Think on These Things

Today’s post is rather lighthearted, inspired by a Facebook post by a dear friend, Stacey Pybus, and Philippians 4:8.

The Word says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”

We live in a sick, sad world, but we serve a Great, Good God. There is much to enjoy. Here’s a partial list of my favorite things. I’d love to hear from you.

Church. Worshipping. Hugging my hubby. Hugging my students. Coffee in bed. Not waking up to an alarm. Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves crash the shore. Puffy clouds. Church bells. Blue skies. The laughter of children. A sincere compliment. Checking things off my to-do lists. Funny cards. Sweet cards. Notes from children. Babies. Finding a true bargain. Avocado enchiladas. Christmas lights. A great book. Reading to my kids. Air conditioning. Light traffic. Hanging out with my besties. Being understood. Gentle rains. Exploring new places. The Word of God. Hearing my favorite songs. Laughing so hard it feels like a workout. Puppies. Chocolate. Group texts. Christmas carols. Easter. Fun times with my family. Snow. Chaco sandals. A great purse. A job well done. The cry of seagulls. Sand between my toes…
