Every Saturday, I share three simple things that brought me happiness during the week. These posts may grow or evolve as time passes. Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
This week, I have quoted Philippians 4:4 countless times.
The week wasn’t horrible, but there were some moments of definite frustration (Does anyone want to get the marinara sauce out of my white shirt?). In those annoying moments, joy can still be found in the Lord. His grace is sufficient for every day, and His mercies are new every morning.
That being said, I can easily think of three simple joys from this week.
1. Decorating my office
I started my job on Monday, and my (temporary) office has two walls of built-in bookshelves. Despite adding more items to the shelves every morning, they are starkly empty. I won’t be in that office for long, but I am having fun trying to fill all the shelves.
2. Eating outside
Lunch breaks are a glorious thing. This week, the weather has been great, and I love taking a short walk to a picnic table so that I can eat outside.
I am a complete nerd. I created so many spreadsheets for work this week. It was great.
What were your simple joys this week?
