Bloom and Bear fruit

On my desk. My journal, acrylic paints, a brush, 
a rag, water.

On my journal:
a reading from Colossians 1:
This Gospel, already present among you,
is bearing fruit
and growing throughout the world,
as it did among you 
from the day you accepted it
and understood the gift of God
in all its truth.

We had a four day weekend,
but it rained the whole time from
typhoon Nanmadol (what a name!).
So instead of going to the beach,
I was able to do some art.
Both of these canvases are about
blooming and bearing fruit.
When we read the Word of God,
it will work in us and through us.
Even if we think we are not 
growing, we are!
The Word will not return to God 
without any effect on us. 
We will bloom and bear fruit.

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!
and linking up with 

Why don't you join us?


  1. I love that vibrant tree! And your message, that God's word is working in us, even when we might not be aware of it -- now that gives me hope and encouragement!

  11. Your canvases are terrific. Both the tree and the gal with her flowers are so inspirational. Have a super WOYWW.
