Life can get so complicated and busy. I think it’s important to pause and reflect on the simple things. The simple things help me put my life in perspective, focus on what truly matters, and to demonstrate true gratitude.
So, what simple things do I mean?
A hot cup of tea and a stack of books I look forward to reading
Really good dark chocolate
Warm fuzzy socks
Waking up with a smile on my face when I remember it’s my day off work
Listening to my 11-year-old son sing along to the songs on K-Love
Listening to my 17-year-old daughter share her newest mission minded idea
Enjoying a delicious meal from Chipotle Mexican Grill (my favorite!)
Pausing to reflect on the beauty around me
The calm, quiet of morning
Coffee with a good friend
Yes, the simple things are worth pausing to embrace. Don’t let the noise of the world drown out the joy of everyday moments.
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
Sometimes, these desires are wrapped up in the simple moments of every day life.
What are your simple things, your simple moments? Take time today to to embrace them.
