A Week of Simple Pleasures

"When I stop speeding through life, I find the joy in each day's doings, in the life that cannot be bought, but only discovered, created, savored, and lived."

--from Mitten Strings for God by Katrina Kenison

I thought it would be fun to share a photo every day for the next seven days of what I would deem a "simple pleasure" for that particular day. I am not a great photographer, so these are just humble attempts at sharing a slice of my life with you and for us to enjoy together all the wonderful simple things the Lord gives us daily.

My prayer is that I will have "eyes to see" all the everyday miracles and gifts that He bestows, and in turn, give Him greater glory for His goodness and love and beauty.

Would you like to join in and do the same?

I'm in! Now I have an excuse to take pictures every day and actually get them off my computer! I'm going to do a post over at my blog and link to yours =) Thanks for the inspiration!

That sounds fun! I will have to see if I can get my camera to agree (it likes to give me fits). I am looking forward to seeing your simple pleasures!

Mitten Strings from God is one of the few parenting books I return to again and again. I must have read that book at least five times by now.

I'm in kind of late, but what a great thing to do. Thank you for the idea, because really, it's the simple things that matter the most, right? I'll start my "week" a bit late. Found you through "High Desert Home", which I think we all adore!
