Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Yesterday (Monday, February 11), I spent most of the day working and rearranging my computer/craft room.  I've got toooooooooooo much stuff for this little room!  So, I'm trying to par it DOWN.....WAY down!  :D  The task at hand is going through the TONS of scrapbooking magazines I have saved over the years and determining if I really need to keep on keeping them!  I've been tearing out what I want and throwing the rest away!  Just toooooooooooooo much stuff!

I did take some time to finish an art journal spread I was working on, so here that is:

Lots of layers of paints and stencils, embossing powder (causing the resist effect on the white flowers in the corners) and washi tape AND the final touch.....Aria's (Lynne Anzelc) butterfly from her Country Road Elements found at Scrap Art Studio here:  http://www.scrapartstudio.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=127_130&products_id=1446

The song lyrics kind of washed out with the light.  It reads:

I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses.
And the voice I hear falling on my ear -
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me and He talks with me.
And He tells me I am His own.
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known.
