For fun today, a little peek inside my journal pages... At the top of the month I began some new year journalling... And after a couple of weeks in, I'm still working, still writing. I've been taking my time exploring what I would like this year of JOY to hold.
LOVE and HOPE are my support words to go along with all the JOY... and some words of inspiration: When God closes a door, He opens a window...
A new addition to my journal this year, is that I'm adding some bullet journal-style charts to my pages to fill in progress of key areas of focus. You might notice that I'm using just a plain, spiral bound notebook for my journalling--nothing too fancy for my scribblings and musing. (I did jazz up the cover with some scrapbook papers. I prefer unlined pages, but I couldn't find one I liked, so lined it is for now...)
Another something new I'm adding to my pages this year is journalling with the Daily Question on Gratefulness, a beautiful community-supported online project rooted in gratitude--grateful, mindful living.
It's wonderful having some great, creative companions while journalling... like Jesus, and the King of Rock and Roll! (VERY fun singing Elvis Presley card given to me by my sweet sister recently for my birthday!)
Some creative sparks are beginning to crackle here, and next week I'll be dipping into some online courses. 10 Days to Making Art You Love presented by Tara Leaver, a sort of mini course to jump-start creativity. And I'll also be starting The Broken Way, a 6-session online Bible Study based on Ann Voskamp's book of same title. VERY excited!
For more creative fun, stop by next week when I'll be sharing some crochet that's hooking around here... And thank you, again, for the VERY, very warm welcome back to blogland... it has been sooo good!!
