Lenten journal 2021

This year I’m creating daily art, following along with a website list of Scriptures describing WHO Jesus is – and creating art in a handmade journal. Join me if you wish – no need to create what I do, just come over and post your art in our Facebook group! Tell us what Jesus speaks to you in the scriptures – either using the link below or anything God leads you to. (I’m doing the list in random order, so do whatever works for you.)
