“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” Luke 1:45 NIV. In this verse Mary believed what the angel had spoke to her. She was blessed not only in the act of believing, but because her promise would certainly be fulfilled. In your personal walk with the Lord are you listening to his voice and believing in his promises?
Creating a pocket within your advent journal
If you’re like me, you have a love for pockets and extra spaces to keep tags, notes and special reminders. I decided to create my own handmade pocket within my advent journal. First, start by measuring the dimensions of your pages. Next, take your desired patterned paper and fold it in half (making sure that both sides will fit into the measurement of your book). Use your paper trimmer or scissors to cut off excess paper.
Trim a second piece of patterned paper into a small strip and adhere to the top of your folded pocket page.
Use a sewing machine and white thread to stitch all three sides of the pocket page, left, bottom and right (being sure to keep the top portion open). Stitch page directly into book.
Place tags, paper clips and other notes and memorabilia into your stitched pocket page and enjoy!
