Last night, a lovely gal named Pati facilitated the first night of "Faithbooking" at our local church. She had done so much prep work, and gave us wonderful journal prompts to start our Faithbooks. (It's like a combo of scrapbooking and devotional journaling.) It was such a blessing to be among other talented people who "get" the same type of things that I like to do! Many had their wonderfully beautifully done scrapbooks to show. they were all neat and clean and crisp with just the right colors and layouts. I enjoyed looking and talking with these talented ladies.
Part of Pati's devotional message to us spoke to the fact that these "Faithbooks" were something we could leave to future generations. She shared Psalm 78:4 "We will tell the next generation the praise worthy deeds of the Lord, His power and the wonders He has done." and Joel 1:3 "Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation." I thought it was lovely. I feel that our Creator is to be highly praised, and is worthy to be praised with all of our gifts. If he has given me the gift of creativity, then I need to worship and praise him creatively too!
Though I will be beginning another Faith Art Journal instead of a Faith Scrapbook, I still feel as if it is a blessing to be in this group, and this morning, as I was going thru a devotion- This verse popped right out as a means of confirmation to me: Jeremiah 30:2 (RSV) "Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you." (where 2 or 3 are gathered together-eh?)
