At the end of each year I take some time to pray and ask God to give me a focus for the following year. It usually starts around Thanksgiving, and I keep my eyes and ears open over the holidays. This year I got more than usual, and the first thing I got was a symbol. That is unusual for me. A key, or keys. Then I started singing an old hymn in the shower I hadn’t thought of in years. I love when things keep coming. That’s when I often write the message on our kitchen door I painted with chalkboard paint. A gift to myself was a set of chalkboard markers, so I put them to good use. Here is a photo taken of the actual door:
Yikes! It’s already February! January was full and zipped by as fast as a full really-lived month could for me.
I then incorporated the photo into my 2014 The Documented Life Project Journal. I recently joined the Documented Life Project Art Journaling group. You can too if you would like! Just click on the link a couple of sentences back to find out more.
Here is a detail:
More typical of my Moleskine Art is the pages below that show my focuses for 2014:
KEY WORD: OPEN
KEY VERSES: MATTHEW 16:17-18 & MATTHEW 6:33
KEY SONG: hymn “Open my Eyes, that I may See”
SYMBOL: KEY/KEYS because keys open things!
2014 is well underway, but it’s not too late to discover a focus. I feel expectant!
I’ve joined one more Art Journaling group and I’m very excited about the content!
It is an Art Study on Identity. It is wonderful so far and I will be blogging about that soon!
