This is a Five Minute Friday post (Finally on Friday :o).
Rules are: Write for 5 minutes, no over thinking, just go. Ready?
When I think of the word “Delight”, I think of a favorite verse.
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4
I wear this verse around my wrist each day. It is a reminder of where my life force comes from. It begs the question, Do I delight in Him always?
Though I do fall short of this often, there are many times I do find delight in Him. I also find delight in the little ways He shows me He loves me, He provides for me, He protects me.
Its the new job I will be starting shortly, the one where I get to be with people, helping and serving, all day. The new job where I get to talk to people about ways to make their homes and gardens, and thus their lives, more beautiful.
It’s the writers conference He has opened up for me to attend this weekend. A place to meet other believers and hone our craft.
It’s sharing a new book with family.
These are the smaller ways I delight in Him, in the things He opens up to me that speak to me in my heart.

As I was reading your post on Delight, I was thinking how can I do that more. Maybe it's just recognizing God in His everyday goodness and mercy. I especially liked what you wrote: I also find delight in the little ways He shows me He loves me, He provides for me, He protects me.
I love all these simple ways you've found delight and I love the way you connected them to your larger faithfulness and spirit. Lovely!
Thank you both for the encouragement. Some days I am not as good at it as I am on other days, but I'm learning each day!
