WOYWW: Open Door

I actually forgot it was Wednesday,
and was not able to take a picture of my desk BEFORE
I started working on it.
So here, I have finished my little painting.
I have my scripture reading on the right,
a group of envelopes which
hold ATCs that I owe past winners
of my weekly ATC giveaway,
ATCs I did at the beach
a couple of weeks ago,
now awaiting some words and new owners.

This is what I read this morning,
 from the 15th chapter of John.
"I am the Vine, you are the branches.
He who remains in Me,
and I in him,
bears much fruit.
For apart from me,
you can do NOTHING."
John 15: 5

Sometimes I wonder how I can 
balance everything in my life.
My family, my Christian community, my work, my blog,
facebook, instagram, my plans to write a book, 
plans for workshops, my second family 
(as my husband calls my Sims family)
who sometimes don't bathe for days!!!!
This verse reminds me it is not a matter
of balancing.
It is important that I stay CONNECTED
to the VINE!

When we are connected, we will be fruitful,
we will see the many doors God opens.

Is there an open door you are scared to walk through?

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
#7,Sandra of Doris' Daughter.
She makes charming mixed media collages
and dolls.

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:

  10. I love my ATCs, each time I look at them I think of you creating on a distant beach...their creation doesn't come that easily to me, so to have original artwork and words from you is very inspiring. Happy we caught you mid use of your desk this morning!

  11. lovely pages with great messages. Happy woyww jenx

  12. Staying connected to Father doesn't always feel easy does it - but it is indeed so very important. Loved the picture of the vine. Have a good week.
