Simple Pleasures

As many have heard, I've had a bit of a rough go of things here. I often go through my day frustrated and come home exhausted. Then the next is just the same, frustrating and exhausting.

This past week, God blew a breath of fresh air on me and I was so blessed.

It is often the little things in life that speak the most to me. So I have a roof deck. Nothing fancy, just stairs leading up to a flat, concrete roof. But it is pretty amazing nonetheless. In the daytime the view is beautiful, mountains, fields, rooftops with laundry hanging on clotheslines. I go up there often to sit and take a deep breath. Well, this time, I decided to go up at night time. I brought a blanket, a candle, my Bible, and a Handy Snacks pudding cup. Needless to say, it was amazing. The stars were beautiful, there was a soft breeze blowing, the candle light was just bright enough to allow me to dig into the Word, and the pudding cup was the icing on the cake.

And God met me there. It was like He was reaching down, giving me clarity, strength, and allowing me to breathe deeply.
