I don't make it hard work by worrying excessively about spacing and other details. I draw horizontal lines on the paper and then I "just do it." I need these Biblical reminders so I cut myself some slack regarding the quality of the calligraphy.
You may have noticed, the letters in the last line of the Bible verse above had to be squeezed close together to fit on the paper. That's proof that the verse speaks truth. See what happens when I lean on my own understanding?
My spacing is off on this one too. The third and fourth lines are stretched out but still the message is strong and clear. Nothing I do can alter truths such as these.
I copied this verse for my mother after she found out that she had Parkinson's disease. I hoped it would provide her with comfort in spite of the fact that she knew the disease would and did progressively worsen.
I've made my own Christmas cards using calligraphy to write the message and to address the envelopes. I think I'll start using my pen again whenever I get the chance.
