Sweet... a word I love. The word "sweet" is, well, sweet. And I think anything that makes you smile inside is considered sweet to me. I love finding the sweet things in life... sweet friends, sweet verses and words, sweet blessings of every kind.
Today I just felt like sharing what things have been sweet for me today, and in life in general...
It was sweet to wake up to a rainy, chilly day today (I love it, it feels like true Autumn!).
It was sweet to come home to a clean and cozy house this evening.
It was sweet to walk beneath the glorious, sky-high trees today and feel the raindrops on
my head as they fell from the leaves and branches above.
It was sweet to look at the pond in front of those trees and see how the little
ducks and geese were enjoying how full it is now because of the rain.
It is always sweet to get on the elevator and have a happy conversation with
someone about something random, and then hearing them tell you "Have a good day!" as
they step out and tell you goodbye. I love friendliness.
It was sweet to smell the wonderful scents of supper cooking earlier this evening...
chili is so warm and filling and the perfect supper for a cold Fall day.
Sweet is what I thought of the weather around six today when I walked outside
and realized it had gotten colder!
It was sweet to have sweet, juicy strawberries at lunch.
It is sweet to read all of your blogs each week and find out how you have
been or what you have been up to, or to read something encouraging or inspiring about
your faith and walk with God, or something you share about your family or joys.
Sweet is also reading the lovely and kind comments you leave.
It is sweet to have time to journal every day while I eat lunch; I cherish
that time to relax and enjoy writing.
It is sweet when you see evidence that chivalry is still alive.
Sweet is walking into the house after a Fall candle, like Cinnamon or
Pumpkin Pie, has been burning, and having the delicious smells overwhelm me.
A sweet sound is the song of birds when I hear them outside my bedroom window.
It is sweet to be walking in the rain without an umbrella and trying to
cover my head with a jacket or whatever I have, then realizing that it isn't
any use, so I just embrace the fun, child-like feel of being soaked.
And one of the sweetest things I have seen recently...
walking down a hallway and passing by two college guys who stopped and prayed
together. You know you have a treasure in a friend you can
pray with and for. Hearing them gave me a feeling that is hard to describe.
I am so thankful for every sweet thing.
And I know I am leaving so many things out, but I love looking back
at all the things I can think of each day that were wonderful or stood out to me.
(And I chose to add the photo at the top because it reminds me of the joy I
feel on rainy days-like today- but I guess it is also fitting, as it could
without a doubt be described as sweet.)
What do you find sweet?
I hope y'all had a wonderful Wednesday!
