Shelter in place? How boring that’s going to be
No concerts, dining out, etc., just sitting around watching tv
But something happened surprisingly
I discovered being happy with doing everyday simple things

Simple things, like trying a new cake recipe
After all, due to closure, can’t get favorite cake from bakery
Time has allowed new household abilities
Cleaning, gardening and fixing things
The Bible says the joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10)
And the Lord will show you how to get joy in the simplest things
He will give you joy even when you’re doing nothing

Because it’s not what you do, it’s your attitude
It can be one of feeling something missing or one of gratitude
Be still for a minute or a few
Meditate on the number of ways you’ve been blessed
And thank God for discovering simple happiness.
