WOYWW 132: Turn to God


It's been a busy week,
but in spite of all the wrapping,
working on WIPs,
and general tidying up,
here I am, ready with my workdesk,
this early!
I do not know how Julia has managed to 
get me and and so many others
so committed to showing our desks
every Wednesday!

On my desk is a card I finished 
for my pastoral leader in my community.
Her name is Joy and she really lives
up to her name.
I am truly blessed to have her
taking care of me!

And here is my canvas and a drawing of 
a dancing lady. 
I have not placed her yet as I am still
figuring out the other elements in this piece.
The theme is "Delight in the Lord
and He will give you the desires of 
your heart."

I am thinking of someone 
playing a violin, but I do not know
if my drawing skills are up to it!

 And here is my journal for today.
I view God as like our mother and father.
He loves us and wants the best for us.
It is very difficult to envision God
as faithful and compassionate
if we do not have parents who 
always love us no matter what! 

God allows bad things to 
happen to us sometimes,
but it is ALWAYS for our good:
to teach us, to enable us,
to help us become compassionate,
to bring growth, to make us turn to Him...
It is interesting to read Isaiah 45,
because we can never really 
understand the depth and breadth of God
if we do not read and meditate about Him.


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

  6. Good morning; thought I'd pop in to say Hi quickly. Hope you have a fabulous and creative week. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us today. It's important to remember Christ at this time of the year as the world tries hard to distract us from the true reason for celebration.

  17. Beautiful work as always! Love the dancing lady extra much. She looks like she'll dance her way to the right placement. I LoL'd at your wondering how Julia has us show our desks. I wouldn't let my neighbors see that mess and somehow Julia has me showing the whole world!

    Happy Woyww from #1 :D

  26. I wished my desk looked like yours:) Simply Beautiful! The more I have been challenged, the more time I have spent with the Father, building relationship, learning from Him. There are times I wish I could learn without challenges:)

  27. I love looking at your desk each week! You wrote of thinking of God as both Father and a mother. I recently finished a Beth Moore story on the Psalms of Ascent and there is a scripture that speaks of His love being like that of a mother. (I can't recall the reference right now.)

    Thank you for sharing with us each week!

    Blessings,
    Joan

  30. You are so lovely and inspiring. I feel so blessed when I see your art and read your blog. It is a breath of fresh air and it makes me feel very grateful. Your art is very lovely. I love the picture of the girl and I'm excited to see you put it all together.
    My desk is so cluttered right now, I have no room to work on anything, probably why I'm not getting anything done. :)
    Have a blessed and wonderful week!
    Merry Christmas!
