This week Jake from Very Much Later put up a post about his messy desk. Then Floyd, from There Go I decided to follow suit.
As I found myself with an extra hour of free time this evening, I decided to organize the desk on which I prepare schoolwork and teach from during the week. It was neat on Monday, mind you.
As I entered the room, a thought hit me, and I immediately turned around and grabbed my camera.
I promise I didn't just slap my Bible down to try and make myself look good--I had totally been sitting there reading about 30 minutes before this photo was taken. And yes, I did eat some Tomato Basil Wheat Thins while I organized (and if you're wondering what the little gray figurine is at the back of the desk, I direct you to this video).
Like Jake and Floyd talked about in their posts--before I allowed God into the mess I had created in my life, I was basically useless. I was a ball of twisted emotion. I had no idea what I was doing to the people around me. I am so not that girl anymore, and I am extremely thankful. Piece by piece, He's showing me how to live life to its full. I love being able to look forward to every single day.
