Readers…this is my winter journal.
Winter journal…these are my blog friends.
Now we’re introduced, let’s get to know one another!
Never bought one before, a spiral art book that is, but I love it and wish I’d dived off the end of this pool long ago.
She binds 80, 8″ x 11″ creamy textured sheets and offers tons of room to roam with, get this, not a single line to tell me where to stop or go. The only limit is my imagination. It’s spiral bound so I can flip it open flat, a permanent feature I’ll want from now on. Just too way handy!
The girl in me decorated the cover and the ADD part of me titled it “Seeing My God in the Winter Time” to remind me that my focus this season it to purposefully look for God in each windy day. I can tell you the assignment alone has already opened my eyes significantly. About the time I begin to voice or even think a complaint about the inconvenience cold, my heart is convicted to not settle for this age-old default but instead dig below the surface to find God in the very season He created.
Journaling with or without doodling is a bit of work at first till you get the hang of it. I don’t sit down and draw or journal instantly. It takes precious effort, but it’s important and worth it. Next time I’ll begin sharing what God has only begun to reveal and how it’s warmed my heart in what has always been a very cold and desolate season for me.
Till next time.
