Take Three Thursday | Time Capsule Bible

The city of Lucas, Texas, put together a time capsule this year, and the church we attend contributed a journaling Bible to it. The pastor asked members of the congregation to add journaling or notes to the people who will read it when the time capsule is opened in forty years. There were a variety of entries, mostly prayers and notations of favorite scriptures.

I illustrated my favorite scripture (Jeremiah 29:11) using a variety of yellow letter stickers and a pink pen.

Robbie simply made a  note of his favorite Psalm.

I also illustrated Psalm 33:12, re-creating a similar patriotic illustration in my journaling Bible.

I wonder if people will still be using journaling Bibles forty years from now, or will everything continue to move more and more to all digital so that printed Bibles will be hard to find?

Joining in with Mary-Lou's Take Three Thursday, a meme designed to help us notice more of the ordinary of our lives. What are you noticing this week?


  1. Melissa glad you joined in today with TTT ... I hope that there are always printed books. I know you are doing your part to keep the illustrated & journaling Bibles alive.

  2. I have two Bibles I use at home regularly, and one on Kindle that I use when we travel. I much prefer printed books to e-books which is why I use the public library regularly. Like Mary-Lou, I hope printed books never go out of style.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
