Today, I looked at my desk. It looked back…mocking me. I decided I wasn’t going to let my desk ‘dis’ me like that. And I had a re-visitation of starry host singing hallelujah and radiant glory shining down upon me (or How I Found the Possible Holy Grail of Paper Organization). And behold, a revelation on how to decide what to title the six sections in my (possible) Holy Grail of… Continue Reading
The Holy Grail of Organizing? Or Another Wasted Purchase? I Can’t Decide!
If you are like me, you have piles. Because organizing doesn’t always come easily for you. Deep down inside, you WANT to have files…neatly color-coded, alphabetized files in fashionable designs housed in cute but functional receptacles for said files.

And the take-away for me was about balance. [Want to join in on the Create in Me a Clean Heart Devotional and Journal?
