Simple Things that Bring Me Joy

Updated on June 17, 2014

It can be easy to point out the negative things that are going on around us. But how often do we stop to see the lovely things that happen all the time? We don't have to wait for something huge to appreciate the good and beauty in this life. There is something to be seen in every day, whether it is big or small. Sometimes it's the smallest things that bring us the most joy.

Whether it keeps us grounded, gives us a break from business or simply reminds us to be thankful...taking time to enjoy the "simple things" brings peace and freedom.

So Simple_by Stacie Orrico

2 Corinthians 1:12

For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in this world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God and supremely so toward you.

Things That Bring Me Joy

These are in random order.

  • The very first snowfall
  • Hearing little children sing
  • Giving and receiving a sincere "I love you" (The same goes for a smile.)
  • Getting a phone call from someone I haven't spoken to in a while
  • Being able to enjoy a good movie
  • Laughing so hard that it makes me cry
  • An answered prayer
  • Being reminded of God's love
  • Singing my favorite song
  • Wearing my favortive color (pink)
  • Seeing a rainbow
  • Seeing a butterfly go by
  • Driving past my favorite tree or scenery
  • Having a good conversation with a stranger

      Beautiful. I too enjoy taking in the beauty around me - so many things that seem so small or tend to be overlooked by so many - but those are the very things that bring me joy, especially because I know God has placed those things there just for me* (and yours for you!)

      You seem to be very joyful and secure in the Lord - that's beautiful*

      God Bless You

      The simple things in life bring you joy more than the fancy stuff so true about life.

      Wow! I loved this.

      Simple things that bring me joy are walking through a meadow of wildflowers and walking by an ocean, bay or lake at sunrise or sunset.

      Voted up across the board except for funny.

      You say an answered prayer brings you joy. Would you mind sharing an answered prayer with us? I'd love to hear how God has broken through for you.

      Crissylite, you have chosen a wonderful subject to write on. The hub, though small is well written. The list is interesting and beautiful to me- as really those seemingly insignificant little things are the core of our being and hence joyful. I think you may add a line or two on each listed joy- to give a bit more breadth to your otherwise charming hub. Voted up and shared.
