WOYWW: Footprints of Faith

It's been quite a busy week!
And if I were to take a picture of my craft room,
you'd think a whirlwind passed by!
I was very happy about the art fair last Saturday!
Thank you for all your encouragement and well wishes!

It's back to my usual schedule today
and my reading this morning is from John, chapter 8.

"Everyone who commits sin,
is a slave of sin."
John 8:34
We should strive to be FREE.
Take a simple thing like gossiping.
Do we delight in talking about other people
in a way that makes us feel superior?
I have to admit I am not free of this.
Sometimes I say,
"Let's pray for so and so
because you know what happened?..."

I only realize afterwards that
I let my tongue run away
and I was not in control of this very
powerful "sword of destruction".

There are a lot of other ways we 
are not bringers of peace and unity.
Let's examine our lives this Lent 
and see how we can become free
of these "termites" that are so
destructive and work quietly in the dark!

Wouldn't it be great if we could be
like the Saint Joseph,
who left "footprints of faith"
for us to follow?

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week, chose,
#11, Paula J
a wonderful blog
that encourages all of us to take the time
and stop and see God's blessings!

Joining the lovely Julia Dunnit for a 
peek at desks and projects!
I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

Sometimes I put on my best pajamas 
and party here:

  5. Beautiful, Patsy. And yes, what we say sometimes comes out as gossip when we should have just asked for prayer - period. The Lord knows our every need and the needs of all the others, as well. Thanks for the reminder to be more diligent in this area.

  14. Patsy,
    Your work is outrageously wonderful and meaningful. Your blog is a refreshing stop any time. I do not want to be a slave to sin but much prefer to leave faith steps.
    Thank you so much for posting your beautiful artwork with us. We hope to see you again next week.

  17. lovely art and words. Anne x #162

  18. As always, your artwork and accompanying thoughts on faith are so beautiful and poignant. The St. Joseph quote reminds me of that song from Rich Mullins that says:
    "Let mercy lead, let love be the strength in your legs.
    And in every footprint that you leave may there be a drop of grace."
    Thank you for this!

  19. Wow, this is so beautiful and moving!! What a gorgeous piece of art!!

    Thanks so much for entering my giveaway!! Have a great evening :)

  20. Patsy, you have such a gift, friend. The way you minister through art... it's beautiful. Thank you.

  21. OUCH Patsy! That one hit right between the eyes! There is so much truth to what you said, and to the verse of course. I had not thought of how I live in bondage to the sins I commit.


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
