At Easter last year I received a gift from a friend. It is a beautiful book of Psalms, full of calligraphy and designs to color alongside the text of the Psalms. In these days, the reading, reflection, and coloring are a source of calm and faith. My friend did not know how great the need would be as we approach Easter this year. An Easter when we will worship and celebrate together but alone.
The introduction of the book speaks to the idea that coloring and art journaling plants the inspired words of scripture more deeply in the heart, reflecting our faith journey and becoming a way to remember what we are learning.
I hope in these days, you will find the prayers, the reflections, the meditation that gives you hope. I hope you journal your journey to remember all you learn in these days. That’s one thing I am trying to do… the real gift my friend gave me.
