Simple Pleasures

These are the things I am finding joy in lately. As always, I am finding the Lord's goodness all around me. My prayer is that I will continue to have eyes to see the simple blessings I am afforded on a daily basis.

* wonderful friends
* a wonderful haven in my little home
* the presence of the Lord
* babysitting
* a wonderful, Spirit-filled church community
* discovering the beauty of things long dormant
* being refined and made new by the Author of all good things
* music
* being intentional in intercession
* being able to build others up
* becoming more comfortable in my own skin
* inviting the Holy Spirit into my day

I am finding such a joy and a peace in this season of my journey. In a time when most people wonder what their lives will look like, I am confident in where my future lies. It lies in the hands of a present, ever-unchanging Father and Friend that has my best in mind at all times, in all seasons and in all circumstances. Boy that takes the pressure off me.

Hey Lauren,
No, it wasn't First Colony although I've heard good things about that church.
Thanks for the offer to help me meet your aunt though!
