Bible Journaling: Ruth 2:12
When I first began, my mind was still full of the previous week--kids and work and work and kids. I had just been offered a new position at the agency I work for and was feeling grateful and a bit overwhelmed.
Then, I happened upon Ruth 1-3. Such a good story. It was not a new story for me. I've read it many a time before, parts of it I even wove into my wedding vows over 19 years ago. This reading and dwelling opened up new pieces (I love how He does that!):
During trials and dark days, I would have succumbed, BUT GOD---safe under His wings I have been time and time again. I could see my story and how He continues to teach me to trust---from right where I am :)
This was a really fun layout to complete--I started by using some feather dies to create a stencil template and then sponged feathers in a random pattern. I used distress inks because they blend so well without having to add any additional water. My stamped images, from Sweet N Sassy Stamps, come from the following sets: Words of Life Collection 1, Words of Life Collection 2, His Wings, and Note This.
It always feels a bit risky to share my thoughts and faith, but at the end of the day, this is the real me. I determine to be authentic and truthful on this crazy journey called life--be blessed.
Be Awesome, Jane
