WOYWW: Miracles

What's on my desk today?
Here is a small part of it.
Everything else is dark as it is quite early
in the morning.
You can see my pencils, brushes
and little pots of paint.
I really have to learn
how to put things back in their places
so I have more room to work!!!

This morning I read about how Elijah
challenged the false prophets of Baal
to prove who is the real God!

Why don't we have fire and brimstone
prophets like Elijah today?
chapter 18, God's fire rained down
 and consumed the bull, the wood, 
the stones, even the water in the trench 
around the holocaust!

In the 17th chapter,
when he asked a widow who had 
nothing but oil and flour,
to provide for him,
Elijah said,
"Do not be afraid."
True enough, the oil and flour 
lasted a whole year!

I am sure God can do 
the same miracles today,
and sometimes He does,
but we have only to read His Word
and ask Him to show Himself to us
for us to experience Him!

Last post, Dawn asked me
how many paintings I make in a day or week.
I draw on my journal every day.
This is so I can remember what
I read and prayed about.
They are really mini paintings,
just the size of a small sketchbook.
Then there are some paintings in progress,
some commissioned,
and some I do because I love to paint! 

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

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

  5. What you're really saying to Dawn is - 'I'm a prolific artist' but you're too modest to say it yourself! Soon as I saw your journal this morning, I knew we were talking fire and brimstone...don't see a lot of solid red in your work generally!

  15. I can really appreciate the fact that you draw about what you read in the bible, it gives you a chance to meditate on what you read and probably helps you to remember it better too! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  16. Patsy, your journal pages are beautiful. I love your artwork and how illustrating your bible readings helps you remember what you read and prayed about. Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at Word Art Wednesday.

  17. Sometimes I think leaving all the stuff out and trying to make do with the small space you've left yourself is half the fun. But I do know that sometimes you end up with no space for you. I wondered if you did your journal every day. I'm impressed you do and have time for other things as well. I'm considering cloning myself so I can have more time.

  19. Your art is beautiful and really captures the spirit of the stories and the lessons you are learning! I've always thought that might be a fun and creative way to journal what I'm reading in God's Word. Sometimes these things evade words. ;) Thank you so much for sharing the inspiration!

  24. Patsy, How did I miss this? I so enjoy your posts and try to see each one. I really love your creativity. ANd then I find you have a sister and I was thinking that there were so much similarities...Now please, I am humbly asking you to link this up with RJD this week (or any of yours of course- but I like that you answered my question and it may be of helpful for others to hear and see different , ne ways to journal and pray! I so want to do the WOYW- I took a picture of my desk...I love to create but am not as artistic as some of the entrants. I love the creative community you have led me to, my friend!
