In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.
Because of the way I have made my journal
it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.
I could not decide
what D word to use for these pages. Why was a decision
so hard to make? In fact I did the E pages before the D pages which is just as well as it turned out.
Psalm 37 has come up several times so I am now assuming it is my verse or verses of the year. So I looked at it again and found that verse 4 says: 'Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart'.
So there we have it: D is for delight
As I said, I did the E pages first and needed to extend the pages. I found a Teresa Collins folder in my scrapbooking stash and stuck it down on the D page so that it folded out for the E pages. That's the cream bit with black pattern.
I searched on Biblegateway for delight and also looked for quotes online. I thought the e.e.cummings quote sat well with the design on the page.
I printed out the other verses I found, cut them up and stuck them on the page. I don't really doodle but I thought I could always come back to this page and doodle round the verses with a black pen.
Here are my pages together.
And now for a sneak peek at E. Valerie has suggested we do vision boards for E. So I hvae chosen the word Envision for E. Valerie has made some suggestions to get you started on her Dig Deeper

Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019. Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post
. We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
