Abide in God and Bear Fruit

I am in an online Bible Journaling group on SCS and each month we have a theme to focus on. The theme for our January Bible Art Journaling (BAJ) projects is "Abide".

Those who remain in me, and I in them, 
will produce much fruit. 
For apart from me you can do nothing. 
John 15:5b

Earlier in the passage we note that Jesus is talking about being the "true grapevine" and His Father (God) is the gardener. Unfortunately, I didn't have any grape/grapevine stamps to use. Instead I decided to go with a different kind of fruit - apples.

Because it's important to me not to cover the Scripture, I used a piece of vellum for the tip in. When the tip in is turned (like a page) I can easily read the verses.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I finally found a bible for journaling, and like you, do not want to cover up the scripture. This is a great idea- love your page. Your idea to use apples is awesome!

Love your page Jeanette - and the fact that you put it on vellum so you can read the words - I love that you don't obscure the print in your Bible journaling

Jeannette... I love you beatiful, encouraging and inspiring page. The vellum is always great way of adding page on the Bible. LOVE those big letters, too. Thank you for sharing it!
