J is for Journey

In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.

Today I have chosen J is for Journey.

I was going to choose Joy as the word for J especially as today is our 36th Wedding Anniversary.  And an extra dose of joy is that today we get to spend the day with our friends Keith & Valerie who are visiting the UK from the US.

This is when they visited us in the Midlands in 2014.  We had such fun.

We saw them in 2017 when we went to stay with them during our grand trip around the US and Canada.

But back to my journal page and JOURNEY.  The point of this A-Z is to choose a word and look at the word of the year through the lens of the alphabetical word.  When I was looking for verses about journey, I found three that were about God's commitment to me.

I glued some tissue to the journal pages.

I printed out the verses and tried them out in various places.  I like making travel journals so I have lots of stickers about journeys and I went a bit mad with them.  In my defence I am trying to use them up - but possibly not all of them on the same page!

I stuck the verses down.

Here are the pages together.

Thanks for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
