Bible Journaling: Your Comforts Delight My Soul

Good Thursday to you! I'm excited because it's MY Friday!

 When I read this bible verse, I thought it was a perfect one to read during my days that are filled with so much anxiety. I am a self proclaimed "STRESSER"....I know that's not a good thing, I should turn all my worries over to God, but it's something I have to remind myself to do. 

The good thing: it seems I have learned how to live with stress!!! NOW, I didn't say I have learned how to deal with all the stresses of life, but sadly, I stress about everything. 

For the past few months, I have been handling things in a different way. How? I pray, and pray, and then pray some MORE!

In life we have issues, stress, anxieties, tragedies, etc..........but we need to remind ourselves, I NEED to remind myself, that by turning to God, we can take comfort in knowing that HE is there for us, and will carry us through it. 

Psalm 94:19

 "In the multitude of my anxieties within me,
Your comforts delight my soul."

Supplies used: paper was from a small tablet of journaling sheets, heart Washi from Target's $1 spot. Kraft letters: Target $1 spot, tiny letter stickers: Basic Grey, mini stamps from Michael's, the word "your" are letter rub-ons by Making Memories. Misc.-Other letter stickers.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Bible Journaling: Hebrews 6:19

I absolutely LOVE this verse! I have seen it a few times from other sources just this week. For me, it confirms God's message to remain firm and secure in our Hope and Faith. 

Hebrews 6:19--"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain."

For this I used supplies I have, alphabet stickers, a graphic printed from Google, and the black heart is from Target's dollar spot ( I love THAT spot). They are called Chalkboard Stickers. The tab at the top is also from Target. Background was colored with chalk.

Last Week of April in my ECLP

Wow....April has come and gone! I am loving this color combo this week...I love pink and purple together!!

Using what I had on hand...purple chevron Washi Tape from my daughter's collection. She said she found this at Hobby Lobby. I got the bottom pink/purple washi at Walmart. And I'm not too sure about the all pink washi....I think it's from Michael's. The "weekend" banner was a freebie at 
Inspired Blush, she's got the cutest print outs...for free!!!!
Pink tassel was made by me!!!!

Nothing But Sunshine

We've been getting lots of rain these past few weeks but I am NOT complaining!! God knows south Texas needs lots of rain for the crops, animals, and water sources.

We had an awesome storm on Friday night. I was outside taking pictures with my tablet and spotted this enormous cloud....come to find out, after the fact, we were under a Tornado Warning. 
Thank God we were safe and there was no damage. I did get a great shot though:

But since then we have had nothing but beautiful sunshine. So that's my theme in my Filofax pink Calipso for this week. The stickers are from WalMart, they were part of an Easter set. The "Today I'm doing this" stamp is by Recollections.And that big Sun cutout was actually from a Bath & Body flyer I got in the mail. I thought it was so cute I kept it! The polka dotted washi is from Hobby daughter gave me samples. The yellow hold reinforcements are from Annie's Paper Boutique (online)

Thanks for visiting!!! Have an awesome Sunday!!!

Bible Journaling: God Knows my Heart

Wow....seems like forever since I last posted some bible journaling pages. It has actually been a few weeks since I have gotten any journaling done. I was so happy to be able to sit down with my bible on Sunday evening and get this verse done.

This verse means alot to me. Why? Because I often say..."even though you may not agree with me and my decisions...God knows my heart." And for me, that's all that matters. HE knows my heart and my intentions. 

1 Thel 2:4--"Our purpose is to please God not people, He alone examines the motives of our hearts."

Sometimes it's hard not to want to please others. I find myself avoiding conflict and just trying to please others.....but then I have to remind are not here to please man, but to please God. And that's all that really matters. 

I use an ESV Journaling Bible by Crossway:

I used supplies on hand: Basic Grey "RSVP" paper pack 
(Found at Ross for $3), 
An Emaginations heart punch. Gold alphabet stickers by Sticko (Walmart), American Crafts pink, glitter mini brads (Hobby Lobby), Sew Easy Fancy Floss, Paper Doilie, an my pink Pebbles date stamp (Ross)

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a wonderful tomorrow!!!!

My FIRST Pocket Letter

Happy Sunday to you! I am excited to share my 1st Pocket Letter with you!
I was asked by a Facebook friend, and fellow Owl-Obsessed girl if I wanted to do a Pocket Letter swap with her. I had heard of the concept and that was about I did some "googling" and found this:

Janet Lane-Pocket Letters

It sounded like so much fun so I was game!

Here is my pocket letter that I mailed to my friend Emilie:

I filled it with lots of owl goodies: Paper clips, stickers, washi tape, tea, a letter about me, and more. 

This is what she mailed me! I was blown away!!! Look how scrumptious this set is!!!

She put such detail into every little pocket!!! And the extras are adorable! I love the cute polka dotted pencil which will work great in my planner for penciling in dates!!! A super cute note pad and a candy bracelet!! {squeal}

This is the front.

And this is the back. I didn't even know to fill the back up too!

a BIG Thank you to my friend Emilie for my 1st super cute owl pocket letter! I LOVE It!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a blessed Sunday!!

This Week In my Erin Condren...

Hey there! I know its been a long while since my last post... my hours changed at work and i got really busy!
I have really been enjoying this planner. I love the layout, and the room to write and decorate. This week I have neglected writing it in daily, but I will play "catch-up" on Friday.

The stickers are by The Paper Studio, my daughter got me this set for my birthday. 
The "on-the-go" planner bag was found at good will for about $3. 
Markers are from Target.
And the pink planner band is actually a head band from Dollar General, 3/$4. 

This was actually a cosmetic bag, but works really well for my pens, washi, paperclips, and sticky notes. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hoping to get some "me" time on Friday when I am off. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
