On Servants and Clutter!

So many have remarked on how small my desk is,
but I have to confess that my work area is rather large...
especially if you consider that I also use my floor a lot! 
I haven't gathered enough courage to show 
the extent of my mess in my craft room.
I have absolutely no excuse,
especially since I have a helper
who cleans up after me,
but of course has no idea
what to do with my clutter!

The reading on my journal today 
is about the faithful servant who is ready
for her master's return.
She will be rewarded!

In the Word Among Us,
I liked this meditation:
"To get ready for Jesus' return
means to welcome Him
into our hearts at every opportunity.
It means looking at every situation
through the eyes of faith,
trying our best to find 
Jesus' presence and His will.
It means assessing 
every circumstance in our lives
according to the commands 
and promises of the gospel.
In short, it means living
with our eyes fixed on heaven
as we go about our lives here on earth." 

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!

  1. "looking at every situation
    through the eyes of faith,
    trying our best to find
    Jesus' presence and His will" ---

    We must fix our gaze on the Lord!
    May He help us when we fail to do so.

  2. That is a challenging meditation. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Hi Patsy - thank you for linking up with me today. I really appreciate it. God bless

  11. I think it's something to do with the comfort zone - to have all your creative tools and ideas gathered around you. Years ago when my father was in the Army and we had daily help,my mother used to tell me that Mrs Vine (the help) wasn't there to tidy after me, simply to clean after I tidied. Good lesson, hard learned!! You'd hate it if someone else tried to sort out your stuff though, huh!

  12. Thanks for your sweet visit today. My Daddy had a very cluttered desk, but knew where everything was. He was a very smart businessman. I have way too much clutter around. But my heart is on the Lord. Blessings ~

  13. No-one else can possibly tidy up your crafting stuff for you. You would never find it again.

  14. As much as I would love to have some one tidy up for me I know I would hate it really. For me clutter is a sort of comfort blanket. xx

  15. I always enjoy a peek at others' studio :)

  16. Nice to see others have clutter too. Wish I was lucky enough to have someone clean after me. Thanks for sharing a thought provoking post.


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
