an act of worship || pure delight


i enjoy a lot of things. 

my husband is the sweetest ever and he delights in making my sweet little things happen so he can see me light up with a smile. 

i used to think i need to grow up and get more serious 
because i'm too silly and laughy & happy all of the time

but now I know that's not true. 

God delights in his daughter delighting.

 delighting in the sun & the flowers & warm, sweet smelling coffee & adorable baby doll dresses. 
after all, it's all His creation and from Him that it's even possible. 

it's one of my acts of worship to my King. 
to delight and give thanks a million times a day. 
for all of the silly little things. 
and just enjoy His Glory. 

when you give your heart and life to God, your heart changes. 
it just does. 
it's glorious. 

and, i think, you learn to delight & give thanks in all things. 
everyday things. 

so i will delight in the flowers and give thanks to God for their beauty. 
i will enjoy my time with my girlfriends as we all try to become better women of God. 
i will laugh my head off at silly things with ethan.
we'll use silly voices and make each other hurt from the laughs. 
i will praise His name at His skies and the stars and gorgeous summertime cotton candy sunsets.
i will wear ridiculously cute baby doll dresses.
i will wear man sweaters. 
i will tear up when i see adorable birds, in twos. 
yeah, i do that. two birds were perched right outside on our front set when i pulled in the driveway
and i just teared up. i see God everywhere. His creation is so beautiful.
and remember that even the birds are significant to Him. 
i will question His creation every time i see a spider. 
and i will delight when it's dead and no longer in my shower.
i will give thanks for the good, even when there's bad. 
sometimes there just seems to be more bad than good. 
and it's very hard at times. i know. 
but we can always choose Joy and thanksgiving. 

i'm so thankful for a husband who encourages me to be me and not to "just grow up"how dull a life that would be!
