Here is Jesus commanding an
impure spirit to come out of this man!
Of course the people became amazed
and news about Jesus' miraculous powers spread!

In my reading today, it was about how Jesus
freed a man with SEVERAL unclean spirits!
Afterwards, the man asked if he could stay with Jesus.
Jesus said, "Go home to your family
announce to them all that the Lord in His pity
has done for you!"

We may not have several unclean spirits,
but we always need Jesus 
to free us from negative thoughts, 
self-pity, a judgmental attitude,
insecurity, a critical spirit, etc.

That is the only way we can have peace.

"Peace" is an Artist Trading Card 
I finished today
for Sarah's 

I used to do a lot of ATCs
cause it's a lot of fun and so easy to do!
The "Peace" ATC is a collage of
wall puttied bookpaper.

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

Blessings to you
and your family,

Keep Sowing!

Some progress with my painting! 
How do you like the bird?
I did several studies and finally liked this one.

 And here is my journal page.
Keep sowing seeds!
Seeds of encouragement,
seeds of hope,
seeds of joy!
Not only for others but for ourselves as well.
What we sow, we will reap!

I'm kind of late for these parties!

WOYWW: Faith Journeys!

I took this at about 5 in the morning,
after my prayer time.
As you can see, I can pray, work, whatever,
on top of piles of paper!

This is what's beneath my journal:
studies of birds.
I don't know how many birds I've drawn!
Finally, I went on pinterest
and got inspiration from the many
feathered friends I saw there!
I need to draw a bird for the unfinished painting
you can see in this post!

My reading was about how
Saint Paul would recount what happened to him.
"On that journey as I drew near to Damascus,
about noon a great light from the sky
suddenly shone around me.
I fell to the ground and heard a voice
saying to me, "Saul, Saul,
why are you persecuting me?"

St. Paul, the great LION of God,
had an amazing faith journey!

As I reflect on my faith journey,
I realize that God does not send us out
without equipping us for the tasks He wants us to do.

"Each of us may be sure that if God 
sends us on stony paths,
He will provide us with strong shoes,
and he will not send us out on any journey
for which He does not equip us well."
