Image Style Bible Journaling

What would a photo show to illustrate a margin in a Bible? Thinking about a snapshot to reinforce a section of Scripture helps to cement that for us to remember. Images can be traced or drawn free-hand. They can also be mixed with typography- words. There are a multitude of artist renderings from "in the margins" to full page drawings. Margins may be preprinted and added to a Bible. We appreciate the wide variety of  images.

Psalm 103:12  Andrea KiLpatrick “As far as the east is from the west…”  These are powerful words, but what I love even more are the verses right before this one, “as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love.” I chose the compass to show the extensiveness of his love and forgiveness as the lines pointing out away from each are never ending. That’s God’s amazing love for us!

John 8:12 Andrea KiLpatrick “You are the light of the world” This verse has a special meaning for me this year especially as my school was greatly affected by the Hurricane Harvey. Our theme verse is Matthew 5:16, and our theme is “SHINE” as we let our light shine before others. Throughout the flood and storm, our school continued to be a light for the Houston area. Despite our own devastation, we have seen God’s light in the darkness.

Matthew 21:19  Andrea KiLpatrick “Hosanna in the highest!” Palm Sunday has always been one of my favorite Sundays to worship and recognize the beginning of Holy Week. I have many fond memories of this day as my church growing up always has Confirmation on this sacred day. Whether it was my confirmation or other church members throughout the years, I love that we celebrated the two together. The image is a great reminder of the joy and light that Jesus brought to the people.

ecc 4:3 pEGGY THIBODEAU Imagine trying to keep warm in bed before central heat! Having a warm hubby is nice. My hubby is a human furnace! But I think this concept applies to more than warmth. Having a partner in life is a blessing, especially if they follow Christ. For those that are single, widowed, or divorced, Jesus is a wonderful spouse. I have friends who brag on how he takes care of them better than an earthly husband.

PSALMS 91:16 PEGGY THIBODEAU In Scripture, the palm is always the date palm, stately and beautiful. It has extremely deep tap roots—called a root ball—and thus can flourish even in the desert, growing tall and living long. It is perhaps the most useful of all trees, not only producing dates, but also sugar, wine, honey, oil, resin, rope, thread, tannin, and dyestuff. Its seeds are fed to cattle and its leaves are used for roofs, fences, mats, and baskets. Its fruit is said to get sweeter as the tree grows older. May we all flourish like those date palms and produce sweeter and sweeter fruit for the Lord, even in our old age!

Isaiah 43:22 One Spring morning in my 15th year, my father and I were getting in the car to go to church early, as we sang in the choir together. He asked me, "Do you notice anything?" I looked around the driveway and said, "No." He said, "Look! The daffodils are starting to sprout!" He talked to me about how important it is to pay attention. When God is doing something new, we might miss it if we're not paying attention.

Song of solomon 5:12 I just returned from a month long painting trip, living in my van. When I got home, this is how I felt about seeing my husband, who I missed so much.
