WOYWW: Heart Song!

 My desk. You will wonder how I can get any work done!
I finished the painting in a frame, put it in plastic this morning,
and plopped it down on yesterday's painting on my Bible.

 Here you can see how I just pile things up until it falls down.
That's how I know how high to go ha ha ha!!!

 Now to start on my daily meditation.

 "Now Israel, hear the statutes and decrees 
which I am teaching you to observe, 
that you may live..." Dt. 4:1

Before we can compose a great piece of music, 
we need to know some basics of music composition. 
To discover the freedom and the beauty of making a beautiful melody, 
one needs to be familiar with scales, 
major chords and minor, triads, etc., 
the building blocks of music. 
Although one may argue that some compose by ear, 
hundreds and most well known composers 
know the fundamentals, the grammar of music.

When God gave Moses the law, it was not to burden him 
and the Jewish people with dos and don'ts. 
It was not to put a millstone around their neck so that every day, 
they would have to walk this straight and 
narrow path like animals on a leash.  
First and foremost, the Law identified the Jews as His special people. 
"What great nation is there that has a God so near to it?!" (Dt. 4:7) 
And second, like the fundamentals of music, 
the law gave them the freedom 
and the beauty to live good lives 
according to God's purpose and direction. 
To make a masterpiece of their lives! 
We too can make a masterpiece of our lives under 
the baton of the greatest composer. 
We just need to study God's law and His promises. 
Lord, may my life be a heart song offered to You, 
and may I more and more appreciate the gift of Your Word! 

Joining the lovely Julia Dunnit for a 
peek at desks and projects!

    Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

  5. Loving your Bible painting. Very pretty and so apt.
    Not too sure that the picture of your desk isn't rivalling Helen's. Never realised you had so much storage around you - busy busy busy.
    Hugs, Neet 1 xx

  6. Your drawing skills and lettering are amazing, Patsy! I'm actually here though a link on G+ then I realized that you're a WOYWWer too! I haven't linked yet, so no number yet. Thanks for visiting my watercolour flowers post!

  7. Beautiful painting Patsy and I love your desk shot - reminds me of my room, surrounded by storage and piles of stuff! Have fun :o) Annie C #25

  8. Patsy, I really love this... I love the idea of illuminating one's Bible in this way, and what a beautiful meditation. Your post is particularly appropriate for me today because this week I have just revived my own music and guitar playing (although not composing). The picture is s beautiful and thoughtful. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you for your lovely comment and I'm glad you enjoyed all my kitties! There's another one (a real one!) on my WOYWW post this week.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #28

  9. When my space begins to look like this I start losing things. I have to keep one small space clear for my work space!

  10. I push stuff to the sides and pile things up too but not quite as high as yours.

    Your Bible page is beautiful. Have a happy week. Barbxx #16

  11. Beautiful painting Patsy. Wow, the piles in your craftroom make mine look quite moderate! I do not feel so bad now, but I do have a lot of clutter, seriously! It was great to visit, Judith xx

  12. Your drawings amaze me. And your words hit home for me. I have to remember that the touch of the Master's hand anything is possible.

  13. I love your paintings, Patsy. You do have a gift. So wonderful that you're using it for God's glory. Thanks, neighbor. Blessings to you!

  14. I agree. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who piles stuff up. I must extend your logic..and watch Mr Dunnit's eyes roll!

  15. So gifted and talented. Love your work Patsy!

  16. Beautiful artwork! Wow your space is certainly busy.

  17. Patsy, love seeing into your world and studio!

  18. Thanks for your return visit, Patsy, and I'm glad you enjoyed seeing Phoebe nest-building in my guitar case! Thank you for your kind words about the end of my cancer.


  19. I love this Patsy. I love your desk - your mind and your creativity. My desk and room get cluttered. Then I can't stand it and have to tidy it up. But then I can't find anything. grrr.

  20. Patsy I am amazed at the contained apparent chaos at your work area. The art journaling picture is so soft and beautiful. Your posts are always quite inspirational. Such wonderfully lovely art. Thank you so much for entering our 221st challenge. We are always delighted to see your entries.

  21. I love a busy desk! That means it's full of things that inspire you and brighten your day to create!!

  22. I always enjoy your work. It is just beautiful!

  23. Love your wonderful art here. The drawing is always wonderful. We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration from God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
