WOYWW 77: Do you Believe in Miracles?

Here is my desk this morning.
I have to confess to not being home
most of the time
and just dumping stuff on my desk.

But I always take time to pray,
and here is my journal this morning.
For those of you who visited last week,
you know that my mother-in-law
is in a coma. We've been at her bedside,
praying, singing, talking to her and
confessing healing verses from the Bible.

Today I am happy to report some progress.
Yesterday when my mom, dad and I visited,
I started singing (in my own tune!),
"You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!"
and "Though your soul cleaves to the dust, the Word of God revives you!"
"The joy of the Lord is your strength!"
My dad said, "Keep doing that! Her foot moved!"

In the afternoon, her neuro was surprised
because she moved her neck, her two feet,
and they were able to remove her respirator for a while
and she breathed on her own.
She's still "asleep" but I am sure she will be revived by God's Word and promises!
I am filled with praise and thanksgiving!

It will be a miracle if I win
Lulu Too Much's Giveaway,
but even if I'm really busy,
I'm not too busy to join this fabulous candy.

Here's my table this morning.
I got inspired by many of you making Christmas cards
and I decided to see if I could make bookmarks to give away.
That's what's beside my journal.
It's just random book pages pasted on kraft liner board.
I'm planning to put wall putty over it and paint and collage.
We'll see!
And this is my journal.
I've been thinking about heaven.
My mother-in-law is in Intensive Care
and unconscious, after a hemorrhagic stroke.
I would appreciate prayers for her healing.
In Psalm 103, the Word of God says
He heals all our diseases.
That's what I'm claiming for her.
I truly believe His Word is medicine for our bodies
(Proverbs 4:20-22)

Here's what's on my desk today-
a spread I made in 2005 for True North magazine.
I'm going to have to make another one for 2010 tonight.

And for those of you who have followed my progress on
Art, Heart and Healing
free e-course,
here's the second page of my board book.
These are supposed to be my three sisters.
Of course, they look nothing like these three "whimsies",
as Tam calls them.
None of my sisters has blue hair
nor blue eyes!

But they did and still do,
make my life a joy!

Head off to Julia of Stamping Ground
to see more work desks!

WOYWW 74: Still on my Boardbook

Here we go again!
I can't believe how fast the week goes
when we're on this merry go round
of Julia of Stamping Ground's

I was at the beach for the three day weekend
and instead of the art materials
I usually bring,
I brought dresses to sew and fix.

So last night, I hurriedly made my boardbook
which many of you expect to see finished!

I've joined Tam's free e-course,
Art, Heart and Healing
(not too late to sign up for it).
The 2nd and 3rd week's project
is an altered boardbook.
As it's a healing course,
we were supposed to remember
our childhood
But I had a wonderful childhood,
and can remember nothing I need healing for!
(Or maybe I have a bad memory?)
So here's a close-up of my boardbook page.
On the left is a picture of me and my dad.
The transfer using Gel medium didn't turn out so well
so my dad doesn't look as handsome as he really is.
His cheek got carved out!
I used to think he was the
handsomest man in the world!

I've just started the 2nd page
which is to be filled with Whimsy's,
Tam's word for people with big heads!
