Paint Party Friday: Without Cost

I always like to paint scripture
because it is my way to put God's Word
in my heart and in my eyes.

"Do not worry .." .about how you are to speak,
how you are to act, when you are about my business.
Do not worry about provision
for I will take care of you.
It's easy to think that everything
depends on us,
and that can fill us with anxiety!

When Jesus sent off his apostles
and asked them to heal the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse lepers and drive out demons,
He also told them,
"Without cost you have RECEIVED,
without cost you are to GIVE."
Matthew 10:8

The Lord puts no price tag on our salvation, 
on the Word, on life everlasting, 
on forgiveness and His love for us which He gave freely! 
There are many gifts and talents we have-
He also gave this without cost.
Whatever we have, let us share with others.

"As a MOTHER comforts her son,
so will I comfort you."
Isaiah 66:13

We also receive comfort and consolation from God
through His Spirit.
Is there someone you know who needs
comfort and consolation right now?
Maybe you can do something about it!

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
31, Neet  of  Hickydorums!
She is one of the WOYWW regulars
and has a new and interesting blog,
Flat Susan, an amusing travelogue 
of who else but Flat Susan!

Thank you for dropping by!
You are appreciated!


  1. I love every single one of these paintings!

  2. Everyone of these is sweet, Patsy. You captured such a relieved, calm look in the "Do Not Worry" painting. And the baby is so I love that Scripture verse.

    That's for sharing your talents on TGIF.

    Oh, that scripture- "As a mother comforts her son"- and it makes me wonder how does a mother comfort the boys of mine who are grown up - when they won't allow it - and then I understand God's heart toward us more when I won't allow His comfort! Your God-Art went straight to my heart!

  4. I like their sweet faces! HPPF!

  5. Beautiful, thoughtful pieces!

  6. Beautiful art pages, terrific take on the written word. Happy PPF, Annette x
