For around 3 months we have been at home during the Covid 19 pandemic. It has been a scary/depressing time. At first, not much was known about it, except that it was very contagious and deadly. I used the extra free time at home to do some art work everyday. I began to follow Shawn Petite's lead in making a calm art journal to focus my mind on good things. As I started working on it, I realized that most of the words of the word prompts in the journal were the same as the "Fruit of the Spirit".
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
As I painted each page, I would think of the word and what it meant for me. I also looked up the word in the Biblegateway website and read and meditated on the scripture for that word. It really was a great way to focus on the Lord. Through this exercise He gave me the peace I needed to get through this troubled time. Here are the pages in the journal.
