Be Transformed in Pink :)

It has been a long couple of weeks....I have been worrying quite a bit, mostly over the crazy stuff at work. I decided to bring out my trusty journal and work with it.

I am one that has a really difficult time in 'digesting' worry...which I know is wrong to do on a constant basis. I was inspired to create these two pages after reading my new Art Journals magazine (Stampington and Co. publication).

I was also inspired by the Biblical verse of thinking about renewing your mind of unwanted thoughts and feelings:

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)

After your visit with me, go and stop by the other pink blogs at Beverly's place @ How Sweet the Sound (go and look at the current Saturday link).

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Pink weekend :)

Blessings to you!

Hi Karen
I think your journal pages are great. There's another verse which I love: "Do not worry about ANYTHING but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" Phillipians 4:6
Hugs, Rhondi

Thanks for Pink Saturday fun!

I am not covered up with pink here, at our cottage, The Painted Nest, LOL so that SAT was a stretch for me!! :) LOL

I am running behind on my comments as I have been traveling for work :)

Using words can help us digest those emotions and our fear...and let us praise and rejoice...

I do love your journal!!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philipians 4:8

I love your journal! Happy Pink Saturday!

Best regards, Lana
