In 2019, I am posting a roundup of “simple joys” on the last Saturday of every month. Feel free to share your own simple joys in the comments!
- In April, I went on my first on-road bicycle ride since 2006ish. This satirical guide of hand signals was far from helpful, but I think you will enjoy it even if you aren’t a cyclist.
- David Black was a guest lecturer at PIU this month. I enjoyed the lectures, and I spent too much time reading his blogs about three of my favorite things–the Bible, running, and travel.
- For the 100 Books Bucket List, I read A Long Walk to Freedom, the autobiography of Nelson Mandela. It was informative in many ways, and I would recommend it!
1. “Use Me Here” by Everybody Duck
“Despite my fear, I place my life in Your hands”
2. “Me” by Taylor Swift
(It’s not the type of song I would normally share, but you have to admit that the video is incredible, even if you don’t like the song.)
“I promise that you’ll never find another like me.”
3. “Prize Worth Fighting For” by Jamie Kimmett
“When every day is just another struggle
And every choice is an act of war
Gotta pray, gotta press on
To the prize worth fighting for”
1. I saw something this month that I had never seen before–snow in April! Before this year, I had never seen snow in NC after March 17. Here is a shot of my PB&J in the spring “blizzard.”
2. My Wednesday-night Bible study group hosted a cookout, and over 200 people showed up. It was a little crazy, but also fun!
3. One of the best things about spring is celebrating Easter–the day that our Savior conquered death once for all!
What were your simple joys this month?
