WOYWW: Is it I, Lord?

On my desk this morning, my journal.
You can see a really dirty rag, 
gel medium (I've been doing some pages 
for my altered book), a spray bottle,
paint, foam brushes that I haven't used yet,
and brushes of course! 

I did try to spend a longer time in prayer
this morning, as this is the Wednesday of Holy week.

I read about how Judas, who was chosen by Jesus
to be one of the Twelve Disciples,
betrayed him.

Jesus said, "Amen, I say to you,
one of you will betray me."
Judas answered, 
"Surely it is not I, Rabbi?"

"Surely it is not I, Lord?"
may be the cry of every heart 
at one time or another!
We are unfaithful,
prone to making God
and often cowardly,
unwilling to stand for
what is right!

Still we can depend on God to make 
"Beauty out of our ashes",
if we are willing to turn away from sin,
and turn to Him. 
Judas' tragedy is that he lost hope.
He could have become a great saint too
if he faced his sin,
asked forgiveness,
and turned back to God.

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

I love blog parties!

  11. I am in awe of that first photo. Of course, I'm in love with any altered photo I see, since I'm no good at anything like that.

    I am sorry the photos don't enlarge. In fact, I had NO idea, since it is apparently the way I save them not through Blogger's Picassa (or whatever it's called). I'll be going through the project later this week (probably Saturday) and will show each of the steps as I take them. At least that's the plan. And the letters are stamps of the months of the year. So stop by on (hopefully) Saturday and see what I've done.

  12. OOPS! forgot to wish you a very happy Easter.
