  4. Reflect on the Verse: Spend some time reflecting on the verse and what it means to you. You can write down your thoughts or use art to express your feelings.
  5. Create the Page: Use your art supplies to create a page that reflects your thoughts and feelings about the verse. You can use lettering, doodles, or illustrations to create a beautiful and meaningful page.
