Thankful Thursday #11: Simple Pleasures

We are all so caught up in the rush and clutter of modern life, that we have forgotten to delight in the day-to
-day simple pleasures in life. Small simple delights may seem nothing at the time, but when you look back
 or look deeper, you will realize it is the accumulation of these simple pleasures that make life enjoyable 
and memorable. (Quotes found here)

"That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest." Thoreau

"We do not remember days, we remember moments."Cesare Pavese 

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and 
realize they were the big things." - Robert Brault 

"You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only 
what you really need." Vernon Howard

 I have been trying to find joy in the little things lately, such as...

A new free sink on the deck...
An inexpensive new ceiling fan for our bedroom...
A sweet bouquet of flowers from a friend when I was feeling blue...
A new teapot found a Goodwill this past week. I've been looking for one for a while...
Fresh, homegrown tomatoes and pepper from our garden...
More pretty flowers from an arrangement at church, I love the ladybug!
I made a sweet little strawberry garland for my kitchen-- it matches pretty well!

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 

Psalm 31:19

How abundant are the good things 
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all, 
on those who take refuge in you.

Romans 14:6

"Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God."
