The Simple Things

1. Two days of rain. I can't remember the last time it rained and the two days of cozy-stay-inside-and-enjoy-coffee-while-getting-things-done were much needed.

2. Friends with powerful examples of faith. I read blog posts and emails from friends this week who are living a minute-to-minute kind of faith. It does two things for me: one, it reminds me how lacking I am in my day-to-day faith; and two, it motivates me to pursue Jesus with more intention so that I am not found wanting when the difficult times come.

3. Healthy family! No mass quantities of tissues this week. No mixing acetaminophen into yogurt or applesauce.  No middle-of-the-night wake-ups. No backing out of pre-planned activities because someone wasn't feeling well.

What about you - what Simple Things did you appreciate this week?

  1. Yah, too bad I couldn't read any of those "meaty" blog posts over here, eh? :-) JUST KIDDING!!! Leaving your sweet babies, going to a foreign country, leading students, going on (puke-inducing) plane and bus rides, getting little sleep, working your keister off while there...that my dear, is not only is faith in action!
    Love you! :-)
