Power of Your Words

Kind words are like honey–sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” 

Proverbs 16:24

Our words according to the Bible have the power to bring life as well as death. Proverbs 12:6. The writer of Proverb tells us, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it( the Word of Jesus ) will eat its fruit”( fruit meaning its rewards, blessings from Jesus).

But in the Bible also, words are so important they will go into the eternal life with us. Right there at the gates! Jesus said,

“But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matthew 12:36–37).

It’s not always easy but we my really try to remember to use words to build up and not destroy. Spread God’s love. Finding direction and examples are easy to come by as kindness is mentioned in Bible over 300 times and many dealing with our speech. Again emphasizing the importance. Go then and lift up! 💖

🖌️Bible Art Journaling technique here:

Acrylic paints directly painted on an unfinished hymn book page. I started with the wings,let dry, then heart shape. Letting each layer dry between more applications and fine paint work. To keeps colors from mixing together and becoming muddy drying in-between is applying colors loose and freely in background when heart and wings completed. Finally, a coat of gel medium over everything thing. This one happened to be glossy. It also give strength to page. Words are written with a #pigmapen you guessed it….after paint dried, over top. I went in with Faber Castell markers and filled in parts of letter and accents.

Hope you find this helpful in creating your own pages!

Happiness is in Obeying

Deuteronomy 11:26-28 sums it up like this: 
“Obey and you will be blessed.
Disobey and you will be cursed.”

Why is it so hard at times? I know it helps me if I keep the word in front of me,literally, on notes,bookmarks, written on my calendar pages…

What do you do to keep the word in your heart and on your mind?

Bible Art Journaling technique here: I printed this template and placed it behind my page. This page happen to have a wide margin and fit well. You can always resize on your computer or on the printer to fit your desired page. I then traced it LIGHTLY with pencil to be sure I liked the placement.Followed by tracing it with waterproof,acid-free Pigma Micron black marker in black (.o3 size) I let it dry a bit before erasing lines as after you use watercolor pencil or watercolors, the pencil will not erase. I followed with my watercolor pencils. I didn’t water activate this one but do love how soft the pencils are on the thin Bible page.Darkening the stone along the sides to add depth. The ray I toned the entire thing with yellow Look close and see how I left a bit of the yellow glowing from stones before starting to layer with the orange but not taking it to the top edge of the ray. Finishing up with a date. hope this helps! Love to see your interpretation of Deuteronomy 11:26-28 or other verses you apply this to.

Creative Travel Journal ages 14+

Jun 18, 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM

CURIO Cool,  Zelienople, PA 

Join me as I guide you through the steps of creating your very own travel journal! Finishing a travel journal while traveling is a difficult thing to do.  Mostly because of time – or, better said, the lack of it.

We take trips to relax and have adventures, and there is often more adventure time than relaxing time when you could play in your travel journal. You don’t know how or where to begin, have the best intentions and time slips away. Day after day this happens and you get discouraged. Returning home with a few notes, doodles, and a whole lot of memories, brochures, ticket stubs, and receipts. and a phone full of photos.

All of these pieces could help you finish your journal at home – if you could only put the pieces together. But what if we got started BEFORE an adventure or trip?

You can create a simple but memorable journal to capture all your memories now – before your summer travels begin! This journal can be perfect for those stay-vacation days to large adventurous trips. Let your creativity flow!

All materials are included in the class fee. $35.
