Not sure where to begin? Today I'm sharing some ideas:
- Let It Bloom. Nothing says spring quite like floral, so bringing them into your journaling can be a great way to celebrate spring. Use watercolors for soft pastels or go bright and vibrant. Stickers are a great way to bring in flowers as well.
- Religious Easter Symbols. There are so many great Easter symbols straight from the Bible that we can incorporate into our journaling. From the three crosses on a hill to the crown of thorns, these are all perfect additions to our Easter journaling.
- Mainstream Easter Symbols. In addition to the traditional religious symbols, I love bringing in more mainstream symbols too. Add some eggs or a bunny for some fun.
- Butterflies. Butterflies shout spring to me, a reminder of the change of seasons and brand new life.
Scriptures to Journal (Easter)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? ...
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
And they will mock him and spit on him, and flog him and kill him. And after three days he will rise.
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
Scriptures to Journal (Springtime)
Song of Solomon 2:11-12
For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; ...
For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
