WOYWW: Psalm 23

This is my desk as I left it last night.
I was having a LOT of fun making backgrounds
while watching The Mummy on HBO.

A closer look at the "tools" I was using.

Bubble wrap. Those plastic protectors for apples
(whatever are they called?),

and a "stamp" I made from styrofoam.

I chose one of my backgrounds 
because I could see the face of a woman.
It's not very clear though.

But here she is now, emerging like a half formed
butterfly from her cocoon.

"The Lord is my Shepherd,
there is nothing I shall want."
Psalm 23 is one of the most beloved 
Psalms in the Bible.

My pinky finger is sort of numb right now
and when I googled it,
it seems I've got a pinched nerve.
I was just reflecting upon how many 
nerves, arteries, veins, sinews,
organs, etc.
all working quietly, efficiently in our body.
If only one gets pinched, clogged, 
bruised, stops working,
our daily routine would stop just like that!
Just like last December when I ended up
in the hospital because of 
Deep Vein Thrombosis.
We just take these things for granted don't we?
The Lord is my Shepherd
and He takes care of so many things in my life
so that I don't have to!!!!

Thank you to all who visited and 
commented last week.
Every week I choose one of you
to receive a little gift, an ATC from me
in appreciation of your kindness! 

And this week, #46 is
a fellow filipina! 
She can choose from one of the ATCs below.

  12. I know something similar to what Pamella mentions: where a little one has to learn Psalm 23 off by heart, only he keeps forgetting it. When it's his turn to recite it, he stands and says "The Lord is MY shepherd, and that's all I need to know!" Amen to that child's wisdom! Lovely artwork on your desk this week. Happy WOYWW!

    Great backgrounds! It's so much fun seeing an ordinary item and then using it to create a beautiful piece of art!
