Tickell Expressions

Monday, 26 October 2015


Hello Friends,

I am subscribed to Journal 52 and this week's (43) prompt is FOCUS.

I started by writing the word on my page in extra big letters on Saturday. Since I have been taking a Tangle-Doodle class locally, I knew I wanted to do some kind of doodling, either around or inside the letters. Yesterday (Sunday) I packed up my journal and pens and took them to church. I often take simple art supplies with me, but don't always use them.

The worship band started with "Majesty" and I was on my feet, my arms lifted high. I kept picturing an enormous crown in my wide-spread hands. By the next song I was sketching it into my page, resting on the word FOCUS. Another song - "Holy, holy, holy" and I was singing my heart out. More songs came, focusing on the glory and majesty of our almighty, holy God. I repeated the word HOLY on the base of the crown.

This evening I played some worship tunes on my computer and started doodling, worshiping as I did so. I listened to some inspirational messages and doodled some more. I shaded the letters, crown and doodles and finished off with a background made with a blue Gelato.

Thanks for stopping by. I am so glad you did. Did you know that God is always thinking about you? You are the very reason he came in the flesh, died a cruel death and then was resurrected again. And here is what he thinks about you:

You are beautiful and you are loved. So very, very loved.

Blessing hugs,
