What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: A Jumble of Projects

If ever there was a time when I was tempted to do a bit of tidying up before I took my weekly WOYWW picture, it was this week!  There's been very little progress on my Giveaway girls (I will have a giveaway soon and will let the winner pick one!)  because I have been busy learning Adobe Photoshop and making a poster for a prayer rally in November.

For those of you who enjoy a peek into my prayer journal, here is a page illustrating Psalm 147...


And beside it I copied out a quotation about prayer from John Tauler, a German preacher from the Middle Ages, "For my part, I tell you only this: truly detach yourself from yourself and from all created things and raise your soul wholly to God above all creatures, into the deep abyss. There, immerse your spirit in God’s spirit in true abandonment…, in a real union with God…, Ask God there for everything he wants us to ask him, what you desire and what other people desire from you. And hold this as certain: what a tiny, little coin is with regard to a hundred thousand gold pieces, that is what all external prayer is with regard to this prayer, which is a real union with God, and with regard to this inflowing and fusion of the created spirit in the uncreated spirit of God…"


Check out other desks and join in the fun of WOYWW! And I'm also planning to link up to Word Art Wednesday Random Journal DayHeartprint Hallelujahs,  Faith-filled Friday, Paint Party FridayArt Journal Every Day and Spiritual Sundays.


Ingvild Bolme is having an amazing giveaway to celebrate her new blog design.  I'm crossing my fingers!

Hi. I am trying once again to thank you for the beautiful ATC which I received about a week ago. I have sent several comments this week, but when I go to publish them, they just disappear. Maybe it will work today.
I loved your Psalm 18 post last Monday, and todays journal as well, and your ladies are fabulous. Kate x

I love the encouragement to be considerate of each individual person, unique and valued and Known, despite the reality of it being impossible to know everyone.

we can shown this concern for the people we do meet.

in our culture we have a horrible pride in being able to state 'I don't do the detail' as if it is a good thing.

It is in the details that we find 'God'

lovely post Peggy,

What a beautiful post, Peggy. The words on the starry sky are simply beautiful...I do love your handwriting, it fits on the page so well. And you're right, beauty is in the detail of the smallest thing.

It is looking a little cluttered on your desk. You're running out of space! Welcome to the club. We have a not very exclusive membership. We also partner with FSA-flat spaces anonymous for those who have no flat space anywhere to play.

Beautiful journal page and love quote.

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your comment, Peggy - like you, most of the time I'm just trying to get my post up in time to mess about with things like annotating but I suddenly got the urge and had the time, so I went for it! (Just hope people aren't expecting it every week lol!!)

I'm excited about using the recycled stuff and want to do some blog posts about it soon.

Your wonderful ATC has arrived - thank you sooo much for such a little treasure - I have emailed you.
