WOYWW 157: Discover your Gifts!

This was taken at 5:30 in the morning
after I did my journal.
The picture is not very clear because I manipulated it with
the BeFunky camera app on my Ipad.

This doesn't seem any clearer.
But you may be able to see my two canvases at the back,
well, actually 4 canvases, 
but only two are new!

On my journal is one of my favorite verses.
It's from 2 Timothy 1:6:
"Stir up the gift of God that is in thee."

All of us have been given wonderful gifts.
We have to discover it, use it,
develop it, and share it.

If we do that we will bloom and grow.
We will be a blessing to all around us.
I don't think I have discovered all my gifts yet....
have you?

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

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

    I was in the process of leaving you a comment and this time my computer not just locked up, it quit. I got a blue screen and a fatal exception error. I don't know what it is about your blog, but it doesn't like my computer.

    I'm trying again because I really like the journal page AND those canvases. Happy WOYWW from #4. Gotta make this fast before it freezes again.

  18. Morning Patsy, well I love the first photo. It is so artistic. The canvases are beautiful as well. Hope you have a blessed week.

  19. I rather like your BeFunky photo. It sort of looks like an old painting. Great journal page again today. Lovely colors, so soothing.

  20. Hi Patsy,

    Your first photo is interesting - kind of cool, actually. As usual your canvases are inspiring. I'd like to think of myself as always evolving - developing new gifts all the time.

    Happy WOYWW

  21. That is a fun app, but it doesnt make your desk unrecognisable to me....i know thats not the point, but i would know it anywhere! You get up very early, does this give you some contemplative time before the day begins? Love todays journal page, i think many of us strive so, probably without realising our God given gifts so to do.

  22. Fabulous page and a beautiful verse. Happy WOYWW!

  23. I really like that scripture! Amen - Stir me up Lord!

  24. As always, your journal is inspiring! That is one of my favourite verses too. I am trying tio discover my gifts, but I do know that I was given a oretty rare gift. I love teenagers and they seem to respond to me, that is why I stay being a teacher, because I know that very few people enjoy them as much as I do.
    Happy WOYWW

  25. LOVE that journal page! It's beautiful!

    Thaks for sharing,
