Prayer Journal, Cupcakes

Hello!   I hope you all are having a safe and happy summer!

Here’s what’s inspired me this week…hot pockets!

Prayer Journal, Pockets

I’m sure I will share this in a video at some point, but in the meantime, I will just tell you about them.  I bought these little cuties at Hobby Lobby, but was disappointed with them after I got them home because they really did not fit in my structured prayer journal format of my Prayer Closet Organizer’s weekly worksheets.

I’ve been holding on to them ever since, hoping there would come a day when I could use them.

A while back, I accidentally skipped a page in my prayer journal.  The washi tape must have stuck to the page behind it so when I went to decorate a new worksheet, it made me skip a page.  Originally, I wrote “void” across that page and went on with my new pages.

BUT then, I realized that I could decorate that page, too, by adding scrapbook paper. SO, I made a side pocket on each page, and added my new store-bought pockets to the scrapbook paper.  I love it!

Now, what to put in my pockets???….hmmmm….stay tuned…

On to the video:

See you next weekend, and in the meantime, happy prayer journaling!!!

  1. I totally get what you are saying about racism having most of my family from one of the states in the south. My Mother was born in Columbus, MS and my Dad in West Virginia. My grandparents on both sides were the worst, they hated anyone that was black and would have kicked them off of their lawn if a poor person happened to make that mistake. My Mother, after all she saw growing up there hated racism! We would have been punished if she any of us say the “N” word and I still have that embedded in my mind. But I am going to get that book because with all the hate going both ways in these days I’ll admit I have been fighting and praying about my feelings towards these people that hate white people and wish us dead. It’s in a difficult time that we are living right now, and it worries me because my grandchildren are growing up in in it. How is it going to affect them? Anyway, I’m so glad you spoke on that subject because it has been on my heart since all of this started. But I do believe that Obama is firing up the haters and making it worse for some reason. I could go on about the hate for us as Christians and also we’re white. It’s just so difficult Gina, but I turn it over to God whenever I get those thoughts. He’s aware and He can handle it! God bless!

    1. Linda, thanks for sharing. Our enemy is Satan, and he wants to divide and conquer. What I loved about the scripture that Dr. Anderson highlighted in 1 Corinthians 12 was that it provided the cure for division – giving honor to those who lack it. Let’s continue to pray that God will heal our nation from all forms of racism. God bless, ~gina
