As I sit at my Desk.

What view do you have as you sit at your computer?

Maybe you have a window to gaze through, maybe you have a wall with a family picture or some other nice thing to look at or maybe you have different views each time because you sit different places to work on a laptop.

I have a hutch shelving unit as part of the back of my desk and on the top of it I have a variety of notebooks kept in place by a set of teddy bear bookends, a picture frame and some videos between a set of bookends which have sections for notes and odds and ends.

I looked up from my chair today and was struck by what I saw (and I have seen this over and over again but today it just stood out more probably due to the way we had been praying at the church prayer meeting last night) so I really had to take a picture of it.



A bookmark I had received some years ago on a Christmas card just saying MIRACLE and a little bit behind it a greeting card from which I had torn off the front part because it has a picture of Noah's Ark (and I love arks).
So today I was gazing at the phrase Wishing you a miracle and then there in front of it was that plain statement of fact in the bookmark.

How encouraging and inspirational is that to have to look up at as I sit at the computer?

I am just a bit disappointed that so many days & weeks had already passed and I hadn't been struck by those two objects being so close together until today, but I'm thankful I noticed it now.

Now I am waiting to see what the miracle (or miracles) will be,

                             because I do believe God can and does do miracles.


 Do you?

  1. Hi Sandra! I'm just discovering your blog, don't why I didn't see it before, maybe it's like our items on your bookshelf!
    Yes, I do believe in miracles. Last week at church they started worship for the kids and they sang 'if you have faith like a mustard seed'... and I use this verse in prayers and keeps thinking about it - actually rather singing it!
    A mountain is something too huge to be remove, the sea is where God puts our sins in, and the little mustard seed is this tiny thing that makes a huge difference...
    And I beleive miracles can be done in our everyday lives as well as in our spiritual and physical bodies.
    Miracles don't have to be spectacular, sometimes they are only miracles in the eyes of the person who benefits from it.

    1. Hi Beatrice, welcome to my blog. I'm so glad you are thinking about miracles too. Nothing is too hard for God.

  2. Hello Sandra - fancy meeting you here:) I think a little bit of a miracle (or magic) happens more often than we realise, but perhaps we don't all call it that.
    I'm very lucky that I look out on to fields and pasture and there's something rather magical in that as well.

    1. Hi there Caroline, when I look to the right I'm looking out of my window at the garden so not bad either. See you later at the group.

  3. I don't have much in my office as it's still fairly new to me. I do have a picture of my grandparents sitting on my window sill. They both passed away this last decade but they made such a huge impact on my life that a picture of them by my side while I work is necessary! I also have a view of our pond and field outside my window. The pond is freshly dug and needs work once we have the time and extra money. It inspires me to keep working hard! I get to watch the progress of our crops growing daily and when they are harvested, I see the rolling hills that go for miles! We live on very flat ground so to have a view of rolling hills in Northern Indiana is very rare :)

    I love your little computer nook! It looks cozy.

    1. Sounds lovely and peaceful atmosphere to work in Kelly, I have too much in my study which is a problem, I love it when I get it tidied up and feel like I have peace to work but then it's not always too long before it starts to get cluttered again. Thanks for commenting.

  5. Visiting you from Blog Formatting. I am lucky to have an office where I can surround myself with things I love. Your view --although you didn't notice it until today--is great. Sometimes we miss those little messages when we aren't paying attention. I love surprises.

    1. Thanks Linda, the little quiet messages are sometimes the greatest aren't they.
