Good Thursday morning to you!!
It has been a busy week and today will be no different. I wish it were "fun" busy but its not. Doctors appointments, grocery store, etc...
I did get to spend some time with my oldest last night. He said, "Mom, this still feels like home when I come over." Awwww I told him this will always be your home. He turns 25 in a few days and we are going to celebrate his day by taking him where ever he wants to eat and he usually wants a homemade cake. This is my no fuss son.
Anyway, my Simple Pleasure for today:
I was looking at my pictures of the mountains and some on Pinterest and as I was looking at them, I thought that you can go to the highest point in the mountains where we live and see beauty you would never see a few thousand feet below BUT there is beauty to be found everywhere. All you have to do is look.
There is a hiking trail we like and the hike is pretty hard but when you get to the top, a waterfall awaits you. It's beautiful. There is another hike we went on as children and it's a five mile hike but when you get there, another waterfall. We used to swim there. So much fun.
As I have written before, you can be driving along in Cades Cove or having a picnic and suddenly bears show up.
Deer appear out of nowhere and dart across your car. A rainbow can pop out. My point, be intentional in looking for these delights that God wants to show us everyday. Ask Him to delight you each day. He will answer if you do.
The pictures below are my Simple Pleasures today.
