WOYWW: Tidy or Not

Oh, my, both my desks are in a mess and it is time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Here is my main desk...


and this is my prayer desk!...


Well, talking about this mess, I recently read a reflection by Dorotheus of Gaza...

"I heard it said of a brother that if, when he went to see someone else, he found his cell in a state of neglect and in disorder, he told himself: “How happy is this brother to be completely detached from earthly things and to carry his spirit on high so well that he doesn’t even have the time to tidy his cell!” If he then went to another brother and found his cell tidy, clean, and in good order, he told himself: “This brother’s cell is as clean as his soul. As is the state of his soul, so is the state of his cell!” He never said of anyone: “This one is untidy,” or: “That one is frivolous.” Because of his excellent state, he benefited from everything. May God in his goodness also give us a good state so that we might benefit from everything and never think badly of our neighbor."

Hopefully, the state of my desk does not reflect the state of my soul!  But then, I am also not like the one who was "completely detached from earthly things... that he doesn’t even have the time to tidy his cell!"  Fortunately, in WOYWW, there are tidy  and clean desks and no one thinks badly of anyone, whatever the state of their desks!  1 Peter 5:5 gives good advice: clothe yourselves with humility!


Happy Wednesday everyone!

We'd all be in trouble if that was the case, mine would be so bad it would be in turmoil. The girl is absolutely stunning and serene

Peter got it right. I think we all go throught these stages while we create and make it through the day by day stuff. I am always inspired by your work. Peg R 26

Simply fabulous desk.
I love the complicated (not messy) desks as it gives us something to look (ok snoop) at.
You girl is breathtaking. Fabulous work. :) #27

Both desks are very interesting! I think a messy desk is inspiring. Sometimes, I find something on mine leftover from a previous project and my next project starts with that! Happy WOYWW! #41

Oh Peggy - I love the devotional, but I am not always that charitable - I try :-) but then again your desks look way tidier than mine :-)
Blessings
