I'm a doodler. I doodle in my journal. I doodle in the margins of my Bible. Years ago, a very well-meaning older saint scolded me for this, for marring the Holy Word. I wasn't marring - I was illuminating! It helps me concentrate. And personally, I don't think the Lord minds :) So imagine my excitement when I found a book that encouraged creative expression as a tool to help you delve deeper into your prayer relationship with God.
I have a stack of these prayer journals, and I like to imagine that one day maybe my grandchildren and great grandchildren will see a written and illustrated journey of faith, prayers prayed, thanks given--and find their old granny's inability to spell hi-larious (no spell-checker with pen and ink).
One parting quote. I read it this morning in a devotional I use.
"But why do we have color? It seems to serve no practical purpose--at least none that scientists can discern. And why are there photoreceptors in our eyes that enable us to see it?
I believe that God's goodness is the point of His creation. He is 'good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works' (Psalm 145:9). He colored the world for our childlike delight. He's like that, you know."
