So, I am creating a journal as I work my way through this Lenten season.
I have not observed Lent so closely as I am this year. I guess it is because of my OLW, which is Less. I am using it to push for "Less of me and more of Him (God)".
Typically I do not share my faith here on my blog as I have kept it mostly to the various crafty projects that I do. But this time three things are lining up in one project for me:
1. One Little Word
2. Crafting - and learning brushscript
3. My faith
Each day, I am reading a passage over at shereadstruth.com and using that as a springboard for what goes into my journal that day. This concentrated time reading my Bible and reflecting on what I believe has nourished my soul. And it is pushing me to think more about Him and less about me.
Knowing that I wanted to document this journey in some way, I decided to create a journal of sorts. And that led me to think of art journaling, which I seem to have no time for lately. And that led me to think of how I want to learn brush script and use watercolours more. You see how my thoughts run away with me?
So I jumped right in. I am clearly a beginner and I have no specific training in brush script, but I am ready to learn and practice. To start, I am just writing and getting the feel of a brush in my hand and watercolour paint as my medium. I'm not going to lie...it is trickier than I thought it would be. But I am doing it anyway.
Right now I am just playing. I hope that over the 40 days of Lent, I will see this skill grow. And I know that my faith will be strengthened leading up to the wonderful season of Easter.
Are you celebrating Lent in some way?
Or are you currently learning a new skill?
