Bible Journaling using a Paper Napkin

I will update the photos when I correct Anxiety!! But you get the idea!! LOL

Why yes! I am posting about Llamas again tonight! LOL

For my birthday, my sister in law, made me a beautiful cake. She found some adorable plates and napkins at Dollar General. I loved them so much, I wanted to save one forever. 

I used it in my Journaling Bible with a verse from Proverbs.

Proverbs 12:25 New International Version (NIV)

 Anxiety weighs down the heart,
    but a kind word cheers it up.

We all know that when we suffer from anxiety it puts a heavy burden on us and affects us in our every day life. It's hard to focus, socialize, cope with life, and simply smile. But a kind, encouraging word can help us and warm our hearts. If someone is suffering, please don't point out their faults. The worst thing you can say to someone is, "Are you doing your part? Are you living right? Maybe if you didn't do this, or say this?" 
Don't point out someone's flaws if you fail to see your own. I'm just speaking from experience.
 God does not want us anxious and suffering from life's burdens. 

Here he says:

Philippians 4:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Have you used paper napkins in your Journaling Bibles yet?

I love using them! It's so easy and so pretty. 
Simply peel off the 2nd layer of tissue, cut out your design, and apply it with clear Mod Podge. 
Quick tip: I use a sponge applicator to apply the mod podge to my page, then carefully lay the napkin down. Dab it very carefully w/ the sponge to adhere to the page. Do not wipe, or you will tear your napkin!! Ask me HOW I KNOW!? LOL

And there you go.....

Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a blessed night!
