my faith roots to be growing deep and narrow.  
That's what I'm working on.

Hi Liz! My ladies bible study group at church has just finished studying Psalms and how I enjoyed it! Oh, your journal cover is darling but your illustrations are fantastic! I love that. You're very talented and I'll bet by you illustrating the important messages this way, they'll stick to your memory!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh, Liz - this is just an awesome post. I love you are studying The Psalms. I don't study them, but I sing them at Mass every week in the choir! ♪ ♫

I absolutely adore your art talent - wow - that tree is amazing.

I love the idea of an illustrated journal! Sometimes you just need more room! Your drawings are always so charming.

Hi, I like your post about Bible journaling. Not so much into fashion, as I'm retired and have way too much clothes now! I do love the way your house is decorated and will read more.
