Summer Coffee Lovers Hop Day 2: I LOVE YOU A LATTE

Hey happy hoppers!  I'm back today to share another creation for the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop. I'm excited to share a spread from my Bible...Yes, I love bible journaling... A LOT!  It is such a comfort to me when I'm feeling lost, searching for answers, or in need of strength.  It helps me connect to His word in the most therapeutic way.  It helps me to understand. It reminds me to have patience.  It helps me to reflect...
Sooo...I prepped my iced coffee:  
Ummmm...That wasn't planned!  Or...Maybe HE planned it all along...  After I cleaned up my mess, I grabbed my iced coffee and with my puppies in tow, I headed up to my craft room...

This past week has been a heartbreaking one for many people around the world.   It has been so excruciatingly painful to hear about the horrible evil that hides in our midst.   I have spent much time reflecting and questioning WHY terrible things like this happen.  It lead me to find comfort and answers in His word...and so, I sat down at my craft space...To search for answers... I spread out my tools and went on a journey...and LANDED on the perfect page...
It made so much sense.  It was as if it was a reminder... He is always in control.  Yes, He is...Overflowing LOVE is what we need the most.    
As I worked...I read...and I worked some more...
...and in the end...I found comfort in His words...Overflowing with love...
The whole spread...
HE gave you the most precious instruments...Use them for GOOD...Use them wisely... #stophate #spreadlove #spreadpeace #forgivenessispower
Thanks so much for popping in to share my #faithjourney with me.  I'll be back again tomorrow with another project- COFFEE related, of course.
