WOYWW: Gifts

Today's post is all about gifts.
I finally received my One World, One Heart
prize from Sunshine Shelle.
I'll have to find a nice spot for
my new painting.
Right now, it is above my planter
full of drawing stuff so I can appreciate it
every time I use my desk.
Isn't it wonderful?
Even if it's raining outside,
I'll have the beach scene to cheer me up!
And here's one of the canvases I've been working on.
It's still not finished.
Julia asked how I know when my work is finished.
I guess it's when I like it already!
Because if not, then I have to work on it
some more, or cover it up with wall putty
to start over!

This morning I was working on my journal.
As usual I do not have enough space (sigh!)
and my journal was on top of my canvas.
I read in John 16:12 that Jesus
told His disciples that
He had much more to tell them.
He was talking about giving them a gift,
the Holy Spirit.
By giving us the Holy Spirit to guide us
to all truth, He was enabling us
to be qualified to have a share
in our inheritance in the Kingdom of light.
(Col. 1:10-12)

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday
is celebrating it's 2 year anniversary!
Amazing! And we're going to have a
"Pass it forward" gift exchange.
What a lot of fun that's going to be!
Join Julia and the gang
for a lot of peeking at work desks and

  13. What a beautiful canvas you’ve made Patsy, I love the colours you’ve used, so bright and cheery.

    And how lucky are you to win such an amazing prize. It’s such a beautiful picture but I fear that having that hanging where I can always see it would depress me by reminding me that I ‘don’t’ have a figure like that one. Lol!
    Just kidding, I would love to see that every time I walked into my craft room, so enjoy you’re your beautiful prize to the full.

    Happy WOYWW and …………….
    Happy Crafting
