WOYWW: Singapore

I just got back from a short trip to Singapore.  And although I collect a lot less brochures when I travel now, I still came home with a few.  Even the paper bag from TWG didn't escape me.


Staying in a spic and span hotel room made us want to clean up our bedside windows which used to be piled high with books.


So I had to make room for the books...


While in Singapore, we visited the Singapore Art Museum (free on Friday nights).  Here is a piece painted right on the walls...


and some paintings by children...


Pretty good, huh?




...some words from Pope Francis' "Evangelii Gaudium" The Joy of the Gospel:

"The primary reason for evangelizing is the love of Jesus which we have received, the experience of salvation which urges us to ever greater love of him. What kind of love would not feel the need to speak of the beloved, to point him out, to make him known? If we do not feel an intense desire to share this love, we need to pray insistently that he will once more touch our hearts...The best incentive for sharing the Gospel comes from contemplating it with love, lingering over its pages and reading it with the heart. If we approach it in this way, its beauty will amaze and constantly excite us.

For more desks to visit, my dear blog friends, drop by Julia's and be amazed about what's on desks from around the world.  Thank you for dropping by!

Very interesting photos. Your message is part of the reason for my blog and I agree with it whole heartedly. I especially agree with reading the gospel with the heart. It opens door the eyes and mind are blind to.

Blessings

Peggy, So much wonderful stuff where do I start, You clearly had a super holiday and then came back and painted those beautiful pictures for WordartWednesday. And then you stirred my soul with that quote from Pope Francis.
bless you for sharing
