Another simple joy this week that truly blessed me was to go with my husband to a 50th birthday celebration of a friend, and to see other good friends there and get caught up on what they have been doing this summer. A few of us sat and chatted on the enclosed back porch, and I think I could've visited with them for several hours, as we have the Lord in common and we were blessed having this time together.
This morning, my husband and I painted our side garage door a new color; he painted one side and I did the other. I love to help him do things around our home, as most of the big stuff falls on him to do. So when I can, it gives me simple joy to be able to help him.
I have noticed as we all share in this Simple Joys Saturday meme that we tend to have our most joyous times with the Lord and with the people in our lives we love. It is no wonder, since our Lord Jesus tells us to:
"Love the Lord with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it:
Love your neighbor as yourself."
It truly is a simple joy to follow these commandments He has given us. It is also a simple joy to connect with our friends in blogs and read what you all enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend!
