WOYWW 131: I Will Give You Rest

Wednesday means showing off!
In my case it means displaying my disaster zone!
I've really grown so comfortable 
with you people!!!!
I know you'll accept me as I am
and still be encouraging!

I've got my journal on top of a canvas I'm working on.
Another commission, yehey!
I covered the canvas with pages from 
my daily meditation guide, so that my canvas
will be fully permeated with God's word!

Then I will layer that up with wall putty
showing only a little bit of the words beneath.

Here is my journal for today.
The words are from Matthew 11:
"Come to me all you who labor and who carry 
heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke and learn from me,
and I will give you rest."

We all have burdens, no escape.
To be alive means we have some concern or other.
But if we learn to give our burdens to the Lord,
take His yoke,  which is a wooden beam used to 
enable two animals to pull a load together,
He is always there to help and lead us to a safe place! 

I know that during the Christmas season,
many get stressed and need rest!
It really shouldn't be that way!
That's why I always start my day praying 
and writing in my journal!

for my wonderful diorama in an Altoids can.
The theme is shopping and she inserted a coin too! 

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