What's on my Workdesk Wednesday: A Lot!


So, it's Wednesday once again (whaaaat? already?) and there goes my plan to post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Here is my desk today, with a lot going on for our What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday link party.  Some new craft books and ATCs that I stuck on a sheet to scan (I plan to make a post about them but who knows how THAT plan will go)...


And behind the mug of water, the unfinished ATCs from the same set...


And here is my reflection guide for our "Week of Prayer for Christian Unity," an "international ecumenical observance" which we observe from January 18 to today.  This year's theme is "We will all be changed by the victory of Our Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 15:51-58.  

Change doesn't happen overnight and we often have to be patient (the hairdryer shows I haven't been patient in waiting for the paint to dry on it's own)...


Here is a page from my prayer journal, illustrating David and Goliath...


and a quote from the daily devotional, The Word Among Us"The giant of division seems entrenched and formidable.  We may feel powerless against him... But don't forget: This battle is the Lord's, not ours to win... We need to carefully select the smooth stones he has placed at out disposal... One that flies straight to the mark is love, choosing to think the best of each other.  Love deeply respects the other, listens to the other, and is open to learning from the other... If we can just learn to look upon each other with love, we will go a long way toward the unity we all long for." 

And I think about the WOYWW bloggers who accept one another even if we all have different beliefs and ways of doing things.  We don't insist on our own way, or judge others who don't do things the way we do it.  We learn from one another and appreciate one another.  We encourage one another to be the best we can be.  Now that's what I call unity.

p.s. There's still time to join the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software giveaway.

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm delighted you feel so positively about WOYWW, I can only agree, unity is really good word for it. I wondered what the hair dryer was for, should have guessed, I would bethe same if I used paint. I think that sort of impatience is entirely excusable!!

Katie said...

I love your David and Goliath page. It has always been one of my favorite stories from the Bible. Also, I very much enjoyed your words about the unity among WOYWWers. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Happy WOYWW!
