A Few of My Favorite Things

Staying home and the news has me feeling a little down- so I’m trying to focus on all of the things that bring me joy. Today I made a list of all the things that make me happy- and I’m sharing them with you!

In the words of Maria Von Trapp….These are a few of my favorite things:

Bible Verse

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”the verse that always grounds me and reminds me of the importance of Jesus.

Holiday

Hymn

God of the SparrowThis is the hymn that taught me how to read! I joined the church choir when I was a little girl and couldn’t read yet. This hymn talks about God’s love for all His creatures, and it brings back happy memories from my childhood.
