Awhile back God gave me the thought of taking a Scripture verse to color/memorize (I’ve been coloring more often lately, and working on Scripture memorization). “The Name of the Lord is a strong tower…” is one that came to mind. That led to thinking about the fruit of the Spirit, which the Apostle Paul lists in the Book of Galatians. Tying the two verses together made sense to me, because the fruit of the Spirit describes the Lord. So I decided to try something, and this is what I came up with:
I am thinking of creating pages similar to this for anyone to color/memorize. Any comments? (Please keep them respectful and constructive.)
“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7,8 NLT)
Some of you may be wondering where my posts have been. I’ve been experiencing technical problems in getting posts published. Whether this is due to my internet connection (I live in a somewhat rural area, with lots of hills and valleys, so topography could certainly play a part) or something else, I don’t know. But I run into problems when WP is saving the draft–then the connection seems to “go in and out”. I don’t know how else to explain it. I may be typing merrily along, thinking the whole draft is being saved, only to find out later that just half of the post has actually been saved, and I need to input the rest all over again. That, my friends, causes much frustration, because I do want to publish posts!! Sometimes it produces enough frustration that I give up for the evening. It is also frustrating because I don’t know what to do about the situation.
Be assured that I do want to continue with the blog. I enjoy writing pieces and reading your comments. As the ripples in my header picture illustrate, the blog is a means to connection, and that means a lot to me.
