I have a makeshift desk on top of my mantle full of pictures, a baby hand print, and random knickknacks. It’s ideal because it’s the perfect height for me to stand as I work and keeps my laptop out of little hands’ reach. I also have a timely quote that I received in a package of clearance Christmas cards a few months back on my “desk”. It encouraged me then and continues to encourage me when I see it from time to time, so I hope it brings you hope today. Whether you’re fighting a stack of paperwork, an unending email queue, unruly kids, or something else, I pray you won’t be nursing a sense that you don’t matter. Where ever you find yourself today, may you “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ” (Colossians 3:23, 24). Happy Monday!
