I Am More Blessed To Give Than To Receive | Free VIDEO

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a sweet Thanksgiving with family and friends and if you were finding yourself alone yesterday I hope there was time to create, read, walk and just enjoy the day.

We were only going to have my mom and brother over and before we knew it we had 21 people in the house and tables everywhere and it was fabulous!

We were moving the piano and squishing people in and it made my heart very, very happy.  We have good people in our life and we do not take it for granted!

There are a lot of dishes on the counter still if anyone loves to wash:-)


Today I am a guest artist over at His Kingdom Come and I am talking briefly about how it is better to give than receive.

I know it is fitting because the time of year but also because there is so much going on in the world and we each have gifts that are needed so greatly!


Acts 20:35 NIV

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

    I went to this bible study site and the first post was that “this website will be closing” due to no funds to pay for the hosting/website. They said they will be on FB but there are many, many people that are not on FB.

      Kim, yes HKC is closing, but there is a thriving and wonderful Facebook group! You don’t have to buy into the whole social media thing if you don’t want to…it’s simple to join FB – I did it lol, it had to be! – and you can just stick with being a member of that one group! I hope you will feel able to join us in the Facebook Group! There are some wonderful people and wonderful artwork too there! God bless x

    This morning, a little voice told me to look at your blog. I have been trying to listen to that quiet voice, it is so easy to not always hear it, and what a gift I found. Very recently, I lost my dear, sweet brother to pancreatic cancer. Needless to say, it has been a difficult journey. I have always found comfort in art play, and often turn to your site for inspiration. Today I found such a reward in your words, they spoke to my heart and lifted my spirit. It’s as if they were meant for me. I know that there will be ups and downs in the days ahead. But I want to thank you for your generous heart. And for sharing a bit of your one wild and precious life with us. Blessings to you and your family this holiday season.

      Linda, I am truly so sad to hear about your dear brother. Thank you for taking the time to comment and to in turn give us all the chance to lift you and your brother’s family up in prayer. What a loss for all of you!

    Thank you for sharing with HKC. Great inspiration and some ideas on some different mixed media for our journaling. 🙂
