I am attempting to keep a journal. Some pages are about my day, many are contemplative. I try to incorporate art, sketching, etc. This entry grew around the picture of the loaves and fish.


::tore the veil
::rose from the grave and ascended to Heaven where he sits at the right hand of God
::turned water into wine
::fed 5,000 with just a few loaves and fishes - and had left overs
::said that the meek shall inherit the earth - they are blessed
::drove demons from the possessed into swine
::said "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."
::upturned the money changers tables at the Temple
::raised his friend Lazarus from the dead
::made a new covenant with his body and his blood
::taught the rabbis at 13
::carried the cross - bruised, beaten, torn flesh, bleeding - through the streets of Jerusalem
::lived 33 years but gave us life eternal
::said that God would provide


::ate with prostitutes and tax collectors
::said that for everything there is a season - to laugh, cry, be born, and die
::walked on water
::healed the hemorrhaging woman based only on her faith
::rode into Jerusalem to palm strewn streets on a donkey
::appeared to his friends on the road to Emmaus so that they may truly see
::Took the burden, even though he wanted Abba to take it away
::told of The Prodigal Son and The Good Samaritan
::took water from the unclean woman at the well, much to her surprise
::was worshipped by Magi and shepherds alike, and followed by a star
::took the most brash of the disciples and turned him into the leader of the church
::let Judas betray him
::ascended the mountain to speak with Abraham and Elijah
::said "Look at the lilies of the field. Even Solomon in all of his glory couldn't measure up to their beauty."
::resisted temptation from the dark prince while fasting in the desert
::taught us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Very nice Erin. I too try to keep journals. I probably have ten to twelve just laying around the house hoping that someday my children may pick one up and read something I wrote about them in one of my moments of rage. I love my children, but sometimes, its hard to like them. I have recently started a new path in life and have been keeping a daily journal of my emotional ups and downs in a days time. I don't know what if anything I will accomplish by doing this, but it feels like the right thing to do at the time. All of your He's were inbred into my mind at a young age as well as many more. Great Post!
