We are God's Garden!

Today is Wednesday and it's time to show off 
our work desk again!
 Here's a shot of my messy work area.
Can you believe that this is already a
cleaned up version?
I spent some time culling my magazines 
and newspapers strewn on the floor
during the weekend because
I was fed up with having to either 
step on them or over them!
 This is my journal page for today.
1 Corinthians 3:9 is one of my
favorite bible verses.
I like to think of myself as one of
God's flowers in His beautiful garden!
Of course if we are to bloom,
the gardener prunes us.
Removing dead leaves, 
brown spots and the like,
things that suck away life,
will enable new life to sprout.

It's like cleaning up and organizing!
You see new things,
(oh, so this is where it got to!),
you get a new perspective,
you feel freer, livelier,
more inspired,
ready to do more!

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!

  1. Hi Patsy! I agree, we are indeed God's garden or I must say wonderful creations. Each of us has his/her own unique beauty and role to discover and share.

  10. Hi Patsy - I like the thought of being a flower in God's garden. I love this saying that God's love is like the Amazon river coming down to water one flower - so this analogy appeals to me. Thank you again for linking up with my winsome Wednesday bloghop. I love coming back over for a visit with you
    God bless

  22. It is good to remember that to grow and flourish we do need to prune things from our lives that prevent us from doing just that. I adore your work. It is lovely and inspiring.

  23. Loving your desk this week and Lol to the fact that the picture was taken after a clear up.
    I must admit that when I tidy it doesn’t take it long to get back to the same state either, so you’re not alone.
    I just love that journal page…….the colours are stunning and it makes me smile.

    Thanks for stopping by this week and…….
    Happy Crafting!
