Intense Love!

This is what I drew for my journal this morning.
A verse from 1 Peter 4:
"Let your love for one another be INTENSE,
because LOVE covers a multitude of sins."

I like this verse because we make many mistakes,
disappoint even ourselves sometimes,
but love can make up for those mistakes!

In 1 Corinthians 13, it says that
LOVE is greater than faith and hope.
I guess this is because even if we have 
the kind of faith that moves mountains,
if we don't have love for others,
what would be the use of that?
We would just be using it for ourselves!

Here are some of the projects I've started.
Here is a face on bookpaper 
covered with wall putty.

And here is an ATC I've made
as a sample for our Crafternoon this

The vase is from a plastic ampule of
Flixotide, which I cut in half.

This is why my craft room 
is full of garbage!
I usually find a way to use it! 

Do you have a post on how you've 
salvaged an item from the garbage can
and used it for your art?

  1. Patsy - I think you have a wonderful journal! I could even see such in print for the glory of God.

    I have been really blessed visiting your site and love your straightforward teaching via artwork.

    Beautiful testimony of someone using their talent for the Lord.

  2. Yay! I really love the face on bookpaper. Your journal always inspires! It is like a decadent, delicious dessert for my eyes, heart and soul! Thanks for sharing and linking, Patsy!

  3. Love that verse. Beautiful picture!

  4. I'm stilled by the beauty you create with castoffs. And isn't that just what He can do?

  5. Oh I must adore your creations, I am so glad I stopped by.

  6. Intense love keeps us going when life has been filled with intense strife and stress. It's always good when the right intensity wins!

  7. I love the one with the child -- covering a multitude of sins. So often I harp on things that just aren't that important - they need to be covered with love and not words.

  8. Hi Patsy! I totally agree. Above anything else, love is more than enough to conquer everything. Have a great weekend!

  9. This kind of love is a privilege to have in life. My husband is such a forgiving man and my daughters also. It's because they want to be as much like our Heavenly Father as they can. It's my desire, too. It makes for a peaceful home! Once again your art has caused me to be thankful and rejoice.

  10. As always, I enjoy your art, thoughts and Scripture verses. This time I read your About page too. It was fun to get to know you better. I love that you and your sister are so close and your family has a business together. Very cool. Thanks for linking up to B&BB. I pray you have a blessed, artful week!

  11. Beautiful artwork Patsy. Happy PPF, Annette x

  12. Lovely creations this week. Reuse is good! ;)

  13. My touchstone on this subject continues to be Irene Gallo's collected remarks about what art directors look for in a portfolio site. She stipulated the most important features as being the ability to save to or drag to the desktop right from the full image, and full-image previews. This solution only misses the latter.

  14. Your have worked very well this week, I like the message. Saludos

  15. So beautiful! I love the sweet pleasant faces in each drawing and the Scripture.

  16. So glad I found you, I LOVE your artwork! Your facebook picture is my favorite! Do you sell prints of them?

  17. I love your journal page inspired by the love in the verse! :) Such a neat way to use your salvage items! So fun!

  18. I love Corinthians 13! And you're absolutely right--what's faith without love? Hadn't really thought about it before...

  19. You are so talented. I enjoyed visiting your blog today! I'll be back!

  20. Your art is beautiful and interesting and unique and draws me in every time. What a gift you offer when you share each of these beautiful pieces with us! Thank you!

  21. Your artwork always amazes. It must be fun to have this gift. Thank you for sharing it along with your insight with us each week.

  22. Patsy, this is wonderful. Your daily art journaling is always an encouragement to me when I visit here. Thanks for linking this to Scripture Thursday. ~ Abby

  23. Your art is really beautiful! I'm glad to have found your blog through Random Journal Day Linkup! If I had a craft room I'd use a lot of "garbage" as art. For now, I collect tiny things with plans to use them eventually - like buttons and strings.

  24. I really love your artwork, Patsy. So joyful and unique! Thank you for the reminder that love DOES cover a multitude of sins, and we must offer that to each other! Blessings!


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
