What's on my Workdesk Wednesday?

What's on my desk today?
My prayer journal and my scrap paper canvas
amidst the mess!

A close-up of my canvas.
I decided to keep the bird as most of you "voted" 
to keep him in!
I thought that if he had such
a loyal following, I didn't have the heart to 
set him aside!

I kind of like how it's turning out.
Lots to do yet, especially the top right part.
Need something there to balance the picture!

Oh, and thank you to Debra of Common Ground!
I finally got my lovely giveaway,
a wonderful Cavallini notebook (I love birds!),
a charming vintage box,
and a dainty necklace with a vintage key.
So pretty!  I love them all, Debra!

And here's my journal page for today.
God did not promise a trouble-free life,
but He did promise to walk with us.
Sometimes we need to fight "giants",
when there's an "inner battle' raging in our minds.
When a voice inside says, 
"I can't do this," or "No one is for me,"
or "I'll never succeed,"
we need to use God's armor,
 and stand on His promises.

"I can do all things through Him 
who strengthens me." Phil. 4:13

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