My husband is such a good gift giver. He knows me well . . . maybe I’m not such a mystery. A favorite and thoughtful gift that he and my daughter gave me for Christmas is a book called “Praying in Color” by Sybil MacBeth. It is a book written. not by a self proclaimed artist, but by someone who loves to doodle. The author shares that doodling a persons name while they were praying for them helped their focus. If you are a prayer warrior . . . I applaud you! I do love to pray and talk with my Creator however I’ve found that I feel closest to Him when I’m creating and sometimes I can get distracted. This concept was perfect for me.
If you are an artist, like to pray or just want to check out the book . . . it’s an amazing gem.
I thought I’d share with you a few pages from my prayer journal thus far. My pages are a little more detailed than the authors but a similar process. This was a top read for me.
