My Weekly Bible Journaling #63 Ecclesiastes – Song of Songs (Link Up)

 

First a very Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms as well as all women out there who inspire us and support us all with their love and kindness!

That is one of the reasons this post is soooo late going up. Last year on Mother’s Day I brought home my youngest baby from the hospital. I had all 8 of my kids home for the day and it was wonderful. This year because of the kids work schedules we will be celebrating today and tomorrow!

The other reason this post is late is because my youngest celebrated her 1st birthday yesterday and then early this morning she woke up sick. She decided to keep Mom and Dad awake until almost 5:00 this morning. I am exhausted!

So I hope you all have a beautiful day. I will be trying to catch some sleep on the couch (haha!)

Here is what I read and journaled this week:

We must not be confident in our own strength, instead we need to look up to God for His blessing. Without that all of our endeavors will be in vain. 
I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift  or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise  or wealth to the brilliant  or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all. -	Ecclesiastes 9:11

Just finished reading from the book of Ecclesiastes. I just don’t think this book is read enough! 
Now all has been heard;  here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,  for this is the duty of all mankind. - Ecclesiastes 12:13

Started reading the Song of Solomon today. One of the best Bible studies I ever did is called The Song of Solomon, A Study of Love, Sex, Marriage, and Romance by Tommy Nelson. Have you ever done this Bible study? What do you think of it? 
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. - Song of Solomon 2:1

The good news – We had 10 link ups!

The bad news –  not all of them fit in with the theme. So I had to come up with some rules for our link up…

My Weekly Bible Journaling GOD Inspired Creative Arts Link Up Rules!

You can participate in My Weekly Bible Journaling (#weeklyBiblejournaling) Link Up by:

1) Sharing your creative, artistic, crafty post that is GOD Inspired!! We want to see how God is leading your life with creative arts!

2) You’re welcome to link up your creative, artistic, crafty projects that are inspired by God like: Bible Journaling, Scrapbooking, Card Making, pictures/ journaling pages you have painted, colored or use mixed media on, sewing and creative writing.

3) Visit your link up neighbors, leave them some comment love and let them know that you are praying for them and their walk with the Lord!

4) If your post does not contain both a creative element and you telling us how God inspired your art or about your relationship with the Lord– then it is subjected to be deleted from this link up. I really hate to do that so please don’t make me!

    So sorry about the sickness. I hope you get some rest today and your baby feels better. I really love your journaling this week. You inspire me. I didn’t do any in my Bible but my collage page reflects my heart as I was reminded that God is always with us. Blessings to you!

    • Dani says:

      I think we finally figured out what is wrong with her – she is cutting teeth! 🙂

      Thank you so much for your sweet words. You have no idea how much they mean to me.
      Your collage page is wonderful and inspiring as well! Thank you for sharing your heart with us all!

    I am so glad that it is that she is cutting teeth! Though that can be so hard for the little ones! I pray that she feels better soon! I love that you are doing a link up for your journaling! It is going to be so fun to see all that God is inspiring others to do!

    Visiting from Dare to Share

    Blessings,

    Amy

      Hello Amy! I agree – I am so happy it is nothing more serious than cutting teeth! 🙂
      I am praying others find this link up and share what He has been inspiring them to create too!

    Lovely blog, Bible journaling post, and link up. I deleted my link after I realized it was for crafting only. I am Bible journaling as well, but I’m doing a series of blogposts on how God is using journaling and other resources to help heal me physically and spiritually. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to the journaling in the series so… Thanks again for your lovely post. Your creativity and talent truly are from God. Have a blessed day!

    • Dani says:

      I am so sorry! Please be sure when you share your journaling that you link up with us! I would love to see how the Lord is inspiring you and helping you in your daily life!

    Beautiful journaling. I bought a journaling Bible, but haven’t had the courage to do anything in it yet. Someday, although it will never be as beautiful as yours.

    • Dani says:

      Whatever you create in your Journaling Bible will be beautiful because God will inspire you! I hope you give it a try one day! Blessings!
