October Highlights

In a season of routines, I am learning to cherish what can be commonplace. So for October, I thought I’d share a handful of smaller joys from my month.

“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” -Laura Ingalls Wilder

The crunch of leaves under my feet

Watching stray pine needles scatter across the sidewalk

Hearing God’s loving conviction

Being challenged by failure

Breathing in the crisp morning air as I run

Belonging to a church

Long, productive days

A cloudless sky speckled with trillions of stars

Turning seventeen

Cozy Sunday afternoons

Warm sweaters

Gazing up at an umbrella of golden leaves

Early mornings of rest at Jesus’ feet

Bundling up for one last 5k

An early lunch at a unique cafe

Sharing life with a good friend

Late nights studying

Homemade pumpkin granola

“Becoming Elizabeth Elliot” by Ellen Vaughn

“Even If” by Kutless

A slow study of 1 Corinthians
