I have been wanting to get into mixed media for a while. Every time I see post of some of the bogs I follow my blood starts pumping. So I started praying last year (2014) Give me on outlet of this LORD. Well he definitely did! I started the year of 2014 very sick. I was off work and the only thing I could do was surf the internet in between sleeping and resting. I came across the documented life project and was all gung ho but never did anything with it on my own. But I followed it all year long yearning to participate. Well as 2014 was coming to a close I knew the stronger I grew the more I wanted to participate in something. So I prayed Lord lead me where you want to be. Take me where you want me to be apart of. He lead to me to http://his-kingdom-come.com . I knew this was where I was supposed to be for 2015 inspiration and participation. I joined the Take me deeper group. Taking part in 52 weeks of bible study/journaling is exactly what I needed. And God knew. HE KNEW just as He always does what is best for me. Which is a mystery sometimes. I was trying to decide what to do for my journal cover. At least for 2 weeks trying to decide and nothing would come.
The inspiration on the site was the song
OCEANS by hillsong
I would listen to the song and a big big ocean would always come to my mind, way bigger than me! What could little ole me do in a big big ocean. Try not to sink? Try to stay afloat? Would I give up?Well a lot of things in life weigh us down. My sickness last year weighed me down. What weighs us down Anchors! We get so tied to things. So I did a little google search on Anchors and the navy song came up Anchors Aweigh! I was please to find out it is NOT anchors away... it is aweigh! Which just made perfect sense to me. So here is my journal cover.
I tried to make my anchor 3 fold 1. the anchor 2. the I in aweigh and 3. a cross.
HOPE you enJOY!
