The Simple Things

This week was full. This week had some ups. And this week sure had some downs!

A few Simple Things helped make some of the downs bearable:

Starbucks Peppermint Mocha. My favorite. (Thanks Juli!)
Two little boys that stayed occupied for a very long time coloring boxes. If only they knew that some of their Christmas presents arrived in those boxes just hours before...! (And, here's another Simple Thing: I ordered several Christmas gifts from Amazon... cheaper than Toys R Us and Target and free shipping!)
A precious little girl that is all smiles. And, a big brother that loves his little sister so wonderfully much! Because honestly, when I'm having a not-so-good day, seeing this smile and hearing my kids laugh together makes the aarrgghh!! moment(s) bearable.
The best Simple Thing this week, though, was the reminder from Psalm 48:1: "Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise..." This helps me put things in perspective. God is great and always worthy of praise. Circumstances change. Possessions come and go. People are unpredictable. Not the case with God - and I praise Him for that!
