For those of you who haven't started yet...ITS NOT TOO LATE! Why not make FEBRUARY a month of Gratitude and join us for that month? Here are the verses we will be using beginning next Sunday:

Before we get to today's verse and artwork, I want to share the filled in Gratitude Art Journaling Pages I completed the journaling in for last week, already in my binder!:
LAST WEEK HERE
This week's verse is showcased so well in the Sunday Scripture Design Team's Artwork:
Anita (Artist Trading Card):
This verse is a favorite of many, and I am included in the many!! It reminds us that it's the LORD who is our strength and shield and that when we TRUST in HIM, we are helped! How many times do we go through something difficult and get our eyes so focused on the problem, that we forget where our strength and help come from? We need to TRAIN our eyes to look up FIRST, and to keep our focus on HIM. It is then we can find purpose in our difficulties, and our burdened hearts can through prayer, supplication...and THANKSGIVING be helped! So this week we again focus our eyes on HIM and give THANKS for the blessings that are so many we can't possible count them....but we are certainly trying!
I have decided to make this week a DOODLING week for my pages. I have started off with just our verse stamped onto a white piece of cardstock, trimmed and added to these 2 Simple Stories papers. Each night when I am journaling what I am grateful for I will spend a little time doodling with different sized black WATERPROOF markers (I may add glimmer mists before you see them again next Sunday, so I'm preparing with my doodling in waterproof markers):
