What simple things do YOU love?

It came to my mind the other day, how Moses was involved in the more “complicated” job of praying for the battle that Joshua & the Israelites were fighting in the valley below, but it took twice as many people to do the very simple job of holding up his hands while he prayed.  Every time his hands came down, the Israelites began to lose.  What an amazing illustration of the importance of the simple things!

Most people probably realize the value of “little things.”  But when you take the time to see how many you can think of… the responding comments should really add up into the thousands!

A few of mine have been mentioned already:  a candle flame, holding hands, my cat, a cup of coffee, music. (Well, maybe music is a more ‘complicated’ item.)  How about a smile, the Christmas colours of red and green, a sunny day, a comfortable place to sit…

The smell of…?  the touch of…?  the colour of…? doing… ?

“There were bells all around, but I never heard them ringing…”  May it never be simply because I wouldn’t stop and listen!

    Sunsets and rainbows. I know it sounds all airy-fairy, but I really do stop everything I’m doing to look at them. They sometimes literally take my breath away for a few seconds.

    The smell of Lilies-of-the-Valley, ripe peaches and freshly-peeled oranges.

    The sound of a really jazzy-swingy big band song with lots of horns, or voices singing in perfect harmony. The sound of my cat purring, because she didn’t know how when I first got her, and still only honours me with audible purring on rare occasions (I can feel her purrs much more often, but can’t hear them).

    The colour of periwinkles, and anything that’s periwinkle blue.

    Coming up with a really cleverly-placed word in Wordscraper – even if it doesn’t get a lot of points.

    Being out in nature right after a rainstorm. Thunder and lightning. Fireworks.

    All wonderful things! Those smells are all my “favourites”, too!
