What's on Your Work BED Wednesday!

I have been working on my bed
the past days as I am confined to rest
because of a bad cough.
So on my bed, you can see my journal,
bible, glue, a pair of scissors must be around somewhere,
papers to cut up and watercolor.
My paint and water are on the floor.

For those of you who asked,
yes I do journal everyday and
either paint or do collages.
I had more time today obviously.
The challenge was to make Jesus' hands
not look withered because he is healing the
man with the withered hand!

Today's reading is from Mark3:1-6.
Jesus asked the man with a withered hand to
"Stretch out your hand."

All of us have a withered something
we can stretch out to the Lord.
It can be a talent we haven't used,
a dream we've allowed to die,
a relationship destroyed by unforgiveness...

The good news is Jesus is asking us to
stretch it out to Him,
for healing, restoration,
to make it whole again.
We shouldn't lose hope.
There's always hope.

For more beds,
I mean desks,
neat and tidy,
chaotic and frenzied,
see Julia's Stamping Ground.

  29. Very nice journal and I wish I could be as committed to doing it everyday! Hope you feel better soon!

  30. Hi Patsy,
    You set me thinking about the heaps of different ways to use masks and stencils. Of course the sponge won't do what the air-brush does and vice versa, but there are so many different effects to create. Thanks for coming by.

  31. Well there's no stopping you is there!! I do hope your cough gets better soon - it's so tiring especially if it keeps you awake all night.

  32. Sorry to hear you are not well - hope you are better soon - love you work but do worry about you losing scissors in your bed - lol - God bless ~ Nicky 24

  33. Lovely painting, I wish I could draw nad paint like that!

  34. Hi, just found your blog. I too have had lots of problems with my header being really really blurry. Has anyone helped you with why, cause mine too was fine in the original file. Make sure your resting, but good work continuing to exercise your creative muscles. Love finding fellow livers of the Kre8ive Life.

  35. So sorry you are under the weather, I send prayers your way for a speedy recovery! Stretching out my heart to yours over the miles, sometimes the Lord just wants us quiet so we can hear Him and bless us.
    Blessings to you this week

  36. Sorry your feeling poorly. Hope you get better soon.
