Paper Bag Devotional Journal – A Servant’s Heart – by Esther Asbury

Good Sunday morning and Happy Valentine’s Day!

We have an entry to share today that Esther created in her paper bag journal and the subject, on this Valentine’s Day, is dealing with having a servant’s heart.

Esther created a pocket into which she has inserted tags with verses, all dealing with the subject of serving.

The verses are from a variety of stamp sets, all linked below in the supply list.

The pretty paper is from the Garland pad by Memory box, created as a Christmas pad, and I LOVE when these pads go well beyond the Christmas season.

The tags are easily made with the Tag Colletion die by Tim Holtz.

The pocket Esther created actually swings open, allowing the typewritten text of her study/devotional on the inside to be easily seen and read.

I urge you to click into Esther’s blog where you can read her mini study in its entirety.

Walking through life with a servant’s heart puts everything into a whole new perspective!

Thanks so much, Esther, for this lovely journal page and the reminder as to how Jesus would have us to walk, day by  day.
