I joined Beth Moore's
"Siesta" Scripture Memory Team
as a simple goal for 2011.
Every 2 weeks we memorize
a personally selected scripture.
My first verse for 2011
is Psalm 65:11.
You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.
I don't know if I will make an art piece
for each scripture.
But it sure helps cement it in my mind,
when I engage myself
in the imagery of it.
And I do love the imagery
of this verse.
I see how it was true for me in 2010.
And I look forward to the truth of it for 2011.
He crowns the year with His goodness (not mine).
His paths (not mine) drip with abundance.
It is interesting to see what that looks like.
How His goodness blesses me ~ blesses each one.
How His path for me is unique ~ for each one is unique.
How He walks us through our seasons of joy and pain.
And how His goodness is in there amidst all of it.
And His path is walked not alone, but with Him on the journey.
Whereever it may lead.
It is not how I plan or expect.
I also made this piece
Bloom your sincere, genuine, authentic,
being planted in the dirt
invisibly growing roots
I'm learning to be kind and gentle
in my various seasons
