Bible Journaling Advent ~ HOPE 12 8 17

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him - the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions of the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra's den, and the yound child will put its hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious.


Pro_23:18  Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
Isa_8:17  I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in him.
Jer_17:13  O LORD, the hope of Israel, all who forsake you shall be put to shame; those who turn away from you shall be written in the earth, for they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living water.

Bible Journaling Advent ~ HOPE 12 5 17

His delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide by what his ears hear; but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt around his waist, and faithfulness the belt around his loins. Isaiah 11:3-5


For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Romans 8:24-15 NIV

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. — John 3:16 (NIV).

"Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)"
I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father you have come
And chosen me now
To carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now
Be with me now

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven

Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me

Lyrics (Amy Grant)

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up ~ 12 5 17

This photo is from a few years ago. I need to get into the Christmas spirit and decorate for this year, but haven't found the umph!! so far. It just doesn't seem possible that it is December and 2017 is going to come to a close soon. Seems like it just started. Plus, we have had warmer than normal weather for November and December so maybe if we get some snow they are predicting, it will be for a better decorating mood. Although, I just want a nice, soft falling big piles of the white stuff. :)

I've been sewing some gifts for my girls so that helps to get the Christmas spirit going, and am crocheting hats for Little Hats Big Hearts that need to be done and mailed soon.

What's going on in your part of the world this week. Look forward to your photography or graphics link ups.

Bible Journaling Advent ~ HOPE 12 4 17 and a gift for you

And there shall come forth a Shoot out of the stock of Jesse [David's father], and a Branch out of his roots shall grow and bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him - the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord - And shall make Him of quick understanding, and His delight shall be in the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, neither decide by the hearing of His ears;  Isaiah 11:1-3 AMP (Amplified Bible)

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love,
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
Psalm 33:18, 22 and Psalm 9:18

Sunday Scripture Blessings ~ 12 3 17 ~ HOPE

A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. The spirit of the LORD shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. His delight shall be in the fear of the LORD.
(taken from (c)Pittsburgh Theological Seminary)

As we begin to celebrate Advent we have HOPE:
For I know the plans I have for you, "declares the LORD," plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. (Isaiah 40:31 NIV)

May the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NIV)

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one HOPE when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(Ephesians 4:4 NIV)

As we celebrate Advent, I am following a couple different devotionals, one called Unwrapping Advent by Margaret Feinberg and also one by the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary as well as my own that I've planned out.

H ~ His name is called Mighty Counselor
O ~ One God and Father of All
P ~ Plans He has for us
E ~ Emmanuel

Pictorial Tuesday 11 28 ~ Some Dahlia Love

Playing with some hues, tones, and textures, etc. and sharing some Dahlia love. Couldn't resist just one more summer flower photo before the snow flying photos begin. So far, we are having above normal temps. Today is in the 50's for late November. I'll take it though. :)

The Dahlia has always been my most favorite photo.

Please share what you've been shooting or making into photographic art.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 11 26 17

Matthew 11:25-30 - At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 11 19 17

Blank journal page that I edited is from where you can find some great free to use photos.
I'm still reading in Matthew as the Christmas season approaches. I plan to read Matthew as well as some of the other New Testament gospels during this time that share the words of Jesus. What are you reading or do you have Advent reading plans that you usually follow?

This, then, is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread. 
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
Matthew 6:9-13 NIV

From the Amplified Classic Bible:
Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven ([e]left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have [f]given up resentment against) our debtors.
13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

From the KJV 
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Blessings to everyone, and to those who will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, I hope you have a wonderful day and lots of good food. With God on our side, we can be Thankful every day of the year. Yay!!

I had the pleasure of going to the grand-daughter's school Thanksgiving play (she's the baby of the grandbabies and lives 3 1/2 hours away), and that was a blessing in itself to see all those adorable Kindergarten children so excited to be putting on their play for their parents and grandparents. She remembered all her lines. She was a little pilgrim girl, who shared scripture as well as a poem about a Turkey. She's been excited about it for over a month, and the day finally arrived.

That day, grandpa and I were Thankful for the blessing of her and her sweet nature as well as all those other children that were in the play.

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 11 14 17

Since it has gotten more winter/chilly like weather, I haven't been out to photograph any outdoors so thought I'd try some still life from above and lighting. I didn't fuss much so wasn't anything dramatic. I was trying to arrange light in the ones up above for photo shadows, etc. The last one, I just decided to do some editing in Elements and did the Getting Frosty because the whole yard has been frosty white of a morning lately.

The pine cones are from my neighbor's pine tree courtesy of falling into my yard. When I saw them, I thought fun photo prop and also some decorating for Christmas.

You're next and look forward to all those who share here at Pictorial Tuesday. Thanks for linking.
