Here is my desk at work:
pure chaos!
Which fits my bible reading for this morning
which was about Jesus walking the water,
and telling the disciples
not to be afraid.
The disciples thought he was a ghost walking
on water!
For Jews, water usually signified chaos,
and so Jesus' dominion over water
signified that He was victorious over all
our troubles, anxieties and whatever
chaos is occurring in our lives right now.
Isn't that good news!

I had a Christmas giveaway two weeks ago,
and this flower collage brooch
goes to

Sorry to hear about your mother in law, but as you say, what a party she'll be having!! It must be like Christmas all the time in heaven, but better :)
Love, love, love your brooch, it's stunningly yummy :)

I'm making more flower collages in preparation of
One World One Heart.

  7. You have a wonderfully busy desk today. Congrats to Karen, winner of your beautiful brooch.

  8. I love that passage of scripture. On my bathroom mirror, I have written,"Take courage, Jesus is here! You don't have to be afraid!" based on that passage. It has calmed my heart in the midst of extreme chaos this past year.
