What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Happy Thoughts

Warm greetings to all the WOYWWers and other blog friends who drop by!  I've taken a super close up of my desk today because even I can't take the pile on it.  Not inspiring at all!  I am preparing for a trip and everything is in chaos!

But, as this wonderful ATC from Kimberly says, even with a messy desk, "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."  Kimberly is having "52 Weeks, 52 Artists, 52 Trades" so if you want to have one of her beautiful ATCs, go visit her lovely blog!

And speaking of being happy, here is a page from my prayer journal.  May this verse become more and more true in my life...

Why not spread some happiness and visit blog friends over at WOYWWInspire Me Monday and Word Art Wednesday!  And there's still time to join Lulu's great giveaway!  There's a whole bunch of goodies to win!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Prayer Journal in Progress

Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, my dear blog friends!  On my desk are my standard journaling materials, and the page I am working on today...

If you happened to visit my previous post, you will know that this week we are celebrating the The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  This week is "about Christians deciding to make up.  We have called each other names in the past, and now we want to give each other one name that unites us all together, the name that links us to Christ, Christians, so that we can be friends again...Christian unity is about our different churches choosing to be friends, even though we are very different, copying the Lord who calls us all friends."  - Sword of the Spirit Reflection Guide.  We do not have to agree all the time to be friends.  We do not have to express our faith in the same way to be friends.  Let us stretch out our hands in friendship with one another. (Sharing this in Word Art Wednesday)

Aside from journal stuff, I also have a Christmas tag I won from Wendy, an ATC made by Joy and a re-usable card from Lindley.  Lindley didn't write directly on the card so that it can be reused!

Drop by the Stamping Ground for other desks to visit!

What Does God Require of Us? The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Every year, The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated around the world (traditionally from January 18 to 25).  This year's theme comes from this bible verse:

With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with tens of thousands of rivers of oil?  Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?‘ He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?  (Micah 6: 6-8)

Is Christ divided? (1Cor 1:13). For this reason we gather in worship to pray for that unity which Christ wills for his Church, and we are called to break down such walls of divisions among and between us. - Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Brochure 2013 

Let us love one another because He first loved us.

I'm sharing this with blog friends in Inspire Me Monday, Monday Mantras Inspirational and Word Art Wednesday.

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: A Hat, A Cat and All That

It seems Wednesdays are the only days I get to post on my blog, thanks to our weekly link party, WOYWW, where we can travel the world peeking at desks full of arts and crafts and all sorts of other stuff.  On my desk is a "hat"  which I wore to our office hat party last night...

an ATC of our cat, Truffles, that Lindley at ATCs for All made for me...

(here is Truffles in her Christmas collar...)

a new book...

and a page from my prayer journal (for Word Art Wednesday and Art-Journal-Journey)...

 May we all have this hope in whatever challenges that come our way.  Happy WOYWW, everyone!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Love One Another

I've been trying to tidy up for this new year and on my desk is a binder I'm using to help me organize stuff I'm supposed to do.  I also finished the pages in my prayer journal and I'm starting on a new one!

Here is a page I made recently of one of my favorite verses, one I always try to grow in obeying.  As one of Regina Brett's Life Lessons goes "All that truly matters in the end is that you loved."

My reading for today says "Whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him... perfect love casts out fear."  1 John 4:11-18  Whatever challenges I face or fear, I hope to remember this - He loves me, I have nothing to fear.

My unfinished journal for today
I also received some love from a blog friend, Jozart, who traded a lovely ATC with me and sent me a whole bunch of lace goodies. Thank you, Jo!  

Give some love as you drop by love-ly blog friends who join WOYWW, Inspire Me Monday and Word Art Wednesday!
