February Take Me Deeper

In the month of February all of our lessons and journal prompts were about love.  Love is also my Logos 365 word for the year so there was a lot of love on my pages.  The first one is my calendar and logos page for the month. The logos page has a definition of love from a sermon. "Love is a decision of the mind to meet the needs of others for their good, whether they accept or appreciate it or not." So often I have not acted loving toward someone when I knew that they wouldn't appreciate my efforts.  You love to love, not for a "reward".

The first week our study was about God's love and used John 3:16 as the focus verse. I collaged a world, a heart and a cross with the scripture on the top. On the other side of the page I used the words to one of my favorite songs to sing to myself, "How He Loves".

 Week 2 was about loving God. Love the Lord your God with all of you...heart, soul, mind, and strength. I played with Gelatos a bit for the background, then I wrote the words of the verse on cardstock, painted and collaged them on the page and doodled around the words.  The girl had some problems and I ended up having to repaint her face about 3 times.  The first one was the best, but I'm learning how different mediums work with others and some don't work together. Hopefully I can remember the lessons I learned from this page

Week 3 was about loving yourself.  I kind of struggled with this one, not because I have trouble loving myself, but because I think that sometimes too much emphasis is put on self.  I went with becoming a new creation when we are in Christ because He makes all things new.  I used a butterfly because of the metamorphosis of its life symbolizes a complete change. 

Week 4 was on loving others and is definitely something I am working on this year. I made the most important thing to be the center of the page because I really can't do this love thing on my own, I have to love God and rely on His strength to Love others. I used expanding lines to show how love should grow exponentially. This page isn't finished as I will keep adding names around the heart.

Many blessings, Zuda Gay
