On Saturdays, I share three simple things that brought me happiness during the week. These posts may grow or change as time passes. Please feel free to share your own simple joys in the comments section!
It’s been a while since I shared my weekly joys, not because my life has lacked joy but because my life has lacked time.
October 6-12, 2018
1. Playing volleyball with elementary kids
The highlight was when a seven-year-old walked down from his perch on the bleachers and said, “I’m not going to play for long. I just want to show you how its done.” It was all fun and games until the same kid stole the ball because we weren’t keeping score.
2. Hunter’s conversation with Elyse Fitzpatrick on the Journeywomen Podcast
Elyse gave the great reminder that Jesus’ mother did not have a Bible, and the Apostle Paul didn’t have all the New Testament. Elyse did not say that we don’t need to read the Bible. Her point was that God’s ability to use us does not depend on our personal spirituality.
3. Early October
During the first weeks of October in North Carolina, you get the best of both worlds. it is completely acceptable to eat pumpkin and wear sandals at the same time.
