Making Bookmarks

The kids and I have been reading. I saw the need to make some bookmarks. We created some doodles and collages, then laminated them. Here's what I created:

Coloring

This drawing was started a long time ago. It was so large that it has taken me a while to finish. I have kept it safe since 2006, slowing iterating on it.

Notes

Made some notes while studying this morning. Reading: Tanakh (New JPS), Romans (Passion Translation) and NLT.

Reading: New Creation Realities

One of the main things I've been doing the past few weeks is reading "New Creation Realities" by E.W. Kenyon. It was written in the 1940's, but felt like reading some futuristic book. Everything felt fresh to comprehend.

One of the main ways I would read it, is by going to the local coffee shop, after dropping the kids off at school. I would hang out there for an hour before commuting into work. 

I filled almost every page and passage with a highlighter and added some photos below. Finally finished!

Authority on Panel

Finished this the other day and thought, "That's a crazy mess, but it is done."

Been sitting in it for a year, waiting for it to be finished.

Today, I was surprised to see it on the wall and thought, "Woah. Cool!"

Normal

Don’t let anybody brainwash you or put you in a box. Be open-minded, sensitive, discerning, fearless, and for the love of everything that’s good in life, be free to question everything that’s been taught and presented out there, and have and make up your own mind.

I believe that we all came from love, and because of that we tend to look for love and relationship with people. And because of that we a lot of times tend to bend our thoughts and ourselves to match other people’s ideas, views, and opinions as to not lose those relationships and for fear of being the odd person outside looking into the circle everybody is in. But let me tell you... Having your own mind, and being comfortable in your own skin; to disagree with ideas and things that maybe everybody around you is agreeing with; it’s freakin’ beautiful my friend, and it’s called being yourself.
