WOYWW: My Treasure Map!

Here's my desk for this Wednesday!
I just came from a trip to Singapore
and you can see my paints in a Tostitos bottle
where I packed them.
My husband shook his head at me,
"Why are you using a glass bottle!???"

 We are off tomorrow to stay in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar,
where we are going to see old Filipino houses.
I am going to pack these paints 
in my glass bottle again tonight.

"May my tongue sing of Your promise...." Psalm 119:172
In another version, it reads,
"My tongue shall sing of thy Word..."

What is there to sing about?
Why lots!!!
"God puts Himself within our reach with His promises!"
"Tarry at the promise till God meets you there.
He always returns by way of His promises."
"When faith goes to market,
it always takes a basket!"
(Streams in the Desert, December 29)

I always try to stand on God's promises.
That's why I draw it, to embed
His word in my heart!

"Study the generations long past
and understand,
has anyone HOPED in the LORD
and been disappointed?
Sirach 2:1-11

 Not reading God's Word is like 
not digging for treasure when you have
a treasure map telling you exactly where it is!
I am claiming my inheritance,
just like all those people of generations long past
who were not disappointed! 

How about you?

Preparing ATCs for sending out!

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!

  4. Great post. Love the photos of your ATC and journal pages. My husband thinks some of the stuff I do is strange too! I packed some plastic embellishment bags in a glass jar to travel with....when I asked him what he would have done he said left them at home. Haha a joker! Have a great week. Vickie #26

  5. Glad you had a good trip... the atc's look fabulous Helen 5

  16. Glad you had such a good time with your family in singapore. Great fun isn't it to spend time with family? I love it when all 11 of us are together! How true that we need to know Father's promises and hang in there with them - especially when circumstances try to tell us differently!!

  24. OK, here's the thing, first I am apologizing for not having been around, but I have been uber busy and now I am going to have the audacity to ask you to do a favor for me ( shakes head, I'm shameless ) But I am in a contest and sad to say but it's the truth, it's a popularity vote, so here's the favor...would you be so kind to go over and vote for me? I sure would appreciate it from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol (vote for the camera, please ) ( waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ #19

  25. You have beautiful artwork with wonderful praise to our God. Thanks so much for sharing your work and words over at WholeHearted Home.
