What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?

Thanks for all the visits and great comments last week!
It gave me a big boost!
My sister Peggy and I were talking about all the
great craft spaces on WOYWW,
how much space and room to organize, etc.
But what I like best, and why I keep posting
is because of all the wonderful encouraging women I meet
(there's hardly any men, I notice)!
It matters not if you're messy,
or neat and super organized,
just be honest and show your desk.
No judgments!
So go and visit the weekly party that is WOYWW
and have yourself some fun!

So here's my super chaotic desk again
with a project I just started.
I bought some cheap Japanese fans,
put gesso on it, and drew on it,
tracing the Japanese lady
and putting flower designs.
I don't know what it's going to look like when it's finished,
and I'm just trying out the flower collage on it
to see if it fits.
And here's my journal for today,
not very clear I'm afraid.
If you can't see, Jesus is leaning over a boy or girl
who seems to be in deep trouble.
Hebrews 2:18 reads
Because He Himself was tested through what
He had suffered,
He is able to help those who are being tested.

This is a comfort to me.
Whatever we go through, we can depend on Jesus
to be there for us, even if we do not understand.
