Topic: Bible Journaling
Many years ago I did a devotional called 'The Fruit of the Spirit is bananas' in which each of the fruits is assigned a real fruit to represent it. The only ones I can still remember are bananas=joy, apples=goodness, grapes=self-control, and kiwi=meekness. Also, the basket that holds them all = love.
So, for the fruits of the Spirit scripture (Galations 5:22-23) I created a drawing using these plus other fruits to round out the fruit basket.
These include orange=faithfulness, plum=forbearance, cherries=patience, lemon=peace, and pear=kindness. After the fruits were drawn in ink, I wrote the fruit's word inside the outline and then colored it.
The word LOVE is used as a weaving on the basket.
I colored the outline letters with a color-blending going from turquoise to green to orange to purple.
I grew up on the King James Bible and now use the NIV. The scriptures that I have memorized are in my head in KJV so I am torn, sometimes, on that version to use in the journaling.
So far, I am using NIV since that is the translation of Bible I am working in. I may break out of this occasionally when the KJV is so overwhelmingly 'right' to my brain. More than likely, these will be things like the 23 Psalm and the Lord's Prayer. We'll see.
