8/25/17 PRECIOUS BIBLE JOURNALING: A GARDEN ENCLOSED
I got a new Bible journal and have been asking that my time
of scripture, prayer, ponder and expressive art be inspired
and intimate with Him where we do it together. I have been

secret place, we are under the shadow of His wings, kept
safe. So I put shadows at the bottom of the letters HIDDEN
and then also put a shadow on the bubble circle. And then I
remembered that the Lord had given me the interpretation of
the eclipse this week regarding Him covering us with His
shadow! It all came full “circle”.

It's You and me alone God. You and me alone. Here it's
You and me alone God You and me alone You've hedged me in
with skin all around me.
