Here are some finished journal pages that I am finally getting around to posting. Lately I have been feeling very open to and IN my art. I have always believed in living with passion, purpose and to serve those who cross my path. I feel God telling my heart that it is OK to rest, to say no. Something, I have not done. So, I am taking things off my plate and at first I just felt so guilty. One of my very close friends bought me a devotional: "Jesus Calling," wow...it has just been amazing. The next day, which was my first day with my new book(it was April 23rd)...this is what it said:
"Keep your eyes on ME, not only for direction but also for empowerment. I never lead you to do something without equipping you for the task. That is why it's so important to seek My will in everything you do. There are many burned-out Christians who think more is always better, who deem it unspiritual to say no. In order to know MY will, you must spend time with ME-enjoying MY Presence. This is not an onerous task but a delightful privilege. I will show you the path of Life; in MY Presence is fullness of Joy; at MY right hand there are pleasures forevermore."
Psalm 141:8; Psalm 16:11(NKJV)
uumm, Yes, Amen, my Father...I am listening...

I have been journaling at least 10 minutes everyday. I use to put myself under some pressure to fill up a page with writing, sometimes I could do it, other times I just didn't have a lot to say. I have been inspired by Julie at http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/ to journal in segments on my pages! What a light bulb going off!
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall softly upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
