WOYWW: Happy 40th Anniversary Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon!

Last Sunday, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of our prayer community, Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon (The Joy of the Lord).  For our celebration, we all came in "Filipiniana" outfits and on my desk today for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday are some of the accessories I wore or considered to wear...

I wore a T'boli blouse with these beads I bought in General Santos City.

"The Tboli are one of the indigenous peoples of South Cotabato in Southern Mindanao" -Wikipedia.  The blouse is filled with wonderful applique and embroidery...

See the 40th anniversary logo my daughter designed?  And the banner that I designed...

"Starting out with 41 men and women in July 1975, the Ligaya now counts some 1,900 members (including children of all ages) from diverse socio-economic backgrounds bound by the common desire to live out the Christian life to the fullest and to serve the Church as a body." - LNP website

And so we celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness to us through all these years.  When we offer him whatever little we have, like the little boy and his 5 loaves and 2 fishes, our mustard seed faith can grow and become the largest of all garden plants...

Be blessed, dear blog friends!

WOYWW: Celebrating 40 Years

Last week, the shocking news of WOYWWer Eliza Queenartoypia's sudden passing brought sadness all the way to the Philippines.  Although we never even met, she would sometimes drop by my blog and I would sometimes drop by hers.  That's the way it is in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. You get to peek at desks and make blog friends around the world.

This year (this weekend to be exact) our prayer community, Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon is celebrating 40 years of God's faithfulness.  My daughter, Elyse designed the 40th year logo (with our community logo in the zero).  

Every year we have a parade of banners.  This year, there will be 40 banners!  They gave me the words to put and asked me to design the banner and have it made.  Here it is, folded on my desk. No, I did not sew it.  I'm sure Annie would have done an excellent job of it! Here is the design I made.

God has blessed me greatly through our community and as I looked for a journal illustration to share today, this is what I found.  Indeed, how can I ever make a fair return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?  Impossible. 

Thank you for dropping by today!

WOYWW: Inspiration

Is it just me or are the days flying by so quickly for you, too?  Seems like it was just Wednesday and now it is time to post again for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Here is some pretty paper packaging that I saved from a box of some Japanese sweets...

I will use it for collaging and for inspiration to draw some flowers.  More inspiration to be found in this new book I bought from a Filipino author, Abbey Sy...

 and a journal illustration for Word Art Wednesday with some hand lettering inspired by the book...

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."  

What a wonderful reminder from scripture! Thank you for dropping by, dear blog friends!  Be blessed!

Look what, or rather, who, is on my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday   Such a beautiful work of art if you ask me! Her name is Truffles and she has taken over my desk. And while I'm on the subject of cats, I though you would enjoy seeing the CEO (Cat Executive Officer) of our family business. Oreo comes to work with us most days...

Would you like an officemate like him?

For Word Art Wednesday, a verse that speaks of the sheep recognizing the Shepherd's voice.  May I always recognize my Shepherd's voice.  Blessings to all of you! Thank you for dropping by!

What a difference a weekend makes!  This edition of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday features a much tidier desk than last week, thanks to a tidy up during the weekend.  The only things in the center (because of course, I used the push back method) are a few charms and bookplates I bought in a craft sale...

and a prayer journal illustration with a set of pens I used on it...

I'm reminded of a wonderful verse in Lamentations 3:22-23, "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."

And so, I rely on God's mercy for all that is not right in my life and in the lives of those I love.  Praise God that his mercies are new every morning!

Have a great week, dear blog friends.  Thank you for dropping by!
