#31daysof_____: Day Nine

Day Nine

 

Slip away from the hustle & bustle to find a quiet place to read your devotional. 

How does today’s verse impact you?

Carving out some solitary moments in our day is a challenge. 

Take a moment to reflect on your verse today and how it might ground you in your interactions with others today. 

Chasing Quiet Day 9: Seek It

Bible Quilt your selected verse:  Let the process of writing slow you down a little bit today. As we read and write scripture, it sinks in a bit deeper and we become more familiar with the cadence of God’s Word.

You may even be surprised to discover that you’re memorizing scripture through Bible Quilting!

Even though we think we’re embellishing through stickers or washi tape, the Word is actually being written upon our hearts as we linger and decorate our #biblequiltjournal pages.

The Leaves Are Turning Into Turkeys!

Oh good gravy!! I just love everything about the Fall season. Even when I was young, I have always been captivated by the trees changing colors. And I have forever been picking up fallen leaves and pressing them for projects. Even in college I was home on break and scavenging for these treasures with aspirations of creating wonderful things with them.

And I did! My sweet family members were the recipients of many leaf-pressed bookmarks and animals created with leaves. The whole process was enjoyable to me. Now that I have children, it has been passed down to them too. I asked them to make me some turkeys with leaves, and look what cuteness I got!!   

As you go through this season, and are looking up into the trees with all their glory, make sure to take time to look down too.  A friend dear to my heart once said that if you slow down and really look, you will see that even God’s “litter” is so beautiful. 

When I pause to take a closer look at things in nature, it brings my focus back to God; a really great place to be!

Slow down with me, and enjoy all there is to see!


  

As our society begins its annual press-in of stress during our holidays, stay connected to the wonder and awe that is found everywhere, even in God’s “scraps”
