One of my readers suggested this month's topic and I'm so excited about it: Simple Pleasures. God began teaching me about simple pleasures last year, and intensified it earlier this year while I studied the book of Ecclesasties. I truly believe it is a spiritual thing to enjoy the simple pleasures in life and give thanks for them. In fact, I'm so stoked about this month's topic that - for this month only - even if you don't write a devotion but just a post on this topic - come link up. I want to hear what you have to say! What are your simple pleasures and how do you make room for them in your life, or is that a struggle to remember to do?
"So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God."
~ Ecc 3:12-13, NLTI'll be in the coffee shop today sipping another of my simple pleasures, a pumpkin spice latte, while I read about yours. And on Wednesday I'll select one winner from among the participating writers to receive a copy of my new book It's No Secret: Revealing Divine Truths Every Woman Should Know. So you have until Wednesday evening to post and link. Since curling up with a good book is another of my simple pleasures, I sure hope you win.
A few of my favorite simple pleasures include: time to browse in a book shop, time to linger in a coffee shop, time to relax in a bubble bath, a weekend afternoon nap, scented candles, cooking with my husband, starting or ending the day out on the patio, a walk on the beach, sleeping with the window open, the smell of soup cooking all day in the crock-pot, a super soft blanket, fresh basil ... well, enough of my rambling, let's hear what you wrote.
