Spiritual Weather, Lots of Desserts, and Fancy Water

Hello friends,

Work has been super busy so I haven't had a chance to post in a few weeks.  I did get this Bible Journal page done this weekend.  It fits Chris' All Kinds of Weather theme at **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* as the page has it raining down Truth and Light which is a spiritual weather.. but still weather.  It is also kind of foggy in my scene - caused by lack of patience these days.  I definately need to be in my Bible more!

I had already done the stripes on the page before and never liked them, but finished it off with a bit of a scene and now I really like it. Some beautiful words on this scripture.  Ones I needed to read and pay attention too as I have been super focused on work (lots of people out sick so we are all having to do some extra work to cover) and do not have my life priorities straight. 

I went to dinner at Central Restaurant in Montgomery, Alabama with two of my work friends last week.  We all had dessert. - one of the best things at that restaurant.  The dessert was so pretty I wanted to share it and the cool way they served water (in old wine bottles).  I am also linking this post up and sharing it with those darling T-day girls who meet up each week to share our drink related posts over at Elizabeth's blog.  

This was my dessert:  pistachio cheesecake with a chantilly cream, toasted pistachios, and blueberry compote,  Yum!
Jake's mile high lemon meringue pie with lemon curd and torched meringue. 
Sweet potato creme brulee with ginger snap cookies and dried meringue. 
It was an adventure for sure.  The sweet potato creme brulee was the best. 

Hope you are having a great week so far, happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, and many hugz to all who visit here.  I appreciate you and I am thankful for your time and encouragement.  



  1. Those desserts look to die for. I don't know which one I would pick. I might have to sample all 3-smile. And sounds like life has been busy. I hope you get some down time over Thanksgiving. Your Bible page came out great and is perfect for Chris' challenge at AJJ. Thanks so much for joining us. It is amazing how good art can make you feel when life is busy, isn't it? I hope you have a wonderful T and Thanksgiving holiday and week ahead. Hugs-Erika

  2. Good morning-brrrr a cold one here today. I love your journal page very much-I use the journal art pages for my stress allot-really helps and I am mentally refreshed after
    I am not a dessert person (more into snacks haha) but wow these desserts look fabulous! My pick is the cheesecake-first and then that meringue pie.
    Happy T and Thanksgiving hugs Kathy

  3. Your Bible journal page is very pretty and the psalm very inspiring. Oh, those desserts! The presentation is spectacular, almost too pretty to eat. I don't know which I would have chosen. Happy T Day

  4. Love your journal page. I have a Bible journal but am afraid of ruining the pages. I may have to pull it out and give it another try.
    your desserts look amazing! Way too pretty to eat but I bet they were yummy!
    Happy Tea Day and Happy Thanksgiving,

  5. I love how the mountains in your painting are reflected in your psalm. I loved the deer and how you made this entry feel like a holy dwelling place. Thank you for sharing yhis with us at Art Journal Journey using Chris's theme. It turned out great.

    Wow, those desserts. I'd love to try the mile high lemon meringue. The cheesecake sounds good, too. I love how the old bottles were on the table filled with water, too.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful bible journal page, your desserts, and your water with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, too.

  6. Wow those are some beautiful desserts. Glad you were able to go out and enjoy it with work friends.

  7. Hi there Nancy! I always love the inspiration with your Bible pages! The colors are gorgeous and I love your idea about the "raining/pouring words" which are beautifully reminders that grab attention! Thanks for the inspiration friend! P.S The desserts look totally amazing!

  8. Oh my, that food looks soooooooooooo good, wow! our journal page is beautiful, thanks so much for joining us at AJJ. Happy T Day, hugs,Valerie

  9. The background of your page is fab!
    Those desserts look too wonderful to be eaten.
    Happy T-Day!

  10. I'm feeling full just looking at those tasty desserts!

  11. what a lovely journal page . Those desserts are all so beautifully done and look very decadent! good thing I'm not so much into sweets so I'd be happy for just a bite to taste:) Happy T day!

  12. What a beautiful journal page. I like the idea of 'spiritual weather' and raining down truth and light. I too need to be lead by God's truth and light. It's good to remember that. I sometimes stick verses on my computer monitor. I think this week it will be this verse. Thank you.
    Oh those desserts! They look soooo scrummy! I don't know which I would have chosen. I think the high lemon meringue pie.
    Happy T-Day,
    Have a great week,

  13. A super journal page Nancy, I like the scene you have created.
    Those puddings look yummy, especially the mile high lemon meringue.
    I hope things calm down for you at work.

  14. What a clever idea to interpret changing weather!
    Your dessert looks very delicious.
    Have a great time xx

  15. I have really got to get more Bible journaling done - this is a great example of how to create a page. Do you clear gesso first? You created a beautiful scene for my theme at AJJ and those are wonderful words - Thank you.
    Oh My! Those desserts - Sweet potato creme brûlée sounds good but I love pistachio too - no matter if I was full I would just have to have one! Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

  16. Beautiful Bible page Nancy, I love the scene you created at the bottom! And WOW the desserts look delicious!! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    Hugs, Tammy

  17. It is an awesome Bible journal page and the scene you added at the bottom of the page looks beautiful. Thank you for linking to Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
