Bible Journaling with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}
Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing a fun start-to-finish video and bible journaling entry. 

I really enjoy using my 
PS stamps and dies to make the Word come alive. It really helps me remember what I've read, letting the Truth permeate my mind, heart, and soul. 

Today's verse comes from Exodus 27. I mention in the video about going to Israel and seeing the olive press machine- it was so large! It amazes me what people back then used and created- this machine is high-tech (on a whole other level! LOL!)! I share 3 photos of the olive press, but I don't explain what you are looking at... so here's a short explanation: the large circle rock is pushed around by a donkey to make the machine work; there are three very large and heavy stones hanging from a wooden beam- the donkey makes these move up and down to press the olives; each stone is used for each level of pressing (i.e. the first stone is used for the first pressing, stones one and two are used for the second pressing, etc). I hope this makes sense- if not then we will have to visit Israel together;) I can't wait to go back!!! 

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS!

I loved seeing the Olive press of antiquity. We visited the Olive Oil farm in Arizona and it was fascinating. Your Bible journalling is great also.
