I hope your doing well.
It is a warm and muggy day today, so just perfect to be inside and do a little crafting.
A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to the idea of journaling in your Bible. I just loved this concept. I have seen on the internet that alot of ladies are doing this, I have no clue where this idea originated from. And I don't think I would be comfortable giving any "man" credit for something like that concerning God's holy words. I believe all glory regarding his Word belongs to God, I am sure you understand.
I have marked and put notes in my Bible for years, since I was 16 years old. I have used Kay Arthur's concept of Inductive Bible Study since the 1980's. So, the concept of using craft supplies I had and ramping up my journaling in my Bible was so up my alley. They do sell new Bible's for this and it gives you space for your journaling (and notes). Before ordering a Bible I did a little research regarding preferences I had. I went with a KJV Bible (that is the version I use to study with), a large print too. As the small type is difficult for me to see. It also has Jesus words in red, which I like. And no lines in the journaling areas. These were my preferences. I will be journaling on the outer edge and putting my personal notes on the inside column, top and bottom. My Bible has four spaces available for journaling. The text is in a two column form in the middle of the Bible. I will only be sharing my pages with the journaling using my craft supplies when I post my pages, all private notes will be added after that. I choose Psalm 42:1 to journal today, which says,
Here are some pics for my first page.

I used some bubble wrap for the dots and a beautiful wedgewood blue ink to mimic the water brook refered to in the scripture. The paper and hart (deer head) are from Prima, the Cigar Box Secrets Collection. The small swirl stamps are from my stash. For the journaling I used a journaling pen.

I also want to state very clearly that I don't mind if this or future post for my Journaling Bible are pinned or repinned into Pinterest, but I do not give my permission for this post or pictures to be launched in any way into Facebook.
I am so glad you stopped by, God bless you.
