This was taken at 5:30 in the morning
The picture is not very clear because I manipulated it with
the BeFunky camera app on my Ipad.
This doesn't seem any clearer.
But you may be able to see my two canvases at the back,
well, actually 4 canvases,
On my journal is one of my favorite verses.
It's from 2 Timothy 1:6:
"Stir up the gift of God that is in thee."
All of us have been given wonderful gifts.
We have to discover it, use it,
develop it, and share it.
If we do that we will bloom and grow.
We will be a blessing to all around us.
I don't think I have discovered all my gifts yet....

Patsy, I love the greens in that print. Keep posting your beautiful work, and no I am sure you have more gifts to discover...God surprises us like that!ReplyDelete
I love that first image of your desk, it has a great vintage feel to it, almost like a painting! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)ReplyDelete
I was in the process of leaving you a comment and this time my computer not just locked up, it quit. I got a blue screen and a fatal exception error. I don't know what it is about your blog, but it doesn't like my computer.ReplyDelete
I'm trying again because I really like the journal page AND those canvases. Happy WOYWW from #4. Gotta make this fast before it freezes again.

love how you funked your photo upReplyDelete
have a fab crafty week
What an awesome print. You are so talented! And I love the reminder to stir up the gifts within me. I needed that today.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous journal page.. and your creative desk is as busy as ever... Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#34ReplyDelete
Morning Patsy, well I love the first photo. It is so artistic. The canvases are beautiful as well. Hope you have a blessed week.ReplyDelete
I rather like your BeFunky photo. It sort of looks like an old painting. Great journal page again today. Lovely colors, so soothing.ReplyDelete
Your first photo is interesting - kind of cool, actually. As usual your canvases are inspiring. I'd like to think of myself as always evolving - developing new gifts all the time.
That is a fun app, but it doesnt make your desk unrecognisable to me....i know thats not the point, but i would know it anywhere! You get up very early, does this give you some contemplative time before the day begins? Love todays journal page, i think many of us strive so, probably without realising our God given gifts so to do.ReplyDelete
Fabulous page and a beautiful verse. Happy WOYWW!ReplyDelete
I really like that scripture! Amen - Stir me up Lord!ReplyDelete
As always, your journal is inspiring! That is one of my favourite verses too. I am trying tio discover my gifts, but I do know that I was given a oretty rare gift. I love teenagers and they seem to respond to me, that is why I stay being a teacher, because I know that very few people enjoy them as much as I do.ReplyDelete
LOVE that journal page! It's beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thaks for sharing,
Love today's journal page brilliant as always.ReplyDelete
Have a great crafty week! Happy LATE WoYwW!
Yes I agree about God's gifts within us - I feel so lucky - I try to use my gifts to make the world a nicer place. x JoReplyDelete
Beautiful artwork as always, Patsy. Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
Happy belated WOYWW,
Apologies for being so late visiting but as they say better late than never eh?ReplyDelete
An amazing print...your journal looks brilliant. I've never made one but I think that maybe I should ;D
If you nip over to my place you might be interested in joining in with my first 'giveaway'.
Have a great week! Neesie #7
