Simple Joy Saturday #13

Simple Joy Saturday #13

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!

November 25 – December 1

1. Un-seasonal weather

63 degrees Fahrenheit on December 1?! Sign me up!

2. My Christmas tree

When I came home yesterday, I noticed a dim light in my bedroom. I assumed that my mom had left the closet light on after getting wrapping paper.  In actuality, she had left this Christmas tree on my shelf.

3. The book of Hebrews

I am not trying to sound super spiritual. In fact, selfishness and disappointment drove me to read Hebrews this week, and it slapped me (with much-needed force) right in the face. It reminded me that God does not forsake His children. It commanded me to “let no root of bitterness spring up” (12:15), and let me tell you, some bitterness was definitely growing. It comforted me because we were not created for this world; we await a permanent city where we will worship Him eternally.
