Simple Things

The air was crisp and the sun shone brightly on our morning walk.

While Jada sniffed and occasionally bounced on the other end of the leash, I just breathed it all in . . . Content and at peace with the world.

It was free, this lovely interlude, something these days that I no longer take lightly.

If you watch the news, read the paper, or even experience in a personal way, you know that times are getting tough and the signs point to it getting tougher before it gets better.

It’s hard not to worry is it?

Thankfully, we know that God is in control.

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink: or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air: they do not sow or reap or store away in barns,and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Mathew 6:25-27

Easier said than done though, isn’t it?

I’ve chosen to watch and read only what I need to to stay informed.

Then I focus on what I have, faith, a home, a job, a wonderful family, and good friends.

And I’m making a list of the small things that make life beautiful:



fresh baked bread,

a pretty fall vignette,

art, books, good food, sheets fresh from the line, autumn leaves and

silly hairy dogs.

This is only the beginning of my list.

What’s on yours?
