It is the Lord!

I'm running late for the party!
Paint Party Friday that is! 
But I did arrive eventually!

Here's page 2 of my altered book.
Again some painted collage elements
glued on to a wall puttied background.

A journal page from earlier in the week,
a passage from Luke 24 which reads,
"He opened their minds to understand the 
This is from the story of Cleofas and another disciple
on the road to Emmaus.
They did not realize that it was Jesus
explaining the scriptures to them!
But when He opened their minds to the 
scriptures, they were amazed! 
And from my journal today,
a passage from John 21:
"It is the Lord!"

Like the disciples, many of us
do not recognize the Lord
when He comes and visits us.
He may be in the form of a friend
who encourages,
a parent who corrects in love,
a letter from far away,
a blog post,

However, we may be sure that
if we keep our eyes and heart open,
He can open up the meaning of the 
scriptures for us!

sneak peek 


  1. Patsy, what a lovely post. Can you just imagine being taught by Jesus himself in the person? How right you are, He speaks to us in many different ways and opens our minds to understanding.

  8. Patsy, what a blessing your blog is! Your illustrations are beautiful and you have picked such wonderful scriptures to illustrate. I hope you are planning to publish all this in a book someday.

    The effort you put into these pages definitely shows! They shine!
    Happy PPF!!

  23. I love reading the Scriptures as God is showing me treasures and wisdom. I think it makes it much easier to be wise in our speech when we're filling our hearts with wisdom from the Word. As always your paintings full of truth and peace. Love that!

  25. wow! i was always amazed with papemelroti. i've heard before that it is a family business with all of you doing/designing the art work. i'm so glad you visited and commented on my site. now i am putting you in my blog list. thanks.

  26. Everytime I meet strangers who sometimes need "help", I must confess that I always, always battle with myself whether to attend to them or not. In this days... it can sometimes get really scary with how people do different modus operandi to get their victims... it's sad that the world is turning into this :(

    Beautiful arts as usual!
