“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Simple Pleasures

I have reached a very contented place in life, I think I have learned how to be satisfied, deeply content sometimes it is the simplest thing that brings me happiness. Right now it's birds, I love the simplicity of the bird motif the peacefulness and serenity. It all began with a simple table cloth I found with a simple bird sitting on a branch with little red flowers. I looked at it a few times and did not buy it then it went on sale and I knew it was meant to be mine. Something in it just spoke to me and so it began.

At Christmas my sister gave me a simple white bird, I loved it and knew just the place for it, on my table.
A few years ago I found a great perfectly round bird nest in a light and saved it for one of the kids to take for show and tell that perfect nest made by real birds is home to my stone bird , it just speaks to my soul. Maybe I will add a few blue eggs to it, just for color. I am thankful for SIMPLE PLEASURES that bring contentment.

Live Simply and fill your day with simple pleasures.
