WOYWW: All These Things!

Wednesday Show Off!!!
I've been showing my desk every Wednesday
for oh so long!

Last night I was copying the Blobfish and the Axolotl,
strange creatures that God created.
I am making a book on the gift of creativity
and these funny little animals prove that 
God has a sense of humor
and we should too,
about the way we draw and paint
 and scrapbook or make cards! 
And that's what WOYWW is all about!
Sharing our desks, what we make,
our gifts and talents,
even if it's not perfect,
or extra special!
Take joy in the journey, that's what we say every week
when we post our messy or organized desks (or floors!)

This morning I was reading the 36th chapter of Sirach.

"Give evidence of your deeds of old;
fulfill the prophecies spoken in Your Name..." 
Sirach 36:14

This is my prayer today.
Lord, give me proof of what You did before,
show me Your healing, Your saving,
Your restoring, Your miracles.
There are so many people I am praying for,
my mom, my sister, my brother,
Rosanne, Danic and Christopher with leukemia.
And myself.
We need to see your miracles O Lord!

Please fulfill the promises, 
the prophecies spoken in Your Name.
God, You have soooo many promises
and I stand on Your promises.
I know that You will fulfill 
Your promises to Your people!

One of them is this from Mark, chapter 10:
"There is no one who has given up house,
or brothers or sisters or mother or father
or children or lands for My sake 
and for the sake of the Gospel,
who will not receive a hundred times more
now in this present age."

Is God asking us to give up these 
wonderful gifts He has given us?
I don't think so!
I think Jesus is saying that if we put Him first,
we will have all this and more! 

Look at my wonderful family below,
all dressed up in filipiniana attire.
We were trying to look aristocratic.
Some of us didn't quite make it!

"Seek first the Kingdom of God and
His righteousness, and 
all these things shall be added unto you. "
Matthew 6:33

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week, chose
#37, Bluebeard and Elizabeth of Altered Book Lover.
Elizabeth is soooo generous with her
amazingly detailed tutorials!
I think I shall make her an ATC with a
rocking horse to add to her collection!

Joining the lovely Julia Dunnit for a 
peek at desks and projects!
I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?
Sometimes I put on my best pajamas 
and party here:

  5. Hi there Patsy, you are the lady I have to send my ATC to!! Hooray! I'm glad it's someone I have known for a while! I have always loved your artwork, especially your writing, it always amazes me how neat you are. My ATC is my first ever attempt at stamping, so it is quite simple but I enjoyed doing it.

    Patsy, your animated .gif is great! I have this post open in my browser, which must mean that I owe a return visit from two weeks ago. Yikes! I've been fascinated with axolotls ever since I read the short story by Cortazar (I think that's who it was.) Then I saw one in a zoo once. Happy WOYWW. ~ Laura


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
