JOY !

I was running out of paper
with wall putty on it,
so I started a painting frenzy
and ended up with this pile.

I also made a lot of backgrounds.
The one on top is a background on
a piece of canvas which I 
applied what else, but wall putty on!
The lady is drawn on bookpaper
with wall putty on it.
Then I glued her on to the 
painted background.

On my journal this morning,
a verse from John 15:11:
"I have told you this so that 
my joy may be in you
and your joy may be complete."

Isn't it wonderful that Jesus
told us how to be blessed and
joyful here on earth?
He did not want this to be 
a secret.
He wanted His disciples to share 
His teachings, and spread it far
and wide!

I guess in a little way it is like
my desire to share 
what I know and have learned,
be it the use of wall putty,
or what I read about in my
morning prayers.
I want to spread joy!
After all, JOY is my
middle name! (yes really!)

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?


Blessings!
Patsy
