Scriptures of the Month of September

I have been doing a 4 wk scripture writing on Contentment with the Reset girl in her group Faithful life club on FB. but I have been a week ahead ever since I started. So I am finished for Sept. I have 2 other bible studies going so I didn't want to get behind. We only did 4 verses in just 4 days in a wk so it was very easy and gave me time to be a little creative. These are the pictures of the 4 weeks. The verses were very helpful as I was reminded that it is the lords will that we be content in all things knowing He is in control and working all the time for our best.
  Isa 26:3 "You will keep me in perfect peace, when my mind is stayed on you because I am trusting in you Lord". 
And "Godliness and contentment are great gain", 1 Tim6:6  
There are lots of verses to look up on contentment and I enjoyed the study very much.  I drew out the pages of 1-3 and painted the background on wk4. Then tore the paper around the verses and glued them down.  It is fun to come up with a new idea for each week. Not that it is anything great but just a little creative and artsy.

I start our women's bible study at our church tomorrow morn and I am excited about that.  Glad to be health so I can go this yr.  We will be studying some of Psalms and Proverbs. This is the composition notebook I covered for the study. 

This is the first lesson in Psalm 1. 
May the Lord bless you this week! 

bible Study in HP

 I am still going through Colossians just 3 or 4 verses at a time and doing a little decorating of the pages in the Faith HP. Love this study. I really like to use my iPad for looking at the scripture in the Blue Letter Bible app as I can see 2 versions at a time and I can highlight in pastels. You can choose your own colors in the settings. Most bible apps you can not do that. I also like to look at the  commentaries they have. Very Good!
Colossians 2:2
I want their hearts to be encouraged and joined together in love, so that they may have all the riches of assured understanding and have the knowledge of God’s mystery — Christ. 

Faith Happy Planner in a binder

This is the Faith Happy planner Our son got me for Mothers day.  I have decided how I was going to use it just  a week ago.  I am no longer a fan of the disk system as I once was.  I covered  two of these Franklin Covey binders in the past and after watching some youtube on how to put the HP in a binder that is what I did in one of them.  They fit in the 11/2" rings with extra room.  It is working out really well.

  So I am going through Colossians again. I am writing out the Scriptures, What I am learning, and a Prayer.
I am doing just a few verses at a time. It is really amazing when you study the same book over and over how you always learn something new and understand more and more. So I am enjoying the process very much. 

Using the binder that I covered.
Have a blessed day.
 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; 12 giving thanks[d] to the Father, who has qualified you[e] to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Col 1: 9-14

bible study time.

 I am doing a Psalms 119 study. I decided to go with this cute study book I got from amazon. It is called "Be still my Soul, 90 day bible study coloring journal". I love to color and study so it works for me.
Anyway we do just the 8 verses a day for 22 days. That is the Hebrew alphabet at the beginning of each 8 verses. I have read through this Psalm many times but this time I am making it a meaningful study about being in the word and obeying it.  Just love it!  UPDATE I did finish this study also at the end of may.   

Psalm 119: 1-4
Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the undefiled (the upright, truly sincere, and blameless) in the way [of the revealed will of God], who walk (order their conduct and conversation) in the law of the Lord (the whole of God’s revealed will).
Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are they who keep His testimonies, and who seek, inquire for and of Him and crave Him with the whole heart.
Yes, they do no unrighteousness [no willful wandering from His precepts]; they walk in His ways.
You have commanded us to keep Your precepts, that we should observe them diligently.     

 I hope you are in the word daily not because you have too, but because you GET too!

Bible Study Journal

Update When I got to ch119 I stopped a did a study just of the chapter with a group.  # I am still studying through Psalms with Bob Davis in the Blue Letter Bible App. This pic was taken a few weeks ago but I am now on chapter 50. Learning so much. The card, "Father I adore you", is from our printed out song list at our church in lg print. I always get a copy of it and use it in my journals. I love the words to the songs we sing. When you just read them you can learn so much and use them for a prayer and praise time at home. I have a little trouble with the lights in the sanctuary at church, so it is nice to have the printed out songs to follow along with. My eyes are not what they use to be. 
I punched the Paper lace and added it to a few pockets. I love lace in any form!
God is Good, all the time!
Have a blessed day!

Miniature trailer & vintage trailer sewing machine cover.

 I finally finished the miniature trailer and really like it!

This week I made a vintage trailer sewing machine cover. I do really like it also.
I got my ideas by browsing around on Pinterest. But still came up with my own ideas.

I my study of Psalms 47 I was reading verse 1 and 2
Oh, clap your hand all you peoples! Shout unto God with the voice of triumph!
For the Lord Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth .
I was reminded again what a great song of praise this is right out of the bible. We sing it in church 
Have a blessed Day! God is Good all the time!

DIY Miniature trailer

I thought I would try my hand at making a mimature trailer. I saw a kit but did not want to pay the price for it and wanted it to be smaller. 1/2" size.  So this is made from some foam board, craft wood sticks and fabric. I printed out  the wallpaper, rug, books, stove and cabinet fronts. I also used buttons and beads.I am not quit done with it but close. It is a girls retreat for sure all in pink. Fun to make. 
May the Lord bless your day!


 I am still doing my bible study on these pages and really like them. I am doing pretty good but have missed a few days. I really want to be more consistent. I changed studies and am going through the book of Psalms now. God is so good!

 Some new pages in my reto journal about my sewing journey.

This is a new book (Top left Pic is title) I got at Amazon. It has a weekly coloring page and a psalm a day. It is very nice. 
Have a blessed week!

Planner/ Journals

 I have been busy with planners/journals again. I found this nice turquoise one for .75c but did not like the large snap closure so took that off and replaced it with a a gem and elastic. The inside of it was all black so I glued this craft paper to the inside to brighten it up. I was going to use it for a scripture writing journal but not sure yet.  

 This is another cover I make and it is a lot like the one I gave to my daughter. I 
 liked it so much I make myself a another one almost just like it.

 This is the inside of it.

 My daughter gave me these Franklin Planner pages and I just love them. I am using them for my bible study notes. 

 These are the colors of the seasons this yr in the package.

 This is how I am using them. I am following along with Ron Moore on "Back to the Bible"
I get their emails. I write out the verse and what I observe and what it means to me. and a prayer. I also listen to their radio program and do a study and notes on that also. one of my goals is to be in the word daily and this is how I plan to make sure I do. If I have to add more notes say on one of the references I just add in a extra page. At the end of the yr, I store them in a 3" franklin covey storage binder. So this system is working out great for me.

So these are the three binders I am using. My retro one, my daily planner/journal, and my bible study, and etc. journal. I use and just love all three. 
As we all know it take a while of trying different ways of journalling and planner till we find what really works for us. This last yr has certainly been the case for me. But I am happy and content with what I have now.  
As I sit here at my computer it is snowing like crazy here in Idaho. Praying. Snow, then Ice is coming and then warn temps and flooding. May be power outage! Pray for all of us here. Thank you!
May you all be safe this winter! Gods blessings!


DIY retro Vintage binder.

 I bought this binder for again $0.75c. It was all vinyl and way to big, But I got it for the 1 1/2" rings. So I ripped it all apart down to the cardboard. Cut it down to the size I wanted and made a cover for it. I just love these colors also.  It will be a little history of the era I grew up in. The picture of the wedding dress is a pic of my pattern I still have. I made it for our wedding in 1960. Almost 57 yrs together now. It will be fun to make some creative pages for it.

My granddaughter and I make a cover for her own binder too. I forgot to take pictures, ugh.
I have no plans to make any more of these, but will now just enjoy working in them.
Have a blessed Christmas!
For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
    And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace

    will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
    for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
    will make this happen!

Isaiah 9:6-7
