I love words. So meaningful. So powerful. I read the Bible as God’s loving words to us. To help me meditate, sometimes I look up words in the dictionary to gain deeper understanding of their meaning and gain insight on how I can apply them to my life. Another enjoyable thing is imagining what the word looks like visually, sometimes it’s representational, sometimes abstract. I ask myself what colors represent the words, “What is the color of ______?” Then fill in the blank. It is a life-giving process for me. These two spreads from the journal with black paper are examples of my meditative and prayerful process from reading in 1 John 3 in the Message Bible. The materials I used are a white Gelly Roll gel pen and Prismacolor colored pencils after I penciled it in with a regular graphite pencil.
