WOYWW: You are God's Treasure!

Here is my desk early in the morning.
It is of course, as I left it last night.

I am making some beads out of baking soda,
corn starch and water
for a tutorial I will post
in our papemelroti blog.
(Update: tutorial is posted 
if you'd like to check it out!)

After clearing up my desk,
I read the gospel for the day
which is about the kingdom of heaven being 
like a merchant in search of fine pearls.
When he finds a pearl of great price,
he goes and sells all that he has
and buys it.

A close up because someone asked 
for close ups of my background.
It's really child's play.
No thinking.
Good therapy!
Did not Jesus say we should be like little children?

Well I found the pearls of great price! 

I like what I read today from the Word Among Us:
"YOU are the pearl of great price.
YOU are God's highest treasure.
He has searched far and wide for you,
and He was overjoyed when He finally found YOU!
Relentless in His pursuit of YOU,
God woos YOU tirelessly!"

"Treat every person as a child of God
with an eternal destiny."

This we have to remember,
to see each person the way
God sees him or her!
The impatient person standing 
in line next to you,
 the person who is irritating 
you by blowing his horn,
the call center agent who 
pushes his product on you,
they are all God's pearls 
of great price,
just like YOU are! 

Every week I choose one from my 
wonderful visitors who take the time
and trouble to leave a comment,
to receive an ATC or a postcard from me.

This week it is JoDee Luna from

  7. OMG! Papemelroti was heaven for me when I was in college and it still is! I had to travel by boat to Iloilo just to get my papemelroti fix since there's none here in Bacolod. I get "lost" whenever I'm in that store!
    no wonder you make wonder and beautiful things!

  20. The beads look pretty neat. Have a great day!

  21. YOur pages are wonderful! I love the journaling on the pages! Thanks for sharing over at WAW.

  22. At first I thought you had a tray of seashells on your table. I remember making those kind of beads as a child with my mother keeping watch. I'll bet somewhere she has a stash of our lumpy bumpy beads. I love how you just put this and that on your backgrounds and let them happen and then find out what is in them. I could do the first part if I was so inclined, but I just don't see things in them like you do. And yes, we should all be as little children, but a couple few of us could do with a smidge more maturity.

  23. My favorite today is the pearls- love how you have them flowing out of the hand!

  24. Oh my goodness...cornstarch and salt? I'm off to go see the tutorial now!!

    I'm having a giveaway, open worldwide this week. Come check it out if you get the chance!
